题目：Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Teaching is harder than it was in the past.
With the explosion of knowledge and information, teaching seems to be a quite complicated and confusing task compared with teaching in the past. However, I firmly believe that teaching is much easier than the past thanks to the significant innovations in technology and progressive changes in attitudes towards teaching.
First and foremost, science and technologies bring revolutions to the teaching methods and ways. For instance, the tools available in the past are print books, which put a limit on both the velocity and the breadth of teaching. While nowadays, with the assistance of slides, e-books and Wikipedia, teachers have more possibility to expand and deep the knowledge and make the boring courses more vivid. What’s more, internet provides teachers with multinational tools to instruct students all around the world. It’s not hard to image that an Egyptian rural child would utilize coursera to learn advanced math classes given by professors in harvard, as long as he or she is interested in the classes. That means, teaching overcomes the obstructions, such as culture, ideology and even wars-all the walled-in conflicts and narrow conceptions are overwhelmed, broadening the way for teaching. With the development of science and technologies, teaching become easier and far-reaching.
Secondly, governments’ supports lead better conditions for teachers and the prosperity of education industry. Taking China as an example, professors now are not only provided by government with inviting warfare, such as considerable and stable salaries and comfortable teaching conditions for research and teaching, but also enjoying highly respected social status. On the contrary, teachers in the ancient China, is often the career chose by the losers in the imperial examination. Their income were often salted meat or fresh vegetables and the amount of their income depended on their teaching quality which is rather unstable. Lack of the fine education systems and the authorities’ supports, most of the ancient Chinese teachers led relatively poor lives.
To sum up, advance of science and technology and supports from governments revolutionizes the teaching ways, turning teaching easier and easier.
