Online schooling is something that we are all facing at this very moment. Some people really dislike it and others are enjoying it a lot. Both sides have their reasons and it might be conflicting to explain.

“Online learning transcends the realm of higher education.” That argument is actually very valid, since when things are online many worries disappear and human error. Giving classes in person might reflect in sometimes getting a little bit held back, people get sick, pandemics happen, cars break, a lot of things can happen during presence learning that don’t necessarily happen during online. Online learning has the advantage of flexibility, saving money, fitting things into one’s schedule, and other advantages.

Some of the disadvantages are that it involves a lot more discipline for people, procrastination is a real thing after all. The student may miss opportunities such as, “the wholesome experience of graduating with a ‘class’”. That is something very important and it comes with a lot of memories. Students that do online learning miss out on opportunities such as prom, graduation and school clubs. By missing out on those some students might end up with certain difficulties at socializing. 

Online learning is not for everyone and the fact that we all have a taste of it emphasizes it a lot more.

    Hi Paula,
    I really enjoyed reading your post. I agree that everyone is responding differently to the online schooling. Some are excelling while others are taking a turn for the worse. It is disheartening that this year we will not be able to walk for graduation as a collective class. I researched for some more perspective from other students on online learning. Hopefully this article helps in the future, “https://er.educause.edu/blogs/2020/4/what-some-students-are-saying-about-the-switch-to-remote-teaching-and-learning

    Estimada Paula,
    Estoy muy de acuerdo con tu publicación “la educación en línea es buena o mala?” porque en estos momentos todos estamos pasando por unos momentos difíciles y nuestro plantel educativo ha decidido que nosotros los estudiantes estemos trabajando desde nuestra casa.
    Esta es una opción muy buena porque así, nosotros los estudiantes tenemos oportunidad de estar aprendiendo desde nuestras casas.
    Una frase que usted escribió que se destaca para mi es: “La educacion en linea es algo que todos enfrentamos en este mismo momento”. Creo que esto es muy importante de saber para que todos como alumnos tengamos en cuenta que debemos hacer nuestros trabajos que nos asignen. Para que no nos afecte el hecho de no asistir a la escuela como de costumbre.
    Gracias por tu escritura. Espero ver lo que escribes a continuación, porque tus publicaciones son de mucha importancia para nosotros los estudiantes. Y porque haci tambien nos damos cuenta que no somos los únicos que tenemos que tenemos que hacer nuestros trabajos en casa.
    Qué te parece a ti la educación en línea?
