Topic: As computers are being used more and more in education, there will be soon no role for teachers in the classroom.
Although computers is a great source of information and an incredible tool which is widely used in education, I believe that they can not replace the role of teachers in the classroom for some reasons mentioned below.
For the students, educational computer programmes may be more stimulating than other forms of teaching. Computer provides students with colorful imagines and interesting sounds, and lots of academic materials, which may encourage them to study harder. Also pupils like using computer to do their research and make a perfect paper. However, they should not depend on the computer if they aim to be properly educated. There are too many sources of information in the Internet, including both bad and good ones. Students may waste their valuable time searching unreliable websites.
On the other hand, teachers can help them to choose what materials they should use. Given some experiences, students are also told how to study effectively. For example, my teacher always says ‘practice makes perfect’, and that we should practise learning everyday. Computer can not give advices and studying methods as it is not clever enough to know our education level.
Moreover, teachers stimulate student's curiosity and creativity by giving questions and instruct them to the answers. Students have to think carefully and hand in their answers, whereas using a computer, they may see the answers before reading the question, which is an useless way to learn.
To sum up, computer may be a wonderful machine, but it can not take the place of the teacher who teach us to be creative, curious and effective as a human being can be.
