Yes, I think if the teacher can guide the students to learn things on the computer, they can improve themselves by learning things on the internet. But, I am worried that some students are involved too much time in playing games. Many children in China spend too much time in playing computer games, and less time in their studies. It really made me worried about them.

We are all wondering what is the best way to motive students. Here is a short video with middle school students that could offer a suggestion for younger and older students, too.
