Computersare widely used in education and somepeople think teachers are not playing animportantrole in classroom. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Along withthe mass use of computer technology ineducation circles, we are delighted towitness theuncountable conveniences be brought by computer.Some people evenargue that teacher will not beimportant in classroom any more. Isthisreasonable? Personal speaking, I oppose holdingsuch a ridiculousconclusion.
In the firstplace, the feature of teaching defines teachers as an essential part ineducation. Itis well known that teaching is a process of mutual-communication:firstly, teachersimpart/initiate knowledge or ideas to students, then studentsshould promptly transfer theirfeedback to teachers, moreover, teachers willgive students the final interpretation accordingto their specific requirement.Besides, teachers also can (teach students in accordance of theiraptitude). Incontrast, what computers can do is merely to display materials whichhavealready stored in their EMS memory or mechanically execute operator’s commands. We actuallycan notimage what our education will being if computers substitute teachers totally.
As toanother reason, it seems that teacher’s role as a supervisor is more and more overt.Computer is indeed acontroversy, it not only can be an efficient education assistant, but alsocanbecome an addiction which includes too much violent and (pornographicpropaganda).
Youngstersdo not mature fully in psychology, therefore, without teachers' supervision,manychildren would spend hours playing computer games or surfing unhealthywebsites, which areregarded as a waste of valuable time and intelligence,instead of trying to have a goodcommand of knowledge and skills.
We neverdeny that computers are absolutely an available educationimplements,furthermore, the combination of teacher and computer technology willgreatly improve oureducation quality. However, from all of the grounds ofargument mentioned above, we cansafely draw a conclusion that teacher will notbe replaced by computer in the classroom.
