"Educating" In Education Is Like Reading, There Are So Many Broad Grey Areas

The standards of education have dramatically changed since the last year 2020 where the methods of meeting in a classroom with a teacher and having an interaction with other students have now been challenged and transformed to remote learning. 

According to Andy Lalwani's, The Most Popular education trends in 2021 is the fact that students will be able to learn faster which will make them smarter to be far more effective in determining the career path, however, teachers need to be more willing to accept not only the constant demands and growth of technology but how to use their classroom in a whole new way which includes helpful steps to make a positive learning environment educational.    

However, a virtual learning experience does not provide students with face-to-face interaction with their teachers so they will not be provided with a comprehensive view of the topic in question.

A remote class gives a connection to a classroom but the act of learning is highly questionable. Online school is bad because there is no interaction between student and teacher which will be detrimental to their future - I could only imagine their mental and emotional health. 

Remote learning is something that should not be mandated but is necessary in the mists of crisis however, in order for it to work seem to depend on how prepared a school district is prepared for and a teacher is properly prepared.

Remote learning is supposed to be an opportunity and not a normal way for a student to be able to learn and communicate with a professor while away from the classroom only when a student is in a situation where their safety is being threatened.

While remote learning can be beneficial in a short amount of time both professor and their student are not yet at ease with being at a distance from each other during a lesson. What will determine the success of a remote learning lesson is how the lesson will be structured, the what? and when?

A lot of people have been attracted to online education but there has been a lingering question of how effective online courses can be compared to the traditional standards of being in a classroom with a teacher.

The only true benefit it seems that online courses have are that they can be very helpful to a busy student since online classes' time management would be more flexible and furthermore, the students can stay at home rather than travel to classes however there is an idea also that any student who may be at risk of not being able to graduate with the rest of the class on time may be able to do their work by adding online classes to their busy schedules that they could not do in the classroom.

According to Cathy Earle's article The Good, Bad and Ethical issues of Online education, posted in a digital journal, Peats Media Inc, online classes can have a reprogrammed software that any student regardless of their skill can listen to a lesson and be tested without being carefully monitored by a supervisor who can either help a student who may not understand the material or how to complete a given assignment or worse may be cheating.

Most dangerously is the student's ability to be able to have discussions with another student or teacher in an actual classroom because they might forget how to interact with another person in a living environment.

It seems many parents are disappointed with remote learning because KMVT has revealed with the CEO of Imagine and Make, Rudy Silvia Mera that the transition from the traditional classroom to remote learning in one night had to leave gaps in education because not only do we have to make the students receptive to not only learning generally speaking but to be able to learn virtually by "visiting" other places rather than just reading a textbook.

Certainly, online learning has been a great part of college student's lives, it has been suggested that a blended lesson of both learning online and in the traditional standards of the classroom has no problems on a student's academic performance, however, it has been agreed that a student does not do well solely online classes.

And forgetting about having a good grade, a student's response may not be the same for those who have skills to be independent enough to take online classes such as determination and time management whereas any low-scoring students might procrastinate on an online session that will make them score even lower.

Personally, I hate remote learning because I am a traditionally taught student who learns quite slowly and needs one on one interactions.
