As computers are being used more and more in education, there will be soon no role of teachers in the class room.

To what extent do you agree or disagree?

————————————-

I don’t agree that because computers are being used more and more in education computers can replace teachers in class room and education. In this essay I shall highlight the role of a teacher in education.

A teacher is the one who educates the students. He teaches new things to the student which they have never known before. Whereas a computer gives information the said information may or may not be perceived correctly by students. Needless to say wrong perception may be disastrous and detrimental.

Teachers’ role is not limited to merely teaching syllabus but teachers are the main character builders and personality builders of the students. Character and Personality are paramount importance to any individual. In absence of a well developed Personality and sound character the most highly educated person miserably fails in the life. Furthermore with the help of computers students can revise the learned lessons and subjects. Also more information can be obtained on a particular subject matter. Studies on computers are hassle free and relatively less time consuming.

When a student does not perform up to the marks, teachers are questioned and they are answerable. When somebody is answerable quality of education is bound to be superior. In case a student studies with his or her computer and fails to perform up to the marks, computer is not anyway answerable. Student is the master of his own. Even teachers have teachers it is the strongest evidence of importance of teachers in education. Without teachers education system can not function.

In conclusion computers can no way replace teachers.

 Some people say that computers have made life easier and more convenient. Other people say that computers have made life more complex and stressful. What is your opinion? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

————————————–

Indeed the life has become easier and convenient because of computerization I opine.

In this essay we will look at some of the technological breakthroughs made today while simultaneously exploring how these advancements are impacting our culture, our relationships and our individual lives.

Most people welcome computers that have improved the ways we work and we play. Technology is advancing at a speed that is far beyond our imagination. Now computers are most important in our lives. Students come across computers both at home and at school. Governments worldwide have introduced computers and internet connections in classrooms. All businesses are fully taken over and performed by our computers only. Say banking, education, air booking, rail booking, road booking, buying selling, renting, trading in equity market, tender inquiries and what not. Even marriages are also fixed on internet. I am reminded of an old saying is that has rotated by 180 degrees now, that is——

“Marriages Are Made In Heaven” now modified as “Marriages Are Made On Internet”.

In nutshell, there are some ill effects of this adventure of computerization, like we totally miss personal human touch. We are now more introverts. We tend to remain sedentary that may give rise to obesity, weight gain blood pressure etc. Also one suffers from spine related problems like back ache, muscular pains etc those are the professional hazards. But then it is a general rule that “Adventure is what makes life worth living. Every occupation has its aches and pains. The rich have to worry about their wealth. But, if there is a choice between remaining poor and worry-free, the selection is obvious. It is better to be wealthy and worried than to be worry-free and poor.” So we welcome computerization.

We are becoming increasingly dependent on computers. They are used in business, hospitals, crime detection and even to fly planes. What things will they be used for in future? Is this dependence on computers a good thing or should we be more suspicious of their benefits? (Write minimum 250 Words)

———————————————

Computer is a relatively new invention. Computers were invented about fifty years ago. However they came in extensive use some thirty years back. Personal Computers were put in use some times in the year 1980. In this short spell computers made tremendous impact on our lives. We are now so much dependent on computers that life without computers can’t be imagined. Imagine the amount of chaos that would occur if Railway Ticket Booking, Air Booking, Banking computers fails. Or they are removed world wide.

Now computers are available in the note book form known as lap tops that are portable and can be carried any where. Even Palmtops are also available now. None the less the handy cell phones now have numerous features of computers. Computers are used in Human health monitoring, Air traffic run and control, Banking, Rail & Air booking etc.

With the time tremendous development has been made in the field of computers. We must be fully conversant with the latest technological developments, modus operandi, operation and maintenance of the computers and systems. This calls for a high degree of knowledge and skills. If we do not have adequate knowledge of computer systems a day may come when system collapses and we may not be able to restore it and we may be rendered totally helpless.

In a nutshell, we are totally dependent on computers; we may not become suspicious about its benefits. However we must have a foresightedness and preparedness to over power contingencies that we may have to face due to random system failure.

We must “Hope For The Best and Prepare For The Worst”.

When people need to complain about a product or poor service, some prefer to complain in writing and others prefer to complain in person. Which way do you prefer? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.

——————————————————————————–

 I prefer to complain in person as far as possible. Because I strongly believe that face to face communication is always better and most effective. Face-to-face communication remains one of the fundamental needs to business success. Consistent, daily face-to-face communication promotes more than just good feelings; it also promotes effective and collaborative teamwork.” However whether to complain in person or by writing shall largely depend upon the distance of vendor’s location from our location. Should the distance be too large involving lot of time and cost of journey, it is wiser to either talk on telephone or send an email.

Furthermore face to face or by writing shall also depend upon the cost of product or service. The product may be like a mixer, camera, washing machine, or a refrigerator other way round the product may be an automobile and alike, furthermore it could be huge Power Generation Turbines, High Tension Electrical Panels or Control Panels with Switch Gears and alike involving a huge capital. For those products and services involving large capital costs it is preferable to meet and negotiate about any shortcomings or complaints rather than tossing with papers and delaying the project. On the other hand for items of domestic day to day use from local nearby vendors meet and sort out would be better depending upon the distance criteria.

In conclusion, face-to-face communication has worked for millions of years. The best communication occurs when a speaker and a listener are in the same room. “Eye contact, facial expressions, body movements, space, time, distance, appearance—all these nonverbal clues influence the way the message is interpreted, by the receiver. However it shall depend upon the distance and cost criteria as mentioned in above paragraphs. Nonetheless Face to face is preferable.
