But on the other hand, computers have reduced the creativity of students because students have become over dependent on them. For example, a simple mathematics equation cannot be solved without the aid of a calculator, also some students who bring their computers to class, tend to misuse them, by using them for non-academic purposes during class hours. Most of them spend most of their time watching funny videos on the internet, chatting with friends on social networks and play non-educational games during class time. This has resulted in poor performance in the class and failure of final year exams.

Another significant disadvantage to using the Internet to complete schoolwork is that students may be tempted to cheat. Because the Internet is so vast, students might be tempted to cut and paste answers to homework problems from the Internet or copy information from Web sites and claim it as their own, feeling as if there is no way their teachers will ever find out. Some students may not even understand that such cutting, pasting or copying is wrong. But in addition to being wrong, such behavior, whether students are caught or not, also makes it harder for students to learn the material, which will make it more difficult for them to grasp key concepts going forward.
