Comment on the following statement:
|Having a computer at home will help their children to get a better education.|
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people say that having a computer at home will help their children to get a better education whereas others say that it will distract children from studying.
I think that computers can help children study better. First of all, there are a lot of educational programs that help people to learn more about the world. Secondly, you can use the Internet to research for useful information. Computers have also become a part of our lives, as well as our education.
At the same time there are people who say that children waste a lot of time playing computer games instead of reading books, socializing with their friends or doing some other outdoor activity.
In my opinion one should not confuse playing computer games with using computers for education. Computers are good machines that ease the process of obtaining information, doing complex calculations and much more. It’s difficult to imagine a scientist who can’t operate a computer.
In conclusion, I’d like to say that computers do help receive a better education. Almost anything can be used for good or bad. If one uses computers for educational purposes he gets in advantage over those who don’t.
