In this modern age of advanced technology, students will one day need not carry heavy school bags to attend school. They will only be required to study online using computers and notebooks. Would you think it is more effective to study online or at the traditionally classroom schools.

I think it's an excellent idea to go "E" in the school classroom and even during the examinations. It would be easier for both the students and the teachers. However, everything still has its drawback. The class couldn't be conducted during power failure or massive virus attack. Besides, the students can do other things with some hiding programs during the class. Therefore, we can only get the benefit of new technology if we are using it properly. Traditional way of study has its advantage as well. The most important is the students attitude and discipline. A school with the worst facilities can produce the top students in the country. In the other hand, a school with the best facilities can produce the worst student.

That really depends on the person. For me, I like studying independently. I usually pick things up pretty quick, so it saves me a lot of time to further work on things that I have trouble with when I don't have to spend so much time on things that I already know how to do. I'm good with working with deadlines and I've got enough discipline to work or study without needing someone to remind me. On the other hand, not everyone can do that. I know many people that are absolutely awful with deadlines and can never remember to turn their work in on time, so they need the reminders in the classroom setting. Some people also aren't good at independent studying and they like having the teacher in front of them able to ask questions from them and the people around them. So it really does depend on the sort of person.
