วันก่อนพี่มีโอกาสได้คุยกับผู้ปกครองของน้องท่านหนึ่งในโรงเรียน ท่านได้ให้ความเห็นเกี่ยวกับปัญหาของน้องที่ติดคอมพิวเตอร์งอมแงม ทำให้นอนดึกแล้วมีผลเสียต่อการเรียน วันนี้พี่ถือโอกาสนำเอาหัวข้อในการสอบ IELTS ใน Task ที่ 2 ที่เกี่ยวข้องกับเรื่องนี้โดยตรงมาฝากน้องๆกันนะคะ
Using a computer every day can have more negative than positive effects on your children. Do you agree or disagree?
It is undeniable that computer is one of the most important parts in modern society. Some think that future generations can be affected by computers in bad ways more than good ways if they use those daily. Personally, I entirely disagree with this opinion. Nonetheless, I realize that everyone thinks differently.
On the one side of the argument, there are some people who feel that children tend to be addicted to computers easily when they use those electronic devices every day. Firstly, they suggest that playing computers wastes children’s time. For instance, children who use computer playing game very evening would not have enough time to review their lessons and do their homework. Hence, they would probably get a low grade. Moreover, if children always use computers they would have less time to spend with their family, for example watching television and having dinner together. Eventually, they consider that this could result in a poor family’s relationship.
On the other side of the argument, I personally disagree with this viewpoint because although it is possible that my offspring would be influenced by computer in negative ways I would be able to control their computer usage so that they would get more beneficial than disadvantageous outcome. Initially, I would guide them to use computers in broaden knowledge, namely doing exercises via e-learning programmer, searching for academic information and preparing their lessons through an online encyclopedia. Apart from getting smarter, the benefits of these helpful usages could be excellent learning skills and a wider perspective. Therefore, a chance of getting a degree would increase and when my children become adults there is a good opportunity that they would get a good job. Fortunately, this would result in earning high salary. Furthermore, though my descendant would live far away from me we could contact each other every day via computers. To illustrate, if my kids study abroad I would be able to call them by using chatting programmers, including Skype and Line. In spite of a long distance call, family’s member would get closer and have a good connection.
As one can see from reading the information presented, I still believe that if my offspring use a computer every day in appropriate way they would experience positive more than negative results.
