In the article, “Which is a better alternative: Online School vs. Traditional School?” I learned about the pros and cons that come with online school and which alternative can be better for certain students. Due to the Coronavirus pandemic schools and other major facilities have been forced to close down and people are encouraged to be sheltered in place. With this, students and teachers have switched over to home-based learning. Although home-based learning may be a better alternative for some students, not everyone is able to learn from home without guidance and help from teachers. Some students find it more difficult because they don’t have easy access to tutoring or physical representations of how to do their assignments.
I believe that home based learning is not for everyone. As of March 17th my school has also switched over to home based learning and this makes it difficult for me to not only learn but also get my work done. I enjoyed going to school because I saw it as a way to take my mind off of things and learn. I was also able to ask questions and ask for help, although home based learning is not a terrible idea, and good for those who can’t attend school. Being a procrastinator, I also have a hard time managing my time and actually getting my assignments done and turned in. I also think that it’s overwhelming for students to receive a significant amount of work all at once.
Which do you like best, home based learning or traditional school?
