IELTS Writing Task 2

 


It is generally acknowledged that families are now not as close as they used to be.

Give some reasons why this change has happened and suggest how families could be brought closer together.

 

It is a widely held perception that individuals do not spend time with family members like before. This essay aims to identify the sources of this problem and offer possible solutions.  

 

On the basis of research findings over the last few decades, financial constrains have made both parents work and made it difficult for them to get together after a hard long day and spend any time with their children and even with themselves being overtired. The second source of this problem concerns with the use of technology. It is an irrefutable fact that technology has kept family members apart considerably and made them indoor types to stay busy with sedentary and passive activities. A salient example is the use of the cellphone which is widely seen in ever one’s hands nowadays. Unfortunately a vast majority of people would rather work with their cellphone rather than talk to others. This issue has led family members to live in isolation.

 

Admittedly, there are two main solutions to this critical problem. Firstly, individuals have to lessen the amount of workload to enjoy more time with family members and friends. In so doing, they would get together to share more feelings and emotions. Further, though, and equally important is to allot particular time during the day to use their cellphones so that they can dedicate more time being with their family members and intimate friends. I wish people realize the enjoyment of spending time with others and appreciate the importance of that.

 

By way of conclusion, given that multiple factors contribute to individuals’ isolation due to workload as well as technology role in human’s life, based on family counselors’ advice, it is recommended, regarding the above-mentioned solutions, individuals pay exclusive attention to the value of family gatherings which demands further consideration.

The Advantages of Distance Learning written by Dr.Arian Karimi

 

مزایای آموزش از راه دور از دیدگاه دکتر آرین کریمی

 

According to the U.S. Department of Education's National Forum on Education Statistics, virtual education is now part of the planning agenda of most organizations concerned with education and training. The quality of distance learning has greatly improved in the past few years, as both students and educators have become more comfortable with the technology, and as stories of best practices have been shared and duplicated.

 

طبق آمارهای بدست آمده ازانجمن آموزش و پرورش ایالات متحده، امروزه اموزش مجازی جزو برنامه کاری بسیاری از موسسات مربوطه قرار گرفته است.  طی چند سال گذشته،  کیفیت این نوع از آموزش رشد بسزایی داشته زیرا اولاً مدرسین و دانشجویان با فناوری ارتباط برقرار کرده‌اند (راحتتر میباشند) و ثانیاً بهترین تمارین دردسترس عموم (از طریق اینترنت) قرار گرفته می شود.

 

While quality has increased substantially (and while many inferior programs have failed), it is still prudent to verify that the distance learning organization is fully accredited by the appropriate agencies. One valuable resource is Accredited Online Colleges.org. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality. Accreditation in the United States involves non-governmental entities as well as governmental agencies.

 

با وجود اینکه کیفیت آموزش افزایش یافته است( برنامه های کم کیفیت تر با شکست مواجه شده اند )، اما هنوز سازمان های مربوطه مدارک موسسات آموزش از راه دور را معتبر نمی دانند. سایت AccreditedOnlineColleges.Org  یک مرجع مفید و با ارزش به حساب می آید. هدف از مدارک معتبر تضمین آن است که آموزش ارائه شده توسط موسسات آموزش عالی سطح قابل قبولی از کیفیت را برآورده می کند. در ایالات متحده، ارائه این گونه از مدارک در نهادهای خصوصی و سازمانهای  دولتی صورت می پذیرد.

 

Distance learning features a number of advantages, particularly for non-U.S. students seeking an accredited U.S. degree. Perhaps the most relevant benefit involves the luxury of remaining in your home country while studying -- and consequently avoiding the inconvenience of applying for a student visa to study in the United States. Other advantages include:

 

یادگیری از راه دور(مجازی) مزایای زیادی دارد ؛ به ویژه  برای دانشجویان غیر امریکایی که در پی کسب یک مدرک آمریکایی معتبر هستند. شاید مزیت بزرگ آن، این است که با وجود اینکه در شهر خود هستید، اما  به صورت آنلاین مشغول به تحصیل می باشید. درنتیجه، از تقاضا برای ویزای دانشجویی به منظور تحصیل در آمریکا جلوگیری می‌کنید. مزایای دیگر آن شامل:

 

Accessibility for those living away from the training center

 

No waste of time or other resources in transport, commuting to a central location for each class

Flexibility to study in any convenient location with an Internet connection

 

قابلیت دسترسی برای کسانی که از مراکز آموزشی دور هستند:

 

هیچ اتلاف وقت (یا هزینه) در حمل و نقل و همچنین رفت و آمد روزانه به محل آموزشی نیست.

