Literacy skills improved five times more quickly than average among children in primary schools who used computers properly, according to a team of researchers based at Newcastle University.
Numeracy skills improved almost three times more quickly than average, the study of 20 school classes showed.
"The findings . . . may reduce fears among some parents that the use of computers by schools hinders the reading and writing development of pupils," the study said.
