Some people believe the arts are more important than computer sciences. This could not be more incorrect. Computer science is growing exponentially every day. Computer science is important because it speeds things up, helps in accessing information, aids in communication, and many careers use technology.
First of all, time efficiency is very important when it comes to succeeding in your academic activities. Have you ever had to write a five-page essay? Handwriting things are thing of the past. Why right when you can type? Computers also aid in the time efficiency of mathematics. Imagine you have to create a spreadsheet for your accounting class. Would you rather take a pencil and draw the graph, or just type it into a predesigned template? Creating visual presentations are also a great deal easier with computers. When it comes down to it, you are going to save a great amount time using computers for classwork.
Secondly, computers make it nearly effortless to easily access information. For example, if you are assigned an assignment one Martin Luther King Jr., you could look up online archives on that person. Let's say, for instance, you were taking a course on current events. Your professor assigns you an essay on an event you know nothing about. You can always sort through newspapers, but that would be too strenuous of an activity. With a computer, all you have to do is go to an online newspaper website, and search for an article with that specific title. Personally, my favorite website is always been Google. Google is an integrated search engine, which helps you find things at the tip of your fingers. Just type in any keyword you can think of, and Google will give you the best results. With computers, you can access information with minimal effort.
Another example would be communication. With computers, there is a vast majority of options when it comes to communication. One way that people have communicated online for almost a decade now, is e-mailing. With e-mail, you can easily send text, photos, or full documents to one another. This would be especially proactive for a study group who didn't get to meet when they were supposed to. When it comes to communicating, you don't just have to communicate with people that you already know. Use the Internet as a source of meeting new people. You can do this by joining a social network. Social networking is not anything new to computers. They have been around for about five or six years. Millions of people worldwide have at least one social network. Have you ever wanted to send e-mail, but didn't want to wait so…