امکان مطالعه در محل دلخواه با متصل شدن به اینترنت

 

Self-paced learning:

 

Quickly browse materials you have already mastered, and concentrate time and effort in areas containing new information and / or skillsStudy materials at a personal speed and intensity, without having to wait for slower pace of the average classroom

 

Flexibility to join conversations in the bulletin board discussion areas at any hour, and to review your classmates' comments since the previous visit.

 

Just-in-time learning; more opportunities to study the most current material available

Flexibility for those with irregular work schedules

Accessibility for those with restricted mobility (e.g., handicapped, injured, elderly)

Accessibility for those with family responsibilities (e.g., parents with young children at home)

 

 یادگیری خود گام:

 

می توانید دروسی را که قبلا آموخته اید، به سرعت در اینترنت جستجو کنید و بر روی مطالب جدید بیشتر وقت بگذارید ( تلاش کنید).

 دروس را با سرعت و توان شخصی مطالعه می نماید؛ بی آن که لازم باشد برای زبان آموزان کندتر صبر نمایید.

امکان گفت و گو در چت های گروهی و بازدید از نظرات همکلاسی ها

سیستم JiTT، امکان بیشتری را برای مطالعه دروس ارائه می‌دهد

قابلیت استفاده برای کسانی که برنامه کاری مشخصی ندارند.

قابلیت دسترسی برای کسانی که در راه رفتن، مشکل و محدودیت دارند:  معلولین، آسیب دیدگان سوانح مختلف و سالمندان

قابلیت دسترسی برای کسانی که مسئولیت های خانوادگی برعهده دارند: والدینی که با فرزندان خود زندگی می کنند.

 

Recent research has shown that the most significant factor helping students to succeed -- or not -- in Web-based classes has been their ability to manage time. The more successful students reported spending 2 to 3 hours regularly each week for each hour of credit for a class. For example, a 4-hour credit class required a minimum of at least 8 to 12 hours of work each week of the semester to complete all requirements.

 

مطالعات اخیر نشان می دهد که مهمترین عاملی که باعث کسب موفقیت (یا عدم موفقیت) دانشجویان دراین گونه کلاس‌ها میشود، توانایی در مدیریت زمان است . دانشجویان درس خوان تر میگویند هفته ای ۲ الی ۳ ساعت (بطور مداوم) هر واحد درسی زمان می‌گذارند. به طور مثال، یک کلاس ۴ واحدی به هفته ای حداقل ۸ تا ۱۲ ساعت مطالعه در طول ترم نیاز دارد تا بتوان تمام دروس را با قبولی (نمره کامل) پشت سر گذاشت.

 

Experts strongly recommend that you devise a typical weekly schedule so that you will have a general guide for allocating appropriate time to study.

 

کارشناسان شدیداً توصیه می‌کنند که  برای خود برنامه هفتگی تنظیم نمایید زیرا یک راهنمای جامع برای صرف زمان مناسب به منظور مطالعه دروس خواهید داشت.

 

COMPUTER-ASSISTED LANGUAGE LEARNING:

AN OVERVIEW 

By.....Bamrung Torat

"….Technology is not a panacea or a magic bullet that suddenly transforms all learning. The effectiveness of educational technology depends on how it is employed to meet educational goals for particular kinds of students in specific language learning environments…." (Oxford and others, 1998: 13)

 

آموزش زبان به کمک کامپیوتر:

نظر کلی:

فناوری مانند داروی معجزه آسایی عمل نمیکد که به یک باره تمام علوم را دگرگون سازد. تاثیر فناوری آموزشی وابسته به آن است که آن چگونه برای رسیدن به اهداف آموزشی برای گروه خاصی از دانشجویان در محیط های آموزشی زبان به کار گرفته شود.

 

INTRODUCTION

 

The main purpose of this resource booklet is to give Thai university English language teachers a brief overview of the development of Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) and how computers have been used or can be used for English language teaching (ELT) and learning. Its focus is on the history of CALL, uses of CALL in English language teaching, and advantages and limitations of CALL.

