Study: PCs make kids dumber

Students who use computers frequently at school perform worse than their peers at maths and reading.

Those using computers several times a week performed "sizeably and statistically significantly worse" than those who used them less often.

I hate to say this but math basics are the root cause of this problem. In high school I was taught to do interpolation with paper and pencil. Do the Math means understanding the basic principles by practice and mental sweat.Using computers and calculators to get the answer by pressing a sequence of buttons and imputing the neccessary data is not knowledge. Its data entry.
