Online learning vs Physical Classroom Learning
Nowadays, due to this pandemic virus going around the world, the schools, colleges and malls are being shut down. But thanks to the lockdown, the students are attending and experiencing the virtual classes online. Online and distance learning has steadily grown in popularity among all schools and college students and also helped many students to learn new skills without going to school or college. But due to the pandemic, it has left no option even for the tender ages from pre-school.
But due to the rise of the internet and online learning, there have been several side effects. There are always two sides of a coin. For some individuals, an online class is more appropriate, while for others classroom training is the preferred delivery method. ASPAM IIS, one of the best Schools in Sharjah, is conducting online classes for every grade. Let us compare the two methods.
A benefit of taking online courses is that they offer value and leaning at home and students don’t have to travel physically from one place to another. This saves time and energy both.
Also apart from the leaning part, all the classes and the assignments are easily available on a single click, because all lectures are recorded and assignments are pre-uploaded already, which can help students and parents to track the course.
Due to less noise, it helps students to concentrate and stay focused. If there is less distraction than this will be a great opportunity for students to learn quickly.
One easy-to-overlook factor when it comes to traditional learning is that students can travel to school and can meet their friends and teachers. This helps a student to interact and learn something new every day out of the book.
When a student goes to school and attends class, there will be discipline and a habit developed. This habit help student to grow in life such as waking up early in the morning, which is a good and healthy habit.
Apart from sitting in one place, continually students get to do some kinds of activities which help their body and brain to function properly.
In the case of online versus traditional learning, there is no right or wrong way of studying. Much of it comes down to personal preference and knowing how you learn the best. As per now, due to this coronavirus, students are experiencing this kind of education and they do miss traditional learning. But there will be a time where once everything will get normal, then students again going to miss this current way of education.
