Computers are being used more and more in education. Some say this is a positive trend, whereas others argue that it is leading to more negative consequences. Discuss both these views and give your opinion.

These days, the
use
of technological devices
play
Suggestion
is playing
an increasingly significant role in education. While some consider
this
an advantageous development, others believe it is more disadvantageous. I believe the
use
of computers and laptops in schooling is incredibly beneficial.
This
essay will discuss both points of view. On the one hand, there are many benefits the widespread
use
of laptops and Ipas’s bring to the classroom.
Firstly
, students are able to store
information
on their Ipad’s without the need for notebooks or stationary.
This
set up is cheaper for the student’s family as they do not need to spend a sum of money on school supplies.
Secondly
, with the advent of the internet
,
Accept space
,
information
is made accessible and readily available with a click of a button.
Websites
Suggestion
Web sites
like google gravely assist in the accessibility of knowledge.
On the other hand
, the benefits of computer usage in education do not come without drawbacks.
Although
laptops provide a means of indulgence in
information
, they
also
provide a means of over-indulgence in useless activities like
facebook
Suggestion
Facebook
and computer games.
This
can lead to these devices being a distraction in auditoriums. Studies show that for every 30
minute
Suggestion
minutes
spent in productivity online, 20 minutes are spent wasted on social media.
Finally
, unfortunately, computers can either be stolen or damaged. Instantly losing important
information
, a high risk to take for students in master program’s or finalists. In conclusion technology has taken the educational sector by storm, curbing the way for free accessible
information
and making studies easier for students. Despite
this
, they can be a source of distraction and can be stolen.
However
, as long as students responsibly
use
technology for the right reasons and ensure they take care of them, the
positives
Suggestion
positive
effects outweigh the negatives.
