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 do not agree. They think that it is computers.
I think that the future of education is computers. First of all, computers have become a part of people's daily life. One can hardly find a sphere where computers are not used. Second, it is easier and faster to work with information when it is in a digital form. Students also are using computers more and more for education.
At the same time there are people who say that the future of education is books. When one reads books they can memorize the information better. People can touch a book and it feels substantial. It is also better for one's eye-sight because reading from a screen for a long time is not good for eyes.
Well, students use both books and computers now. Nevertheless, they are useing computers more often and memorize information as well as from printed books. Nowadays technology has advanced a lot and the queality of i-reader pages is no worse than printed books.
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 previous experience of technological developments, I strongly believe that the future of education is computers.
In conclusion, I would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight, books seem to be the future of education but in actual fact, computers have seriously integrated into people’s lives. Thus, I strongly believe that the future of education is computers.
