A DISCUSSION ESSAY BY RAMIRO
Nowadays we are suffering the so called ‘internet revolution’ and the way that we used to have class is changing. Many schools are installing computer in their class-rooms but, is it good at all?
On the one hand, computers offer a lot of new learning posibilities in the class to teachers and students. For example you can find information about a topic or amplify the unit contents that you are studying. It is also a way for making clasess more interesting and entertaining because you can practise your knowledge about the unit with computer games or just surfing the net. Outside the class it helps too, because the email is a really good way to keep contact between teachers and students.
On the other hand, computers could make students be distracted in different ways, and a new research is showing that children nowadays are losing hand writing skills and that is no good either.
To sum up, I think that using a computer in the class is changing the education in a good way. However, we should not forget to use our pens and notebooks too.
