Computers are increasingly used in education. In which areas do you think are computers more important and in which areas are teachers more important?

“Yesterday’s fiction is today’s reality”. Computers have revolutionized all the aspects of human life especially education.
Besides
teachers, computers have
also
become an
indispensible
not to be dispensed with; essential
indispensable
part of education. They both are required for the holistic development of a person. Here, I am going to discuss the roles of both. Computers have completely modified the criteria of examinations through the introduction of online examinations, online debates and online
counseling
something that provides direction or advice as to a decision or course of action
counselling
. Computers are more important in those areas in which repetition is needed.
For example
, in elementary maths and elementary language learning.

The computer
A computer
can be programmed to provide answers to an endless number of simple questions. There are certain areas in which computers supersede teachers and vice versa.
For instance
- computers help us simplify the topics through the audio and visual aids like working models, videos etc.
Also they

can teach us for 24 hours in a day. Laptops offer a unique feature of portability and act as teachers even outside the

Moreover teachers

such
as terrorism, drug trafficking, global warming
etc
and
thus
broaden our field of knowledge. Computers
also
enable us to be well within the range of any
teacher
around the world.
Furthermore
, being human beings, teachers have a limited
knowledge whereas

knowledge, whereas
computers with a huge collection of e-books, reference books and dictionaries offer us a complete and thorough understanding of the subject.
Nevertheless
, the role of teachers cannot be refuted. They are the actual scholars in action.
Although
computers remain in our service for 24 hours a

is the quality time. A computer can efficiently check the

answers, but
the corrections can only be made by a
teacher
.
Moreover
, only a
teacher
can lend a practical hand to a student.
For example
- only a doctor can teach his students on how to perform a surgery? It cannot be taught by a computer in any way. There are other convincing evidences for teachers
such
as teachers help a student develop good communication skills and other social skills. The basic characters of a good human being are
also
inculcated by a
teacher
.
Furthermore
, a
teacher
also
acts as the true guide, friend and philosopher. These are the teachers which encourage a student when he fails in studies. To put in the nut-shell, I pen down concluding that, both computers and teachers are specialists in their own areas of education. They should be looked on as two angels supplementing each other for the betterment of our children.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