 

The chapter is divided into 5 sections: (1) Definition of CALL, (2) History of CALL Development, (4) Uses of CALL in English Language Teaching, (5) Advantages and Limitations of CALL, and (6) Tips in using CALL. A CALL bibliography (printed materials and online resources), as a resource for interested ELT teachers, is available at the end of the volume.

 

مقدمه:

هدف اصلی این کتابچه این است که یک نگاه کلی و مختصر درارتباط با پیدایش CALL و چگونگی استفاده از کامپیوتر در فرایند تدریس زبان خارجی به اساتید دانشگاه Thai ارائه دهد. تمرکز این کتابچه بر روی تاریخچه CALL، به کارگیری آن در فرایند تدریس زبان و مزایا و معایب آن می باشد. فصل این کتابچه  دارای ۵ بخش می باشد.

1:  تعریف CALL

2: تاریخچه پیدایش CALL

3: به کارگیری آن در فرایند تدریس زبان

4: مزایا و معایب

5: نکات یادگیری استفاده از CALL

 

کتابنامه CALL (به صورت چاپی و آنلاین) به عنوان منبعی برای اساتید مشتاق وعلاقمند در انتهای کتاب قابل رویت و دسترسی است.

 

Definition of CALL

Computer-Assisted Language Learning (CALL) is defined as "the search for and study of applications of the computer in language teaching and learning." (Levy, 1997: 1) The main aim of CALL is to find ways for using computers for the purpose of teaching and learning the language. More specifically, CALL is the use of computer technologies that promote educational learning, including word processing, presentation packages, guided drill and practice, tutor, simulation, problem solving, games, multimedia CD-ROM, and internet applications such as e-mail, chat and the World Wide Web (WWW) for language learning purposes. There are several terms associated with CALL. CALL is variously known as Computer-Aided Language Learning (CALL), Computer-Assisted Language Instruction (CALI) and Computer-Enhanced Language Learning (CELL). The first two terms generally refer to computer applications in language learning and teaching, while CELL implies using CALL in a self-access environment (Hoven, 1999). 

 

 از نگاه میخائیل لوی، CALL به معنای جستجو و مطالعه بر روی برنامه های کامپیوتر در فرآیند آموزش و تدریس زبان می باشد. هدف اصلیCALL، یافتن راه هایی به منظور به کارگیری کامپیوترها برای اهداف آموزش و تدریس زبان است. به بیان تخصصی تر، CALL  به معنای به کارگیری فناوری های کامپیوتری میباشد که سطح یادگیری را افزایش میدهد. آن شامل واژه پردازی، نرم افزارpresentation، ناظر آموزشی (معلم)، حل مسئله، شبیه ساز، بازی های کامپیوتری، سی دی، برنامه های اینترنتی مانند ایمیل، چت و WWW که همه اینها، برای اهداف یادگیری زبان میباشند. چند اصطلاح دیگر نیز که مرتبط با CALL باشد، موجود است. آن با چند شکل CALI، CELL و CALL شناخته می شود.  دو اصطلاح اول به برنامه‌های کامپیوتری اشاره دارد، ولی CELL بر بهره گیری ازCALL  در یک محیط self-access (روشی است که در آن  دانشجویان کتب و منابع درسی خود را انتخاب کرده و بر اساس آن پیش می روند) تاکید دارد.

 

Why CALL?

The reasons why ELT teachers use CALL:

 

    • Computers can do some of the work of the teacher and provide great assistance to the learner even without the presence of the teacher (Pennington and Steven, 1992).
    • New technologies have seen computers become smaller, faster, and easier for the teacher to use (Evy, 1997). At present, well-designed CALL software is readily available to the teacher.
    • Technologies allow computers to do multimedia applications, incorporating video, sound, and text, and this capacity allows the learner to interact with both the program and other learners. (Felix, 1998).
    • The computer offers great flexibility for class scheduling and pacing of individual learning, choosing activities and content to suit individual learning styles. (Oxford and others, 1998)

 

چرا CALL:

دلایل استفاده مدرسین زبان انگلیسی ازCALL:

کامپیوترها می‌توانند برخی از کارهای اساتید را انجام دهند. آنها علاوه بر آن، می‌توانند دانشجویان را یاری دهند (حتی بدون حضوراساتید).

فناوری های جدید باعث شده است که کامپیوترها کوچکتر، سریعتر وآسانتربرای استفاده (اساتید) قرار گیرند. در حال حاضر، برنامه CALL برای اساتید قابل دسترس می باشد.

