We oftentimes see a path for our future through the lens of our past experiences. If we think about it, traditional learning has been an important tool in our lives. It shapes us professionally, so why should we turn away from that? Furthermore, is online learning a proven effective strategy?
As much as we want to maintain interactive, teacher-student relationships within the classroom, is it necessary to preserve this tradition? Does it matter if we are learning in a classroom as opposed to learning virtually? Does a computer screen break that interactivity and ability to fully grasp what is being conveyed?
Online Learning is a phenomenon that has been ever evolving. Textbooks are now electronic, university lectures online, students now rely heavily on YouTube for extra help, and the list goes on. This transition to online learning in schools and private tutoring should be received similarly. This change is us evolving as a society. We still maintain teacher-student interaction and classroom communities that have been traditionally developed.
We should all see the importance of this change from traditional learning to online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is one way to slow the spread of the virus, consequently flattening the curve of reported cases. That is, If parents and students feel assured that their risks are minimized, students will focus more on learning.
What’s Next for E-Learning?
Online Learning is a change that we have to adapt to. Platforms like Rose Tutoring’s LearnSpeed Vision enables classroom interactivity.
It will take time to adapt to these changes, but it is necessary that we do so. To conclude, what if we have grown accustomed to online learning over the next 5 years, and in 2025 we are forced to revert to the traditional style of learning? Would there be a resistance to that change?
