Comment on the following statement:
| The future of education – books or computers. |
What is your opinion? Do you agree with this statement?
Some people think that the future of education is books, whereas others think that it is computers.
I think that the future of our education is computers. First of all, computers have become a part of our daily life. You can hardly find a sphere where they are not used. Second, it is easier and faster to work with information when it is in a digital form. Students also have been using computers more and more for education.
At the same time there are people who say that the future of education is books. When you read books you can memorize the information better. You can touch a book and it feels substantial. It is also better for your eye-sight because reading from a screen for a long time is not good for your eyes.
In my opinion these people have a point. Actually, students use both books and computers now. Nevertheless, they are useing computers more and more. Nowadays the average computer user is much younger than before. Even three or four-year-old children know how to use different gadgets including computers.
In conclusion, I would like to say that it is difficult to predict events with certainty. There will always be some possibilities that things can happen differently. However, judging by modern tendencies and taking into consideration the pervious experience of technological developments, I strongly believe that the future of education is computers.
