Face to Face or Online Education : Which one is more of a bane than a boon?
FACE TO FACE OR ONLINE EDUCATION : WHICH ONE IS MORE OF A BANE THAN A BOON? Muhammad Izzudin Bin Shahrom 193040 Bachelor of Arts (English Literature) Nowadays, education is important to our normal life because the more knowledge we have, the more powerful one person can be. No one can deny the importance of education in this era and no matter what happens, people should continue to learn. During this modernisation age, people are introduced to a new mode of education called online education or also known as e-Learning. Now the question arises, face to face education or online education? This has been a hot issue for many years but I strongly believe face to face education as the best type of education as we can get motivation from the information sender or teachers, manage our time well and get supports from peers. Studies have been made and it is said that online education is a great alternative to gain knowledge (Norman, 2016). However it contains many flaws compared to face to face education. One of them is it provides students with information from the web that it is not valid and may not be proven by the experts or for short; the information might not be true at all. Face to face education on the other hand provides more valid information about certain subjects as the educators are professional. Furthermore, thousands of students sometimes failed to join or interact in the group discussions because they can be distracted at any time. Moreover, some people might think online education is more convenient but in fact it is not because it requires good internet connection which is not necessarily available in every place. I stand with my point which is face to face education is better than online education. Face to face education can give us emotional support from educators. We believe that motivation, both intrinsic and extrinsic, is a key factor in the success of students at all stages of their education, and teachers can play a pivotal role in providing and encouraging that motivation in their students (OnlineCourses, 2013). Of course, that is much easier said than done, as all students are motivated differently and it takes time and a lot of effort to learn to get a classroom full of kids enthusiastic about learning, working hard, and pushing themselves to excel but it is possible with the help of professional teachers which cannot be found through online learning. Therefore, face to face education can motivate students to learn better compared to online education. Secondly, I believe that face to face education is better than online education as it encourages students to manage their time properly. Studying at school requires students to be punctual as it follows the school rules. Every student has to follow the time allocated by the school which normally starts at 7.30 am and ends at 1.30 pm. In this way, students can study in a systematic way. As time is very important, teachers will encourage their students to do their assignments on time and to avoid procrastination. According to (CollegeLearning, 2015), teachers will ask students to do time table to plan their work properly like putting down notes on the things that they have to do and need to be submitted. Their time will be well managed resulting in less pressure and good grades. Finally, face to face education promotes respectful and supportive relationships, avoid the bullying epidemic, and build the attributes of positive peer-to-peer interactions (Riester-Wood, 2015). Another aspect of peer to peer relationships is the instructional avenues for promoting more peer interactions, such as cooperative learning, pair learning, and other collaborative learning opportunities that are easily imbedded into a good lesson design. You will find several tools that provide for more frequent peer interactions around instructional tasks. As students are mostly teenagers, friends play an important role to keep the positive vibes around them. Online education however promotes anonymous friendships which may lead to cyber bullying and depression. In a nutshell, after deeper thinking and research, I still stand with my point which is face to face education is better than online education as it provides motivation from educators, promotes time management and attributes to positive peer-to-peer interactions. We cannot deny the fact that online education has advantages as well but it is not enough to outstand the fact that face to face education is still the best option to gain knowledge.
