Mahabodhi Paya Reviews & Ratings

  • Computers in the classroom              In recent years computers have become more useful to parents, teachers, and students because they have become faster and less expensive. Which is why computers can be found in most classrooms and can be useful to teachers and students. Many people feel that the time spent on computers could be spent on other things like one on one teaching or learning how to read and write. What people don't think about is how effective a computer could be to a child's education, and how computers can get students organized and willing to learn. In order to make computers more effective, teachers need to be trained on how to use computers, pick appropriate software, and get students involved in learning how to use the computer.              For years computers have been used in the classroom to help in the overall education of students. Since computers help so much there needs to be a way to include the use of computers in a student's everyday life. In an essay by Tom Loveless he includes a report conducted by the U.S. Department of Education that states, "the proportion of schools reporting the use of at least one computer expanded dramatically in the 1980's, from about 30% of schools in 1982 to over 95% in 1988 (Why aren't computers, 2".) Loveless also includes a report conducted by OTA that states "in 1995, schools possessed an estimate 5.8 million computers, roughly 5.8 million computers roughly one for every nine students (2).

  • This is one of the best place and must visit in your life! I think the people in Bagan is super friendly, they love to help, honest and feel peaceful. I met many people in different temple, and I chat with many child, they even feel so tired after asking money, I really l want to help them with some move. I recommend everyone come here, just take the scooter and hang around, even the small temple is beautiful, no need go to big one because it is so crowded, but you can visit of course. I recommend everyone come here! you feel the life is amazing.
