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
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. 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
.
Additionally
, 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 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, educational benefits are clearly positive.
