This is a very broad topic that is changing quickly due to techonology's rapid growth. I would begin in the Education LibGuide, under the General Education tab. I'm choosing to start with the first database under Primary Databases, Academic Search Complete. Click on the database and log-in with your student ID # and the beginning of your Brenau email address. You'll see that by searching on Computers AND Eduction you will yield over 94,000 results. Yikes!

This is why you must pick more specific search terms and narrow your topic prior to researching. By computers do you mean desk tops, laptops, tablets, or smart-phones? Do you mean computers owned by students or supplied by the school? By education do you mean homework, testing, lesson planning, engagement, etc... Is there a particular classroom setting you have in mind? Let me give you an example of a more precise topic. High School and iPad yields 66 results.

I recommend you schedule an appointment with a librarian to work on developing some search strategies and narrowing your topic. You may request an appointment here
