Technology is changing the world daily. Educators, especially vocational educators, must stay abreast of the changes in technology in order to be effective in teaching students a marketable skill. An area to which vocational educators should be particularly attuned is computer education. Computers have been used as educational aids for several years in math classes to perform repetitive calculations and in graphics demonstrations for science classes. A far more important consideration, however, may be the career aspect. Computer literacy is especially important for students in vocational agriculture programs, since computers are used throughout the agricultural sector, from the small family farms to the multi-national agricultural corporations.
