'How could a man be a teacher?'says Margie.But we do have human teachers.Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of having a computer as a teacher as compared to a human teacher.
This question is from The Fun They Had by Isaac Asimov.
Given below are a few points that will help you frame a complete answer.
Computer cannot ever replace a teacher. Few points which you might want to know in favour of your topic are:
Conventional yet true, imparting of knowledge by a teacher is always more productive and efficient than learning through a computer.
The best that computer and Internet can do is provide us with the information. However, until and unless someone teaches us the same it won't be the same. Audio visual effects and three dimensional level teaching by a teacher is always more helpful than the computers.
Computers can never make people learn or understand anything. Also, Internet cannot solve our doubts and queries like a teacher.
Books and guidance from teachers are always more productive than Internet access.
Internet and computers can never coach us to become a nice human being which teachers can. The overall development of personality as well as the ethical growth of a student lies in the hands of a teacher and not with computers.