فناوری های جدید به کامپیوتر ها این امکان را می دهد که برنامه‌های چند رسانه ای ومتون، ویدیوها، و صدا های ترکیبی را به کار برند. این کار به زبان آموزان این امکان را می دهد که هم با برنامه وهم با زبان آموزان دیگردر تعامل قرار گیرند.

کامپیوترها برای هر شخصی، برنامه مخصوص به همان شخص را پیشنهاد می دهند.

 

HISTORY OF CALL DEVELOPMENT

 

This section gives a brief history of CALL development. The review aims at showing, chronologically, the development of CALL over the last 30 years by linking to important technological developments, theories of learning and language teaching approaches. Some key examples of CALL programs and projects developed in this period are also shown.

 

Warschauer (1996) divides CALL into phases of development as follows: Behavioristic CALL, Communicative CALL, Integrative CALL (Multimedia CD-ROM), and Integrative CALL (Internet). The beginning of a new phase does not necessary mean the end of programs and methods of the previous phase, rather the old is included within the new (Warschauer, 1996).

 

The historical development of CALL is summarized in the following table: 

 

تاریخچه پیدایش CALL:

 

در این بخش به تاریخچه پیدایش CALL به طور مختصر اشاره شده است.این بخش قصد دارد که پیدایش آن را (طی ۳۰ سال اخیر) به واسطه پیوند توسعه فناوری،  نظریه های یادگیری و رویکردهای  تدریس زبان نشان دهد. برخی نمونه های کلیدی و موفق برنامه های توسعه یافته آن،  در اینجا اشاره می شود. Warschauer آن را به مراحل پیدایش زیرتقسیم می نماید: CALL رفتارگرایی، ارتباطی، یکپارچه (سی دی و پس از آن اینترنت). شروع یک مرحله جدید لزوماً به معنای اتمام مرحله پیشین نیست؛ بلکه بدین معناست که مرحله پیشین در مرحله جدیدتر  از آن اجرا می شود.

 

USES OF CALL IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE TEACHING

 

This section gives a brief overview of how CALL has been used or can be used for the purpose of language learning and teaching. The use of CALL can be divided as follows: (1) Computer as Drill and Practice, (2) Computer as Tutor (3) Computer as Simulation / Problem Solving, (4) Computer as Game, (5) Computer as Tool for ELT teachers and learners, and (6) Applications of Internet for ELT.

 

 موارد استفاده از CALL در تدریس زبان انگلیسی:

 

این بخش یک نگاه کلی و اجمالی نسبت به استفاده ازCALL برای اهداف یادگیری و آموزش زبان ارائه می دهد. موارد استفاده از آن می‌تواند به موارد زیر تقسیم گردد.

1: تمارین

2: ناظر آموزشی (معلم)

3: شبیه ساز/ حل مسائل

4: بازی های کامپیوتری

5: مورد استفاده برای مدرسین و دانشجویان

6: برنامه های اینترنتی برای مدرسین

ACADEMIC LISTENING TEST Tips by Dr.Arian Karimi

The IELTS Academic listening test is one area where teachers cannot help students as much as they can in other areas. The skill of listening is one that is developed by practice and there is not much a teacher can say to improve a student’s ability at it. What we can do is to give you some hints for doing the test and also show you the type of question that you will come up against when you do the test. After that, as much practice as possible is the way to improve. This practice can be doing actual IELTS practice tests or by doing any form of listening in English.

 

The IELTS Academic listening test is approximately 40 minutes in length and there are four sections each with a separate listening passage. In each section there are 10 questions making 40 in all. Sections 1 and 2 are based on social survival in an English speaking country and sections 3 and 4 are based on a more educational and training orientation. The actual tape lasts for about 30 minutes and then you have 10 minutes at the end of the listening in order to transfer your answers to the answer paper.

 

Section 1   Here you will listen to a conversation between 2 people. The conversation is divided into 2 parts. You have to answer 10 questions based on what you hear. At the start of section 1 you will have an example read out to you and then explained. This is then repeated when the listening starts properly.

 

Section 2   Here you will hear a monologue though it may include a second speaker asking questions in order to stimulate the monologue. The monologue is divided into 2 parts. You have to answer 10 questions based on what you hear.

 

Section 3   Here you will listen to a conversation between 2, 3 or 4 people. The conversation is divided into 2 parts. You have to answer 10 questions based on what you hear.

