Computers are being used more and more in education. Some people say that this is a positive trend, while others argue that it is leading to negative consequences. Discuss both sides of this argument and then give your own opinion.

There
is
Suggestion
has been
an ever increasing use of
technology
,
such
as tablets and laptops, in the classroom. It is often argued that
this
is a positive development, whilst others disagree and think it will lead to adverse ramifications.
This
essay agrees that an increase in
technology
is beneficial to students and teachers.
This
essay will discuss both points of view. It is clear that the internet has provided students with access to more information than ever before.
Moreover
, learners have the ability to research and learn about any subject at the touch of a button. It is
therefore
agreed that
technology
is a very worthwhile tool for education. Wikipedia is a prime example, where students can simply type in any keyword and gain access to in-depth knowledge quickly and easily.
However
, many disagree and feel that
technology
deprives people of real human
interaction
. Human
interaction
teaches people valuable skills
such
as discourse, debate and empathy. Despite
this
, human
interaction
is still possible through the internet and
this
essay disagrees
technology
should be dismissed for
this
reason.
For instance
, Skype and Facebook make it possible for people to interact in ways that were never before possible. In conclusion, while the benefits of
technology
, particularly the internet, allow students to tap
in to
expresses motion to a point on, or within, something
into
limitless sources of information, some still feel that people should be wary of
this
new phenomenon and not allow it to curb face to face
interaction
.
However
, as long as we are careful to keep in mind the importance of human
interaction
in education, the educational benefits are clearly positive.
