Online learning is the access of work and support on theinternet for anyone to be able to connect to for example, BBC bite size, mymaths, doddle and many more. In this context the meaning of future is thatsociety will change the way it is being taught over time and whether this is apositive or a negative. I am personally interested in this matter as now thattechnology and society is changing, I am wondering whether it will effect educationand if so how long will it take and will there be any consequences, for exampleschools might have the possibility of shutting down and each school beingonline rather than taught in a class room.
Also what effects this may have onpeople like teachers who have worked hard for their career. I want to knowwhether this will be the future of education and whether it will advanceeducation in the future.Globally the internet is needed for education as it is easierto research and find information on the things to help develop someone intelligence.My first source of interest of why the internet could be the future ofeducation is because in a place like Kenya they may not be as fortunate to havethe capability to pay for the internet and when the children are at school theywon’t have the resources like computers to help them do online learning to helpthem develop their knowledge. It says that 1bringing broadband toschools could transform lives in the poorest parts of Africa. This is onereason why online learning could be the future of education because it couldtransform lives for the poorer people and will start to give them a betterfuture.
Poorer countries such as Kenya need education support it’s just thatthere are financial barriers that stand in the way of that from happening. In addition, a second source is that 2there athing such a social learning game. This will develop education as societyupdates and develops a lot of the younger generation that is in society playgames and rarely do things such as homework because they want to play videogames or pc games. However, to develop education with online learning there aregames for more of the younger generation, to one advance their intelligence andtwo, they will be entertained while doing it. As it is a part of the internetit will give everyone an opportunity to use this way of learning. Also withonline learning and the idea of social games is strength because it allowspeople to play together and compete against each other or to work as a team, soas people play it they will have social time as well.
A weakness of the socialgames is that there isn’t as many games out there yet however it may develop inthe future. There are only a few educational games however not everyoneglobally will be able to access them. For example people who are less fortunatewon’t be able to access the internet because they won’t have the financial resourcesto pay for the equipment.A third source that agrees with my question is about thepercentage of society globally that are already using online learning and howit has impacted on their life. 3In a recent survey that has beentaken, almost 80% of young people said they’ve taken an online course. Thisalready states that society is changing and that online courses are becomingmore and more popular. In the past it was always that if you wanted to get aqualification you had to pay a fee to do classes that were specified in thatparticular area. However society now is changing and is relating more too onlineresources.
The source says that 3to tackle question of teachingquality, a number of providers have turned to user rating and internalevaluation. Star teacher, for instance, has become a popular teacher evaluationmechanism in China and South Korea, two of the largest e-learning markets. Notmany people tend to say that society is better working in a classroom becausethere are such things as online teachers which are there to help. As you cansee most of society around the world is more attracted to e-learning online.Just as it states in the source that China and South Korea are two of thelargest e-learning networks so this mass of people that are learning onlinearen’t always within the United Kingdom.
There is still however some weaknessthat effect some people like the less fortunate who are homeless or are inpoorer countries around the world.On the contrary, online learning could be its not the futureof education because people are still heading overseas to develop education andrather than doing an online course which could be from anywhere around theworld, there are still some current students globally which head to differentcountries, so they can have different experiences. This could still be apossible thing that happens in the future because