 

Section 4   Here you will hear a monologue though it may include a second speaker asking questions in order to stimulate the monologue. The monologue is divided into 2 parts. You have to answer 10 questions based on what you hear.

 

The main problem that candidates have with the IELTS Academic listening test is that the listening tape is only played once. Therefore you have to be quite quick and very alert in order to pick up the answers, write them down and be ready for the next answer. Another area where students have problems is that they are used to listening to a live speaker in front of them when they can look at the lips and the body movements. IELTS candidates listen to a tape and this is not a natural skill. As I said above, you have to get as much practice with. IELTS practice tests at this skill as possible in order to maximise your chances of getting a good band.

 

Marking

There are 40 questions in the IELTS Academic Listening Test and 1 mark is awarded for each correct answer. There are no half marks. Your final mark out of 40 is then converted to a band from 1 – 9 using a converting table and this band is then averaged with the other 3 parts of the test to give your final IELTS band. Band scores for the listening test and the final band are given as a whole band or a half band. The converting table used to change your mark out of 40 to the band out of 9 changes with every test. However, below you can see a rough guide that you can use to assess your practice. There is no guarantee that you will perform the same in the real test itself as the test converters vary with each test, but it can be a guide to your progress with the IELTS practice tests that you use.

IELTS Academic Listening Test Question Types

In the IELTS Academic listening test the same types of question come up every time so it will help you to know what these types are. They are as follows:

  • multiple choice
  • short answer
  • sentence completion
  • notes/summary/diagram/flow chart/table completion
  • labeling a diagram with numbered parts
  • classification
  • matching lists/phrases

 

These question types can all be found in IELTS practice tests including the ones in IELTS Help Now IELTS practice tests question papers. As usual, practice is the key. Listening to tapes and doing the practice questions is the best possible preparation you can have.

 

Practice for The IELTS Academic Listening Test

There are different types of practice that you can do to improve your listening skills for the IELTS exam. The best, as I’ve said before, is to practice on specific IELTS practice tests. After that though there are other things. Listening to the radio is excellent as it is the same skill as the IELTS listening test – listening to a voice without the speaker(s) being present. Listening to the TV is good too but you can see the speaker. You could try turning your back to the TV as this will make it more realistic. Listening to the news on TV and radio is probably the best practice you could do with these two media. You can also see English speaking films at the cinema or at home on TV or video. All these things will develop your listening skills. In the end though, using good quality IELTS practice tests is the best strategy.

 

IELTS Academic Listening Test Strategies

There isn’t much you can do but there some things. First of all, you get time to read the questions at the start of each section and mid-way in each section. Use this time (usually 20 seconds) wisely. You should know in advance all the questions before you hear the tape. At the end of the sections you also get some time to check your answers. Use this time to check through and then turn ahead to read the next questions in advance.

 

When you read the questions you can usually predict some of the types of answer that will come. For example, in section 1, if you can see that the test is asking for a telephone number, then you know you’ll be listening out for numbers and the word telephone. In the later sections this becomes more complicated but the same technique can be used. Think about this when you are practising so you can develop this skill.

 

Tips and Ideas about the IELTS Academic Listening Test

As in all IELTS tests, the questions get harder as it goes on. You will see from your practice that the types of listening and questions that you encounter in Section 1 are more difficult in Section 2 and so on. This does not mean that by Section 4 they are impossible but they are more demanding linguistically.

 

Beware of some questions which require a number (i.e.: a telephone number) or some letters (i.e.: a postcode) as sometimes what you think is the answer will be read out only for the speaker to correct him or her self and then say the correct answer.

 

An important tip is to answer all the questions as you hear them; don’t wait until later. Sometimes people in these tests hear the correct answer but decide to remember the answer and write it down later so they can wait for the next answer. This I feel is a mistake. Firstly, people will very often forget this answer and secondly, if you follow this method, you will have to remember up to 5 or 6 answers in a row before you can write them down. Then you’ll forget even more.

 

As I said above, at the end of the test you have 10 minutes extra to transfer your answers from the question paper to the answer paper. Some people put their answers directly onto the answer paper. I feel it’s better to write the answers on the question paper and use the 10 minutes given at the end for the transfer. Writing the answers on the question paper allows you to keep your concentration on the questions and, if you make a mistake, it’s not so difficult to correct.

