According to a new study by the Department of Education, about 90 percent of kids ages five to 17 use computers. Over half of those kids use the internet.

The rise in computer usage is partly because there's more availability of computers in schools and libraries. Kids are using computers mostly for school research, email and computer games. The study says that even by age five, one of every five kids is computer literate.
