I believe that online school is just a trend.
I myself woud'nt want to be in online school. There are pros and cons to online school. A few pros are that you can learn while being in the comfort of your own home. You can have help from your parents. If you have any questions you can use the internet to look things up since you are already on the computer.
The cons are you wont be able to enjoy class with any of your fellow classmates. You wont have many school friends if any while your growing up. You are less likely to get in trouble if you are not influenced by another role. Over all I think it is a trend and going to public, charter, or private school online isnt a better option than just going to regular school.
I think that online school is just a trend. There is no way one day the whole world is not going to have in class school. I mean how would people find one on one teaching; what if you have a question about something. Also I agree with Braydon ( never thought the day would come). I think that a lot of kids would be distracted by other activities/ technology. How would you get into college. And, computers aren't perfect, they mess up they could lose your information. So, i think that online school is just a trend.
I so agree with you. Its just a trend and the most people that get on online schools is older adults.I think thats its going to end up going to all the private schools and charter schools are going to have online school. T he only bad thing is that you would not have alot of friends like you would if you were just going to regular school. The other thing is that you will not be very social ,you wont know how to talk to other people that are around you or anyone that you do know you wont really know how to talk you would probally just say yeah ok or in slang k .
I agree with you too. Earlier I said that online school might be the future of most schools, but now that you mention it, most kids like to see their classmates at school. I still think that online school will get more popular but there will probably be more schools that require kids to actually be there.
It may not seem likely to some now, but the possibility that online schooling could become America's future is increasing. Technology is growing and with that the system that is online schooling, is growing with it. This easy way of learning is providing a more convenient and affordable way for one to further his education. You are able to learn at your own pace, but with as good efficiency as regular school. This is the future of American education. in the eyes of many it is a trend, but as we move on, people will start to recognize the efficiency, convenience and affordability of this growing system.
In the eyes*
I believe that going to an online school would have good parts and bad parts, but on the whole, I must say that it is just not logical. For example, if you go to school online, you will have the comfort of your own couch and whatever else might be in your fridge and what not, but don't you think that you might get a tad bit sidetracked by your TV or xbox if you are at home? I mean, really, if you are sitting on your couch staring at an XBOX 360 with a controller right there, don't you think that might be a little enticing? It would, however, be very nice, to be sitting on your own couch, but be realistic. It would, on the whole, do more harm than good.
Another thing you must consider is the fact that you wouldn't get daily interaction with kids, and this might take the fun out of being a kid. If you don't get outside and hang out with kids, life might get a little boring. Also, some kids might not have computers, and that would be an essential. No computer would mean no school.
Of course, you have to think about the positives as well. If you go to school online, you won't have any distractions, and you won't have to worry about a teacher going at too fast or slow of a pace for you. Basically, you have more freedom. Another thing is that you won't have to worry about physical bullying. While they can still send you messages, you can just laugh at them for being cowards behind a computer screen.
So, while online school might sound pretty cool, it is simply not practical. I believe that while it would be fun, public, private, and charter schools just cannot be replaced.
I believe that online schooling can never compare to a charter school. Now I'm not saying the same thing about public schools. I think online schools are much better, when it comes to the comparison of the two, (online-public). Public schools can affect just as much as an online school program, but I think if you really set your mind to something out of school, online school is there to help. I do have to agree that when it comes to sports, or outside of school activities, its hard to maintain both - education and fun. But if you are given the ability to go at a charter school, then that is the best. That is what I think about online & public/charter schools.
I have to disagree with you.^^ You also have to consider the fact that online schooling does make you at home, leaving you with no "buddies". Maybe the X-box does distract many people, but just as much as socializing does. Some people have the ability to maintain that recognition of friends like the people of the "X-box distraction" do. Some people really do affect their grades, by the friends they choose to have. And even those times when people worry about what their friends think about their smartness of a "nerd". And when they worry about when they will be able to hang out. I also like the fact that you are able to do everything at your own pace. For instance: When class is over you must directly leave to your next period, whether or not your work is completed. For online schooling, you have no certain time for a certain class period. Online schooling has just as many benefits as the public/charter schooling.
Online schooling is certainly a trend. Why you ask it's because now these days every thing is online and as we are speaking well in this case typing look at what we sre doing typing online and that is proof that it trending we are starting to get home work online and also school are disstributing ipads to students and that what they do theyre home work on so that is why i believe that oline schooling is trending
I was just reading a few posts, including mine, and I seem to have neglected to state whether or not I think online school is a trend, so here it is;
I believe that online school is most definitely a trend, and that it could never replace public, private, or charter schools. However, I can see online tutors. That would be the best way, and in my opinion, the only way, to utilize the internet to further your education. Without schools, where are these online-schooled children going to stay while their parents are at work? Summer camps are only available during the summer, hence their name, so what about the normal school year? Also, without parents, where's the guarantee that the child is actually doing homework? Anyway, I believe that online school is a trend, and that, contrary to the beliefs of some people, public, private, and charter schools will never be matched by an online school, period.
Online school is definitely a trend. For people like her, online school is a better alternative than regular school. However for most people, they like to interact with other people and do hands on activities. Being a solitary person on technology all the time is not very health or a fun way to live your life. People need to know how to manage and rule the technology in their life, not let technology rule their life.
