Online students can be much more mobile learners. As long as the student has a laptop and Wi-Fi, he/she can attend school from anywhere. Online homeschoolers require a higher level of self-motivation and discipline. Although there are similarities between online homeschooling and traditional brick and mortar schooling, there are many differences including, but not limited to, the quality of the education, the opportunities for socialization, and the structure of daily life. Each family must consider these differences and choose which form of schooling best suits their needs.
In addition, People goes to college for many different reasons. The most important reason why I am going to college is to gain more knowledge and learn more skills exploring Variety of different things. General knowledge and skills are essential because most jobs require people to educated and possess excellence job- orientated skills such as public speaking, and critically thinking. Andrew Abbott made a great point in his speech “The Aims of Education Address’’ on September 26, 2002, that although we will forget certain knowledge they learned in college, they will retain cognitive skills. So therefore, a person should go to college to gain these cognitive skills in order find a job in the future.
This includes helping you get accustomed to the workload you will have in the career because sometimes you will have to stay up late to finish work and study. College will also give you exposure to special and expensive labs and technologies. It also gives you the basic information you need to know and understand. Without a higher education, I would not have those same resources. Lastly, college will help me learn how to be on my own.
Not to mention, it also talks about how fast that information is moving, and how fast things are growing which can make it hard to make sure that the things you learn in college will help you in your future. For instance, if you learn something that becomes out dated in college, you will have to re-learn it by the time you get out of college. This can really cause problems for the future, and not to mention make people question the usefulness of college when what they are learning there is supposed to be useful, but in the end may not be helpful at all. Overall, I am interested in going to college because it will help me build a path to my future, and hopefully lead me to success. However, even though I am sure that college is the right path for me, I am still worried about the transition and if I will be able to support myself, and learn everything that I need to in order to transition from a small town to a larger city.
We are in a culture where the digital and online world is thriving and growing. With a lot of students who can’t afford campus tuition or for the motivated people who work a job all day and find time to study online courses and complete the degree, would be a great supplement for not being able to go to classes on campus. I will share a few advantages of an online student rather than being a physical body in a seat on campus. Online courses give students the opportunity to plan their study time around the rest of their day, instead of the other way around. Students can study and work when they are at their peak energy, whether that’s early morning or
Student Ethics in the Digital Age Student ethics in the digital age are on a continuous decline and don’t seem to have a foreseeable change in the future. Students seem to have no grasp on the concept of cheating and the dangers it poses to them. One of the biggest examples of the degeneration of student ethics in the digital age is plagiarism and how the increase in availability of electronics and technology has given immoral students an easier way to cheat and have enticed them to do so more often. The internet has been a helpful tool for many years now, giving teachers and students alike the opportunity to find sources and collaborate with other people who are similarly oriented. However, it has also been a tool to cheat and steal ideas and works from other individuals, and has been exponentially more efficient than taking a trip to the library and finding something related to their topic.
Millennial’s are prone to buy things like computers, tablets, and phones because they grew up in the rise of the Internet age. They also are categorized by all of the student debt they have from attending college so they will not be as likely to be targeted for expensive cars and homes. Generation X are more focused on trips and experiences than physical products. They do not care for homes or cars as much as previous generations. They already have had all the devices and technology since a young age so they want to travel the world and live life, but only to be able to post it on their Instagram and Snap chat
Everyone encounters obstacles in every aspect of life. From school or work all the way down to friends and personal relationships. Each person has some kind of struggle, if not multiple, that they face each day. Obstacles help us grow, help us learn and help us figure out new ways to do things. As a college student, these struggles often become more apparent as one progresses throughout their program of study.
Critical thinking is an important skill in academics and life. It is difficult because it requires an active mind, and as a result there are many natural mental barriers to utilizing it. A time when critical thinking was challenging for me was when I was debating the necessity of going to college with a close friend. This was in sophomore year when we were beginning to seriously contemplate our future lives after high school. In this debate, I took the side that college was necessary in order to be successful in life; my friend believed there were other paths one could take and still achieve the same level of success through other avenues like trade schools or apprenticeships.
I also learned that it is not enough time for me to complete assignments on time in a way that I would be proud of the work that I have submitted. Despite my situation I completed all assignments in my online classes in which some did receive credit for accuracy/completion. Unfortunately, some were not accepted as late work or awarded any credit at all. I proved that I can complete all assignments and ensure that what I am submitting is carefully thought out, and of the highest quality that I am capable. My issue this past semester was the lack of time to complete assignments, and meeting the requirements of due dates; due to my grandfather 's circumstances and his everyday needs.
Easy access to a large collection of books and companionship used to be necessary to provide a good learning environment, but as time passes all of these things will be available online thus reducing the need for students to go to a physical college. The time required to go to a physical four year college is also a burden on many students. Instead of taking your classes online and having a large number of options on when you take your classes, students are forced to follow a set schedule of classes depending on when they are offered for a much larger cost than an online college. Four year colleges are losing their appeal as more and more things become available online. However, that is not the only issue with the current educational
The president strongly supports net neutrality and making laws for the internet to be open. The internet should be an affordable accessibility to everyone with the same speed for the same price. Without Net neutrality, it can make a big impact on students, educators and all users of the internet. In this generation schools all over the world have require assignments to be done using the internet. Yet there are many people out there that have no way of accessing to the internet and cannot afford it.
