A traditional classroom goes way back to as we can remember. It is the most reliable way to teach students to help engage, interact and participate with full zeal, zest, and enthusiasm.
Ever since the pandemic broke out, the world took its turn as every sector had to face challenges together with the education department. Schools were closed, the mode of teaching shifted from in-person to online.
In a real classroom, the teacher can interact with a wide range of students through her ideas and emotions. Virtual learning, however, depicts the teacher’s attention to the only student who is speaking and limits her to have a good discussion.
If you have ever stumbled upon this quote :
What you hear, you forget ;
What you see, you remember ;
What you do, you understand.
It clearly describes how virtual learning is. In-person classes help you understand the topic well due to spontaneous and random interactions via questions or opinions.
In developing countries, the issue of internet access has arisen due to the pandemic. In Pakistan, 65% of the population resides in rural areas with minimal or no internet access. Academic activities of students living in such areas have almost or entirely halted, another reason why in-person classrooms are at an advantage.
Virtual classes can never replace the traditional classroom environment because they display the true spirit of education. Almost everything is the same in virtual school, the teachers, the students, the courses: the only thing that is missing is the ‘atmosphere.’
