A challenge for teaching Computers cannot replace a teacher. Computers are amazingtools for teaching, but technology alone does not facilitate learning. If computers could replaceteachers, all the schools, colleges and universities would have computers for teachers. To meet the challenges of an always-evolving high-tech society, educators need to develop multiple forms of computer and information literacy to help improve education.
