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 an ever-increasing use of machinery,
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 automation 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 machinery is a very worthwhile tool for education.
In addition
, 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 synergy. Human interaction teaches people valuable skills
such
as discourse, debate and empathy. Despite
this
, human communication is still possible through the internet and
this
essay disagrees machinery 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.
Moreover
, the benefits of automation, particularly the internet, allow students to tap into limitless sources of information, some still feel that people should be wary of
this
new phenomena and not allow it to curb face to face cooperation.
However
, as long as we are careful to keep in mind the importance of human synergy in education, the educational benefits are clearly positive.

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
