Face to Face Teaching VS E-Learning
May 28, 2011 3:31am CST
With the worldwide web phenomena, education system has advanced irreversibly as various technologies are more and more applied in the classrooms. Access to quality education is no longer an issue like before. With E-learning programs available mothers with babies can continue nurturing her child while continuing her study without living her home. sounds like good news BUT not for people who prefers the traditional way of teaching where teacher and learner relationship is more personal because of real time face to face interaction. What do you think? If you were to study again, which style of learning do you prefer?

Sounds weird, but even though I use computers and internet almost for everything, I still prefer the good old face-to-face. I think it's a matter of interation between people. A good teacher will make you understand and remember almost everything you're interested in and at least the basic concepts of subjects you're not very fond of. This doesn't mean e-learning is something bad. I think it's a great new way of learning new things, and we should encourage this as technology improves continuously; however, it should only be a way to add something to our knowledge, and not something to begin with. Once you have understood how to study (and I think a teacher is the only one who can help you doing this) you can learn everything you want, either by reading a book, a manual or by distance learning. In conclusion, I don't think e-learning will become the only way of learning in the future (as many say); I think it will become a valuable alternative for those who wish to learn new things but are unable to follow a face-to-face class.

Thank you for your valuable input to the topic. I'm taking technology and learning class and your opinion will be taken as part of our discussion in class. You have mentioned good points here that are worth considering for further discussion. Thank you. Apology: I noticed some typos in my first post. "Living" should be LEAVING.
