Online vs Face-to-face learning

download (2)I do think that there have been mayor changes in the traditional learning environment and some students surely gain from online learning because they have the ability to learn at their own pace. However, I do believe that that face to face learning especially in certain subjects is fundamental. Amongst other advantages I find that social interaction between the students themselves will help them to gain fundamental skills not just those needed academically but others which they will require throughout their lifetime.

    Yes I agree with your view on the matter. I also believe that face to face learning is unreplacable as students would have less motivation to work if they always receive their lessons and work online.

      Yes, as you said they may be less motivated to learn. However, the use of technology in education can lead to more innovative ideas, methodologies and practices used by teachers. That’s why teachers should encourage the students’ interest so as to avoid that they don’t do their work.

    I believe that a mixture of online and face to face learning would be the perfect method in today`s world for both the student and the teacher. However, as Grefory Ferenstein said in the other blog I posted, the future is unpredictable!!
