Technology has become an important part of our everyday lives. It’s important to keep up with the latest technology as it is always changing. Here are four reasons why a computer class should be taken in high school.
Reason #1. Most occupational jobs require basic computer skills. It’s important to know how to at least use Microsoft Word to be able to write down important reports. As technology advances, the expectations of computer knowledge will too.
Reason #2. Want to become better at problem solving? Take a computer class! Taking such classes will further your creativity and improve your way of thinking. This will help you out in the long run so that you look at things outside of the box.
Reason #3. Communication! Some students don’t know how to write a formal email to a teacher. This is a super important skill to attain. You can’t start an email to your CEO saying “Hey Joe..” It’s just not professional. Knowing how to construct a professional email is very important.
Reason #4. It’s fun! Taking a computer class will have you more interested than you think. You will always be engaged in activities that are hands on. It is definitely more fun than writing a bunch of notes on U.S. History.
So if you are thinking of expanding your knowledge on technology overall, take a computer class. It will benefit you more than you know.
