I think this is very true. The computer does not have the ability to think or do any thing on its own. The command has to be given inorder for the computer to do somethink. Therefore the teacher is the one who is the 'magician' who is creative and with the ability to think.

I agree with this theory, because the computer is only the machine, and still needs someone to work with it. But the truth is that nowdays computer make our lives easier, and we can and we have a lot of materials that we can share with our students.

How comes a computer is all the magic? Computer is just a tool that we use and it responds to what we ask for. Sometimes, it also has a simple error that a kid at the age of less than 9 has.

computer is a magic box, but it's nothing without a teacher's mind conveying magical thoughts for students who are ready to put into action the magic they have received.

The computer is only a machine. The teacher is the brain. Without tutors, computers are useless stupid devices.

Computer provides teachers to enhance students' learning. Also, teachers can use computer to incoporate 'ict' in their teaching to make lessons more interesting and meaningful. Therefore,teacher is always significant in student learning.
