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
in schools and universities. It is often opinionated that
this
is a good development, whilst others believe it will bring drawbacks.
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.
This
has given learners 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.
For example
, Wikipedia is a primary tool nowadays to gain access to in-depth knowledge by simply typing in any keywords 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 and empathy. Without these soft skills, many
people
find it difficult to become successful in work and their personal lives. 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 online in ways that were never before possible. In conclusion, while
technology
benefits
people
by providing a limitless amount of information, some still feel that
people
should be wary of its lack of 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.
