Nowadays computer education is compulsory for learners in most schools. Do you think this is necessary or will children acquire these skills naturally from their daily interaction with technology everywhere?
Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Write at least 250 words.
Tremendous changes occurred in the field of computer technology, which transformed it as an essential area of study and research, and this made people think that its inclusion in the school curriculum is mandatory. I too do not think very differently.
As the primary focus of the education has changed from knowledge acquisition to career acquisition, most schools too started focusing to equip their students as the best group of elements, who can survive today’s challenges in the job market. To be precise, the job market is undergoing revolutionized changes, with more openings in the sector of computer technology. Hence, it is quite natural that modern schools started assuming the responsibility to meet these soaring demands, and they have realized that this should be done in a professional way at an educational set up.
The second reason why I opine so is because of the need for an early procurement of this knowledge. As every walk of human life has established an inseparable relation with computer technology, the necessity of learning the skills related to that as early as possible should be seen as a matter of utmost importance. Finally, at schools, computer education is done in a systematic way as per the changing demands in the day to day life.
There exists a considerable proportion of school students who are seen skillful in this technology even they had not any formal education at their schools. The daily exposure of this technology has enabled them to achieve this goal. However, I believe a professional approach in learning can bring out better results.
To conclude, though there are instances in which computer education is made possible without having a formal exposure, I tend to believe that making it a mandatory subject at school is far better.