 

One area that students don’t like is that, in the listening test, good grammar and spelling are important. The grammar part is not so important as you can’t make many grammar errors in 3 words (the maximum you use in the listening test) but, if you spell something wrong, it will be marked as wrong. People think, quite rightly in my opinion, that the listening should test whether you understand what you heard and not how you spell something but these are the rules. So, be careful about your spelling!

 

If the question asks for no more than 3 words, use no more than 3 words. Writing 4 words is wrong. You won’t be asked to do it in 3 words or less unless it is possible so don’t worry; it can always be done.

 

Don’t panic if you miss an answer. If it has really gone, then it is history. Worrying and panicking is only going to make you miss another one. One miss is probably not going to destroy your mark so calm down and listen for the next one. Sometimes you think you have missed it but you are mistaken. If you are calm and keep listening, maybe the answer will come or even be repeated.

 

Never leave a question unanswered; especially if it is only an A,B,C,D question or something similar. Guess if you really don’t know. There are no marks taken away for wrong answers or even stupid answers. So, have a go! Logic, general knowledge or just luck might give you the right answer!

 

Anyway, work hard and good luck with the IELTS Academic Listening Test! I hope that this tutorial has helped you. Below are links to the other free IELTS Academic Tutorials. We strongly recommend that you practice for the tests with good IELTS practice tests. Of course, we would like you to use ours as we believe ours are excellent and the cheapest on the market, but any good IELTS practice tests will do.

Why should I take part in online IELTS and TOEFL courses offered by Dr.Arian Karimi

The term of online was not very appealing in 1970s and 1080s just like an airplane in the beginning of the 20th century. Internet was in development stage in early 1990s compared to now and the conventional wisdom about the online courses was different in 1990s than today. We are in the 21st century where everything is possible and acceptable. For example, students are studying at home/work place utilizing computer which is called online schooling/learning.

 

There are several factors contributing the growth of online enrollment including the following:

 

Younger people are choosing non-traditional education to start and advancing in their careers while completing and furthering their education.

Severe recession of 2008 has created poor economic situations where people are upgrading/changing their career through online educational/training programs.

 

Online method of education can be a highly effective alternative method of education for the students who are matured, self-disciplined and motivated, well organized and having high degree of time management skills, but it is an inappropriate learning environment for more dependent learners and has difficulty assuming responsibilities required by the online courses.

 

The Boston-based consulting firm Eduventures, Inc.(2006) found that about half of institutions and more than 60 percent of employers generally accept the high quality of online learning, but students’ perceptions differ. Only about 33 percent of prospective online students said that they perceive the quality of online education to be “as good as or better than” face-to-face education. At the same time, 36 percent of prospective students surveyed cited concern about employers’ acceptance of online education as a reason for their reluctance to enroll in online courses.

Varieties of online educational methods have been developed, but the potential students should consider some identifiable factors common to all types before enrolling in any course/program,in partcular,in an IELTS or TOEFL course. Generally all these factors are not applicable to every online learning situation, but they do apply to most. You as an IELTS / TOEFL test taker should more closely examine the online programs that most interest you and be sure that the program fits your life, career needs and job.

 

As an IELTS instructor, the approach to this new paradigm might be with varying degree of enthusiasm and/or concern. I ususally ask myself a few questions:

Are you optimistic or skeptical about Online learning?
Are you interested in knowing how delivering courses online can improve your teaching and offer excellent learning opportunities for your students?
Do you want to know what you will be up against as you plan and deliver your classes online?

Synergy: High level of dynamic interaction between the instructor and students as well as among the students themselves. Ideas and resources are shared, and continuous synergy will be generated through the learning process as each individual contributes to the course discussions and comments on classmates’ work.


Creative teaching: In the adult education class with the interactive learning environment may contribute to self-direction and critical thinking. Especially the nature of the semi-autonomous and self-directed world of the virtual classroom makes innovative and creative approaches to instruction even more important.

 

In a nutshell:

 

Obviously, there are advantages and disadvantages to every type of learning environment.

 

Students have to analyze both the pros and cons factors which contribute greatly to making an informed decision about the direction of his/her career path. Students have to decide, how they are going to accomplish their goals: online, in the classroom or a combination of both.

However, in some situations the inconvenience of maintaining a consistent school schedule prohibits potential students from furthering their education. It is also true that learning is highly dependent on the individual’s motivation to learn. So the bottom line is that the efforts any student puts into their education that eventually determines how much he/she will retain and how beneficial the overall experience was to his/her future career.
