Computers are widely used in education and somepeople think teachers are not playing an importantrole in classroom. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Computer, the most exciting and significantinvention in 20 century, will reshape our lives andour world. As a result, some people proclaim thatcomputers should be involved into our classroom,and replace the roles of human teachers. However, Icannot agree with their point of view.
Admittedly, as the useful tools, computers canbecome the optimum assistants for human teachers in the classroom. To beginning, vividpictures shown on screen can motivate students’ interest and curiosity dramatically.Moreover, the combination of computers and Internet can provide children the abundantinformation. Although computers enjoy considerable merits, they cannot compare with humanteachers for two main reasons.
Among countless factors which influence my inclination, there is a most conspicuous one:computers are not as qualified as human teachers in academic fields. As we all know,students can get the final result of a mathematic question under the help of computers,however, they are still confused on the whole computing process. By contrast, our humanteachers’ performance is much better in those cases. They not only can teach students howto analyze and compute the question, but also can remind them what are the possible errorsthat they may meet. Thus, human teachers are more adequate than computers in academicaspect.
The second advantage of human teachers is they can guide students to deal with somepsychological problems that they meet in schools. In China, sometimes, teachers even burdenmany responsibilities that students’ parents have. For example, as for the student withrebellious spirit, the important duty for teachers is to prevent the student from campusviolence, even crime. Obviously, computers cannot do that.
In summary, from what has been discussed above, we may safely arrive at the conclusionthat the positions of human teachers are unshakable, and computers cannot take the places ofthem.
