Traditional Classroom Learning – Advantage and Disadvantage
Traditional education has benefited many students. It is a fact that traditional education is the best mode of education but it also has some drawbacks which can be eliminated with proper planning and implementation on these policies.
ADVANTAGES OF CLASSROOM LEARNING AT ISBM UNIVERSITY:
- Active Learning and Participation of Students and teachers – Traditional education is an active mode of learning. Students learn quickly in the classroom. The one on one student teacher interaction helps students to actively learn the lessons delivered by the teacher. They help other students in study related matters. They ask questions from teachers if they have any problem in studies. Active participation is very essential for having clear understanding of the theories discussed in the classroom. On the educational side, students get a chance to participate in a lecture or class discussion physically.
- Recreational Activities – The regular recreational activities refresh students and they get some relief from the stress of studies. They enjoy and have fun due to these recreational activities. These activities are useful besides studies.
- Scheduled -The best part of traditional education is that it is scheduled and is properly carried out. The timetable and duration of lectures are all scheduled. This helps in making students disciplined and civilized.
- Favourable academic resumes – Employers and higher education institutions tend to prefer applicants who have more traditional coursework over those who have an extensive background of online classes. Because learning in person in the classroom offers a more in-depth perspective on any given curriculum, admissions officers and employers tend to view this experience more favourably.
- Training and Exposure – There are a lot of things, actual training and exposures that you can learn when you are attending a traditional school setting. Socializing alone can help improve your personality, confidence and maturity level.
- Social Development – When students are placed in a live classroom, they experience social interactions with peers and establish rapport with teachers. Helping children develop socially is an important aspect within the realm of their academic education. Such experiences are valuable in shaping students’ communication and listening skills, as well as growing and maturing emotionally.
- Spoon Feeding – Students are always dependent on their teachers in every study related matter. This makes them dependent on teachers. This trait suppresses the creative side of their personality and they never get to know their strengths.
- Favouritism – Teachers show favouritism, which destroys the personalities of the left out students. They feel incompetent and worth less. This attitude develops inferior feelings in other students. The teachers must treat all the students equally.
- Extracurricular Activities distort students – When there are more extracurricular activities, then students feel difficulty in concentrating on their studies. They are absorbed with the things affecting their educational performance. It is difficult for students to keep balance between studies and extracurricular activities.
- Negative Groups –There are chances that students get indulged in the negative groups. The negative group destroys student’s academics and his personality is also affected by associating with these negative groups.
- Costly -Traditional education is costly. The tuition fee is very high. Moreover, the course books and other school things are quite expensive.
- No Flexibility – Students must shape their personal schedules around school instead of the other way around. If plans unexpectedly change or an emergency comes up, the student cannot adjust the class schedule to turn in the work at a different time. If a scheduling conflict arises between work and school, students are forced to choose between their education and their income.
- Travel Considerations – With classroom learning, students must physically attend the courses to get credit for attendance. Those who must travel long distances to get to school must allot enough time to arrive punctually, particularly in instances where inclement weather is involved.
