The computer is a useful tool for many students. All the schools in Singapore have computers. Students use computers in schools and many of them use computers at home too. The rate of using computers at home has been growing rapidly in recent years. This is a survey study of the use of home computers by students attending a neighborhood school. The target group is the Primary 5 students. In this study, we will find out the percentage of the students who have home computer, how they use computers at home, and how they use the Internet at home. The findings will provide a better picture of home computer use for parents and teachers.
