RELATED LITERATURE
According to Ms. Edith K. Arthur from the website of yahoo,
student learning is improved with use of computer technologies. The
technology plan begins with a vision for student learning, a statement
beliefs and a rationale for creating and continuing to build networked
learning environment. It continues with a detailed explanation of
Technology Learning Standards for all students, a description of
network and telecommunication services, a description of professional
development strategies, benchmarks and timeless for accomplishment
of our learning goals, long-term funding strategies, and measures for
assessment and evaluation.
According to book that Office of Educational Technology
publishes which was “The National Education Technology Plan”,
computer is very important to the students because through computer
No Child will be left beyond.
According to the results of www.google.com, Ms. Rina Lopez
Bautista, the founder of Knowledge Cable, she says that computer
provides students more options for resources, methods, and
approaches for projects and also this will provide an almost limitless
amount of information and resources and computer will do new things
in new ways.
According to the book of Mr Johnson-Eilola, Johndan. Control and
the Cyborg(1993): 381-399”.He explains that computers are more of a
tool for process but the printed word remains the defining product and
the two don't always interact. He also states that the use of computers
can in fact enhance the writing process due to its ability to move large
chunks of information quickly, to delete unwanted sections, and to
allow quick in-text revision. He calls for teachers to consider this
"relatively new field of composing" and the effects it may have on
readers and writers.

METHODOLOGY
In this study the method of research used was the Historical
research. This research means the search for knowledge and truth as
searching to find out. It answer the questions, how computer helps the
college students in strengthening their learning, how does computer
improved their studies and what were the most common program of
computer that being used.
The method used in collecting data was the social survey. This
was concerned with the help of computer to the college students.
The instrument used in collecting data was personal interview to
some I.T. teachers because through this the knowledge of the
researcher will expand regarding the benefits of computer to the
college students.
Computer helps the study of college students as the aid in
their study, by surfing to the Internet like in the Google and Yahoo
websites which has a search engine to search the entire internet for
topics. To fasten or automate some processes, like accounting
programs or computerized exam. Also it helps the students in their
paper works such as writing reports or letters and doing presentation
for their projects. It also helps the students to create drawing or
designs that would enrich their creative young minds.
Some schools here in Valencia City like ACLC and STI have
enough sustain of computers in their schools. In their school they have
at least one is to one ratio of computer per student.

The performance of the students improved by the used of


computers in such way as they can use computer to seek some answer
s of their questions or assignments. One advantage of their learning
that helps and improves their performance is the use of multimedia-
not only picture or sound but combination in which is hard to present
only in drawing or pictures. Variety of stimulator, animation, web cast
and tutorials that requires interaction for the user is of great help in
learning.
A lot of programs are being use in order to run the computer.
One of them is the Operating System (OS) which is the boss. The OS of
the computer in the school mostly Windows XP, application programs
such as Microsoft office which includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
Access and application programs such as Microsoft Office productivity.
Another kind of programs is the programming languages were used by
the students to create programs. The least used programs in the
school are the business programs such as MYOB and Peachtree for
accounting and Multimedia programs like Flash and Fireworks.
