    Posted by Falak on May 10, 2022 at 12:46 PM

    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.

    In today’s global era it is undebatable that digital access in the education world have opened multiple channels for common people to access more information making it easy for them to explore on any topic or segment. But somewhere I strongly believe that normal education system not only roots up the overall personality of a person at the same time curbs the sedentary lifestyle as well.

    As we all know, in traditional pedagogy interaction between students is more which in turn provides favorable environment to learn about other classmates. It not only encourages higher level of competence among students in fact the social environment that is created is perfect to built one’s character and personality. Better discipline and a sense of direction is what best served in regular teaching.

    At the same time, it has been seen that internet has provided mass outburst of information for common people. Students can work at their own pace which at many levels has helped them to do extensive research catering to more realistic examples available all over the net. Plus, students can study from any part of the world by simply using online platforms such as google classroom or zoom etc. if they have approach to computers & internet connection. However regardless to the above benefits, I still hold that regular schooling emphasis more on learning aspect and control the mobile way of living.

    In conclusion, admittedly electronic brains enlarge the center of information for Humans. On the other hand, I firmly stand with a viewpoint that education is not all about the subject knowledge but also about developing social and behavioral skills among students which strengthens over time.

      digital access in the education world have (has) opened

      But somewhere I strongly believe (whereas, some argue ) that normal education system not only roots up the overall personality of a person at the same time curbs the sedentary lifestyle as well. – paraphrasing has not been done properly.

      is perfect to built (build) one’s character

      topic sentence in B.P 1 needs to be more effective and indicate the view you are about to discuss, but this response is too generalized.

      No example found.

    It is argued that the technology based learning is currently dominating in the medium of education and has passive impact on the upcoming generations who is pursuing their career using this method. However, there are also many benefits and considering globalisation and revolutions in this field it has become necessity to incorporate computer based education in teaching plan. This essay agrees that learning through digital platform is more advantageous.

    Firstly, it is quite evident that digital platform has connected the people across the world and anyone can enrol themselves in any educational program to learn and get certified from myriad of options. For example, while seating in India the student can learn Spanish from a native Spanish speaker. Secondly, this system based modern method also gives an opportunity to revise the document or material and disseminate it swiftly which is not achievable in physical education method where calling out the hard copies is time consuming and unattainable task. For instance, still schools and colleges are struggling to revise or correct the contents on physical books.

    However, some disagree and feel that technology may mislead the learner and can provide the incorrect information. The half knowledge or improper knowledge can create a massive issues and can cause a huge loss. Because of such incidents and technology related crimes only government accredited bodies are allowed to facilitate the machine based education.

    Having discussed the argument and counter argument, I would like to infer that computer based learning is worthwhile. Although, the learner needs to take extra precautions and have to ensure that they follow the authenticated platforms.

      Body paragraph 2 has not been developed fully , since the question demands “both views along with your opinion” Hence, the answer is partially developed.

    The use of Internet and technology in study field has increased manifold and it has led to controversial opinions , where some people consider it as beneficial ,while others laid emphasis on its negative impact. Though in this essay both sides will be discussed, In my opinion it has contributed towards positive development by providing vast access to knowledge.

    Undoubtedly ,the use of computers has not only made education convenient but it also aids in acquiring more in-depth knowledge because numerous websites provides concept clarification by using innovative techniques, for an instance, due to corona pandemic when everything came to halt, it was because of online platform that students were able to attend classes , furthermore they may read few books to grasp facts but with the help of internet they can master worldwide facts and that too as per their convenience sitting at home.

    People who oppose the use of technology in education ,claims that it gave birth to sedentary lifestyle owing to the fact that students get more prone to wastage of time in form of playing games and getting hands on unrated sites together with addictive videos.For example , parents often complain that their children spend majority of time in playing games and watching videos , although they bought these gadgets to help them in their studies.

    My viewpoint is that using computers in education is imperative especially in this age of technology and of course it should be encouraged however its unfavourable outcomes could be tackled by some efforts such as using child lock on apps or by installing only useful softwares and applications.

    To conclude, little efforts can help us to fetch the great benefits of advanced automation by making studies more interesting and knowledgeable.
