Technology is becoming an important part of education. It is used at every grade
level from preschool to grade 12 in the public school systems. It is utilized in
post-secondary education and is a life-long skill. This project's purpose is to
show how cognitive skills can be enriched and focus on task can be enhanced
within the classroom through the use of computers. The final product is a
handbook for parents and educators to use composed of on-line computer
games focusing on specific educational skills. These games can be used to
possibly enhance skill acquisition in preschool aged children with or without
developmental delays.
