For example, while attending regular school, everyday students are required to attend a teaching session in a classroom on certain days a week. There are teachers and classmates during the study time, and most of the times students have to sit and listen to lessons until the end of the day with some break time in between. Meanwhile in homeschooling session, there is no fixed schedule for studying
Laptops are one of the technologies which schools use it to help the education easier, so many schools in US allow students to bring it to school. The laptop can boost productivity, make research much easier, make taking note faster and make learning much interactive. But due to experiment, we found out that laptop a very big distraction which will affect your grade. In the experiments, all the participants have to attend a university level lecture and take note with laptop, but half of them were asked to do an
Students learn about new things and people in the society, not in school. Lines said that “[i]n simple societies the child slips naturally into active communication with parents and others — relatives, friends, neighbors.” (5). Home schooling helps students know the society earlier than the public school. Students communicate with others in the public places, so communication is not limited to the students’ parents, teachers or peers. Students in home-school will meet with more people working in different fields, which will help the students know common senses of life.
With that technology and wanting to learn, they will want to go out on their own and learn more about the subject they are learning. Technology in classrooms should be supplemental to the everyday classroom. The biggest reason is that there has been very little change in classroom for the past century. There have been some schools which have already largely
Throughout this unit, there have been many reasons addressed as to how and why students learn at a different pace according to their personal interests, life experiences, skills and current knowledge. This is the basis of Thompson’s ‘virtual schoolbag’ concept. Although the curriculum is created to teach all students the same lessons inside the classroom, it is imperative that educators understand the diversity of student learning, and how it will progress at different rates, depending on their past experiences in learning, both within and outside of the classroom. This can be involving friends, parents, doctors, shopkeepers –anyone who has been involved in the child’s life in some way. A huge part of understanding the student’s virtual schoolbag,
This can view that teacher use technology in the classroom can increase student motivation to learn the knowledge. Also, if student do all their homework assignments on the notebook computer, then there will be no more “I forgot the assignment at home.” excuses, unless they forget to bring their notebook
First, public school gives children the opportunity to interact with other students just by attending school every day. Karen Hylen is a therapist who assists homeschool students, and she points out that the absence of socialization that connects to homeschooling can cause students to feel
Online education has recently been offered as a means to alleviate students from the burden of having to come to a school which would mean having to endure all the traffic and possible typhoons. Preply is one of the well-known sites that provide quality English teachers online. They do not only teach English, but as well as other languages such as German, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, and Russian, among others. Students have the option to choose the teachers according to how they were rated by their previous students and their rate per hour. The difference in the teacher’s rate is based on a particular skill that a student would want to learn.
When new technologies are integrated into the classroom both teachers and students need to become accustomed to it before they can fully reap the benefits. Because of this, "teachers' first technology projects generate excitement but often little content learning. Often it takes a few years until teachers can use technology effectively in core subject areas (Goldman, Cole, & Syer, 1999)." Educators are taking a risk by placing computers in the classroom. According to Woronov (1994), computers themselves do not automatically change the nature of teaching and learning, but that it is the way the teachers use the technology that creates a conducive learning environment.
Sitting in the same desk everyday, learning almost the same thing everyday, seeing the same people everyday. The constant pattern of school just gets crazy. And when kids have after school activities, clubs, and duties after school, they will have less time for homework, studying, and living their lives. (Rachel D. Huffington Post). If we can reduce the length of school days, students wouldn't be faced with the constant boredom of classes and the nag of assignments.
