Student or Learner
In the future, students may have the choice of studying at home by using technology such as computers or televisions or of studying at traditional schools. Which would you prefer? Use reasons and specific details to explain your choice.
Technology has been increasingly used throughout the world in all walks of life and this is very apparent in the field of education today. Some believe that one can get education with the use of technology like computers or televisions while sitting at home in secure environment, whereas some think that traditional schooling provides interaction and motivation which are very important for getting education.
It is believed by some people that one can get education with the aid of technology like computers, televisions or DVD players. They can do it while sitting at home in a safer environment, in the presence of their parents. At the same time they can save a handsome amount of money and time being consumed in travelling to the school. These are the reasons many people tend towards this point of view.
On the other hand, many people still believe in traditional schooling to get proper education. In school one can have education with the help of technology and a human teacher under one roof. Interaction is a very important aspect to learn something from someone and in a school one can interact with teachers and classmates as well. Sometimes one needs motivation especially in case of younger students to learn effectively which again one can get from teachers and friends in school. Machines have very limited capacity to interact with and to motivate. That explains why a lot of people believe in traditional schooling.
In conclusion it is very clear that in this modern age it must be preferred to go to school to get education by qualified teachers with the help of latest technology.
