REMOTE LEARNING: HOW WOULD PARENTS FEEL ABOUT THEIR CHILDREN LEARNING FROM HOME

“Far too impersonal.”


at home

Parents in the past who home-schooled their children were seen as revolutionaries. But in today’s society, especially with the school shooting across the country, maybe more parents may want to consider home-schooling. But the traditional home-schooling is different than what I am thinking about. I am referring to a more remote classroom where the teacher is not physically at the school. More so, the teacher is at home, and the kid is in front of their computer at home. They communicate via web cam, and it would create a more digital means of learning. With no books and a paperless form of learning.

access to technology

When trying to create something this remote, you will need to make sure students are able to bring themselves near a computer. And not everyone has a computer, and those that do, don’t have reliable methods of learning in this new capacity. So what would happen is that those kids could see themselves, at no fault of their own, lag behind even worse than in the classroom. Because now you’re talking reliable internet access. Where even some of your best students could be negatively effected by such a move in education. Which leads into the next paragraph.

communication breakdown

As for the communication, there are a few issues that occur from the remote learning. When inside of a classroom, you are able to look into the students eyes and connect to them whereas you cant’s through a computer. But the main reason kids come to school, is where they start to develop means conflict resolution and dealing with others different themselves. You also have communication issues via the technology that will make it impossible for the teacher to do their jobs. So as for now, we will stick to the more traditional method. And that is sending your children off to school each and everyday.

BOOKS BE GONE: ARE WE SEEING A EXODIS OF BOOKS FROM SCHOOL

“From hardcover to touch screens.”


new school learning

When i go to the library I can’t help but to think about all the days my mother took my sisters and I as children. And now that digital has graced our presence or major online stores like Amazon, who needs the library. Any book you want is so cheap someone will sell for some low price somewhere. And now the same applies for schools in America. So how long will it take before we see books removed from schools? Students already use their devices for almost everything they do anyways. Why even use books anymore?

the feel of the pages

For those of us that are avid readers, there is something about flipping your hands though pages. But for a younger group of people, the pages don’t hold the real meaning, it’s the content. And with learning going digital, you can now incorporate video content in your books. Before the teacher used to book on a video in the class on the television. But now, you can buy a book with video built already inside. Now, the cost of these books are high, but as time progress and the cost to make them cheaper emerge, then you will see more in schools.

new degree requirements

As the digital takes hold and books are moved out, does this mean new requirements for educators as well? Because if school becomes a lot more technical, then you might see educators needing more specialized training to keep up with the change in times. Because for the longest the teachers had their books with all the answers inside. Now, with the introduction of the digital learning, the teacher no longer holds all the answers. You can now instantly fact check the teacher’s answers.
