Schools are no longer necessary because children can get so much information available through the internet, and they can study just as well at home. To what extent do agree or disagree?
On the millennium of technological advances, the computer has profound impact on a numerous field of people’s lives. Recently, there is heated debate over the issue whether the children should be allowed to study at home with the computers instead of going to school. I totally disagree with this statement due to these two following reasons.
On the one hand, there is no point in denying that school always constitutes necessary and indispensable to one’s school live. Firstly, when studying at school, students are supplied with a great number of qualified teachers who authorize the class and impose the regulations which beyond all disputes instruct students to be more disciplined in their study. Whereas, if students are permitted to be seft-taught at home, especially those, their parents have to work outside, it seems relatively dangerous and dubious, for them to utilize the computers themselves without the strict supervision. Secondly, even assuming some students are computer-literate, teachers are still of paramount important because they are capable of creating for their students the friendly and optimal environment, experimenting new and splendid methods of teaching, giving the students feedback, which undoubtedly accelerate the students’ speed of gaining knowledge. Finally, learning at school assist the children’s social skills and build up teamwork because they have to work in team with others and cooperation is acquired.
On the other hand, the internet is inappropriate as a bizarre tool for children to educate themselves at home. The lack of face-to-face interaction and prestigious websites serving truly for studying purpose are the reasons for this doubt. Even though there are still some sites providing interactive learning but they just predominantly form with multiple choice questions and answers. While at school, the teachers actively tailor the studying strategies to satisfy the needs of students, the internet is considered to have less mobility in terms of alteration. Moreover, when studying online, it will have no substitute for mutual communication in which students exchange knowledge with teachers and their counterparts. Furthermore, the development of the capability to sift necessary information available online only comes later when students enter higher or enrol on a vocational course, it can open up the possibility for them playing online rather than devote to studying.
In conclusion, the above-mentioned facts give people the glimpse about the disadvantages of allowing students to use computer to study without going to school. Although there are several excellent studying websites, school remain imperative, adhere to one’s live and future, giving the students structure framework which nothing can be taken place.
