Lately, the rumour that teachers are likely to be replaced by computers has been spread about. Nonetheless, will the future bring us computers as a way to teach? In the early 1960s, one of the world's first teaching machines was created. Apart from that, computers at that time were viewed as gigantic brains that would control our lives.
To begin with, computers are often used as an extra tool to teach and to learn, which teachers ought to get the most of; they allow us to learn at any point. In the latest years, technology is occupying most part of our lives, although teachers are needed as well as it is hard to work alone if you are easily distracted.
Secondly, we all are afraid of the possible loss of jobs not only in the education sector but also in the service one on account of the fast development of technology. Just as there have already been a decrease of teachers at schools, it is unlikely that if that is due to the lack of money, there won't either be enough sums of money to buy computers.
On balance, despite the fact that technology is becoming indispensable in our lives, teachers are essential as well. They give us motivation, they challenge and support us; something which a machine cannot make. However, it is also true that there will be a need for teachers with technological skills.
