This is The Future - Schooling

Not A really subtle joke on social media, “They said no phones to school, now school is on the phone”

The World is currently facing a global catastrophe that is alarming millions of people worldwide. From the poorest of poor and the richest of the rich, the fear of this pandemic exist in everyone’s hearts, including yours and mine.

As the popular saying goes, “Knowledge is Power” the schools globally have become incredibly determined to continue with their classes. Which may be a torment, or a blessing based on what age group you belong to. However, this new form of chaos for the students has been a curse on most of them, thinking it is just another method to ruin ones Holiday. But, in the contrast, it is actually not just a curse for students but also a torture for them!

The House, a rather peaceful place is currently facing an invasion, that is causing certain students to lose their heads and others, a boon to kill time.

Being a student, my mind generally tends to look towards the negatives, because who enjoys waking up early in the morning to listen to molecules moving. Taking that into consideration, a general opinion is that Stay at Home schooling is helping students recover from the less sleep illusion that they have as online classes generally start an hour or two late.

But something that still kicks out students’ minds is that you still have to listen to molecules move. But school at home makes it so much easier for students as well as teachers to ease their daily routine’s timetable. Considering the total no. of school hours in a day to fall down and the no. of period decreasing, studies show that online schooling is by far the best method of teaching based on the likeness of the students and teachers.

From a live lecture where sitting in front of the screen is considered harmful, to continuously sitting in front of the screen for the same lecture, online schooling has not only brought in happiness for the attendees but also contradiction to the critics who say that online schools somewhat go against some of the important policies regular school teaches.

Necessary to say, online schools also, sometimes, adversely affect the teaching in terms of concentration and focus. With fathers screaming in the background and teachers’ whose voice sounds like a tube light starting, this kind of teaching can be not as effective as regular school. Network issues, input lag, and some students who keep their mic continuously on, are some problems teachers face today.

Another honorable mention Is the interaction between the peers. Certain Applications have special features allowing students to personally chat with each other without others knowing, while others have Emojis and GIFs included in chats. Nevertheless, this is a really great way to teach.

But it all comes down to this, if the school comes home, will it be better than people going school. Principals, education ministers and even teachers are heating up all over the world debating on whether to continue contemporary schooling or stick to the internet.

But for that, we have to wait for God alone knows how long. Certain people have understood the duration of this pandemic and decided to quarrel about the current situation, Is School at home efficient?

As a student, I have to agree. Just like a society where both people and government follow rules prospers, a school which is liked by both teachers as well as my fellow pupils, definitely shall be efficient. Overlooking the dark side, this method is widely appreciated all over the globe because of its easy, fast and amazing way to share knowledge, as certain ones, just learn lying on the bed, while others, just have a calculator running in the background of mathematics class knowing that the person is just a teacher and not an FBI Agent.

I was not really excited while hearing school come home. But it has way more advantages than you think. Schedule fixation is one of the feathers on online schools’ hat. You get feedback faster and receive knowledge quicker. Schools that are not very highly advanced now have easier access to high end education systems such as PowerPoint presentations while we speak and recording features which help you refer to classes later for a recap. It just feels like attending and institution like Byju’s, but it’s just not a monologue.

Also, particular students find it easier to complete assignments online and others just simply enjoy sitting in front of the screen. On the other hand, traditional going to school methods, although being more effective in learning, is easily put off by the benefits of online schooling.

Contemporary school, a structure looking similar to jail for students and houses of blessing for parents, is replaced mainly because it is not just that nice to students. There you just don’t have smartboards, chat facilities, interested teachers and attentive students. The reason why this is by far the most prevailing is because it connects happiness between people who war in regular life. No more boring bus journeys, no more climbing stairs and no more heavy backpacks.

And if you are a fan of normal school in classroom, it would be hard to accept these but trust me because it gives freedom, not to text whatever you want or say anything, but to just free students of extra activities to learn.

School coming home isn’t as bad as everyone feels, it’s just another less powerful yet effective method to coach students for the future. Looking to future, we are definitely going to see the end of this miraculous invention as the virus runs away but think about it. It’s not a curse, not a torment but a real blessing no matter what age group you belong to.

If you have a far-sighted perception, you are going to see this come back in the future by 2060, where students like me yet again get to sit in front of the screen to listen a simple lecture. And that’s what school teaches us, prepare for the future.

This is the Future, and the Future Is Now!
