  • Hello. Welcome to IELTS KILLER. The video series which gives you the best

  • ideas to use in your important IELTS Writing Essay

  • Here is today’s topic Computers are increasingly used in education

  • In which areas do you think Are computers more important

  • And in which areas are teachers more important?

  • Look at the keywords here: which areas - computers - more important

  • & which areas - teachers - more important Put in it another way, you have to decide

  • "which areas should a computer better be in charge of?"

  • & "which areas should teachers be the main instructors?"

  • I can say, computers can successfully teach basic knowledge

  • As you can see, computers help us simplify the topics

  • through audio & visual aids like videos & images. They are fantastic instructors which present

  • elementary mathematics, elementary language learning,

  • fundamental science & so on

  • These vivid, exciting & repetitive illustrations motivate students and enable them to memorize

  • basic facts easily & effortlessly. Besides, the computers can be programmed

  • to provide an endless number of simple questions, and as the students answers these questions,

  • the facts are learned & reinforced. Computers remaining in service 24/7

  • is another great benefit offered to learners b/c they can study & revise any time they

  • want at their own comfort.

  • But what about complex ideas?

  • In the learning & practice of more complicated subjects,

  • the computer alone is not adequate. Here are the reasons why:

  • First, a computer can evaluate an answer as right or wrong, but it cannot determine why.

  • Second, It cannot find out in what stage a student is making mistakes.

  • Third, It's unable to deal with tasks involving reasoning

  • because there are two many variables for a computer to handle successfully.

  • And fourth, It fails to handle students with extreme difficulties in learning

  • In this case, a human teacher is absolutely needed.

  • A real teacher can present important concepts in different ways.

  • He can determine and carefully explain in what stage in a math/physics/chemistry problem

  • the student has made an error.

  • So, in conclusion, the computer is a useful & essential tool

  • for practicing simple skills as they can stimulate motivation through audio-visual

  • aids & tirelessly repeat basic information.

  • However, it can never monitor students' grasp of concepts

  • nor effectively evaluate their reasoning. Therefore, the human teacher still remains

  • indispensable.