I think online school is great because you can save on what you like singing.and plus it would help on your school work rather than doing it at home.and you can do both things,at a halftime.
I think that online schooling is the future of education. It allows the student to have more free time. Although it does have its downsides, such as the numerous distractions of the average household, it seems to be more beneficial then any other option. Instead of spending 7 hours in school learning at the same pace as everyone else, each student can spend 3-4 hours online learning at their own pace. In my opinion, the benefits outweigh the disadvantages.
I belive that online school is a trend,but there are benifits and non-benifits to both school and online schools.For instens with public,privet or charter schools you can work with others;meet other people,and do more hands on stuff the negatives though are that you can get destracted or the lessions are going to fast or to slow for you.Now online school you can do it any time your ready to learn,and thats great for people who dont have the time to be stressed by school because of there other activities,and can go at there own pase,but the down side to online school is that you can not engage in class activities and meet people.
I think online schooling is a trend and will remain that way because it takes more responsibility out of the parent and child. It requires the child to fulfill a certain amount of work with household distractions and internet access at ease. It also requires the parent to check in constantly at her/his child's progress as for the student to graduate. Regular schooling is much simpler for the child and parent.
I think that online schooling is only a trend for several reasons, but the biggest is that few people can actually use it. If both of the child's parents have jobs, then do you really think that they are going to just leave their child alone for the entire work day? Even If they did there is no way they would get any work done. I know for sure that I wouldn't.
Some people might also have different opinions. If 2 parents homeschooled their child and the child decided that he or she wanted to go to a public school then there parent would suggest to look on line for a school. So I guess that an online trend is good for american education.
I think that online school in kind of both because a lot of people nowadays are in different athletics and after school programs.It is a trend because nobody really wants to spend all day in classrooms, most people would rather being in the comfort of their home while they learn. It probably won't go away because more and more people will probably want to use it for the exact same reason as for it being a trend.
I think online school is the futrue of american education is a good idea because it makes people catch up on work they missed, they can learn when they are at home,they can get help from their mom or dad and if they need more help the can search it online.
I strongly believe online school is kind of a trend and american education at the same time because a lot of people today are in different sport and after school programs. It's also a trend in a way because students don't want to spend hours in a small classroom, they'd rather want to be comfortable in their own home while they learn and catch up on work they missed.
I think that online school is going to be in thefutur becouse lots of kids have different sceduals and on online school you can do it on youre on youre schudal so i do think online school is not a trend
Okay... It might be a trend and/ or the future of education, but online school won't get you through collage. Think of it- You walk in to the office of the manager who's going to give you a job. And your sitting there holding a degree-that-you-earned-on-a-free-for-anyone-online-school-and-printed-it-from-your-computer... So really since they sorta kinda just give it away for free, it's more of a trend.
I think online schooling is could be the future of teaching but I beleive that it is actually a trend because people can choose to do online schooling if they wanted to but I dont see it as everyone doing it in the future.
I think that online education may become the future of American education. It has many pros and a few cons. If you are using online education, you may have more time to do the things you like. You also have more resources to use when online. The biggest pro I see is that you won't be distracted by other students and will not be influenced by them since there aren't any. This however, can be a problem as well. Kids who use online education can have problems with their social life. This is if they don't participate in activities that involves other people since they can't make friends at school.
I think this is going to be the future of education, because mostly everybody will want to have online school's. Sooner or later people are going to get tired of taking there kids to school, it's also useful because the kids can learn at there own pace. That's why I think it will be a trend, but it's going to take a while to develope, because a lot of people don't like change. Honestly to me I don't think it's a good idea, because some kids will probably search the answers up on the internet.
I you ask me it is more of a choice than either or. Some people would prefer to use online education than school while others might prefer school over online education. It all depends on which method seems to work better for you. Well if you ask me though I do think that online education is the future of American education. If you look at most schools today ranging from middle school to high school to college a lot of different educational exercises are met there. In fact now that you mention it, are we not technically right now using technology for educational purposes, I think so.
I don't belive online schooling is the future of education. It's just not for everyone. For the girl in the video it was instead of regular school because she wanted to focus on ballet. But most people may want to be lawyers and teachers where interacting with people at school. Plus little kids wont be able to use the technology. And what if you have lots of kids that would mean lots of laptops . Some parents dont stay home and ont like to leave their kids at home.Plus it would get boring. Its just that educatoin wont evolve so easily.
I believe that online education is just a trend. I believe this because even though there are a lot of pros to online learning, the cons definitely out weigh them. For one, the comfort of learning in your on home is nice, however being home might mean that you aren't nearly as focused, and that could be detrimental to your grades. Also when you're learning by yourself, you won't have he help of a teacher, or friend. So I think that online education is just fad and will not be our future.
I believe that for people whose life pretty much revolves around an extracurricular activity, such as the girl in the video, that online school is the future. Online school allows a child to work at their own pace and be able to go to things like rehearsals during the school day. Online school also allows you to to be able to do all of your school work at home. I believe that for people who are able to go to traditional school that online school is not the future. Kids like going to school so they can socialize with friends. Traditional school also offers sports and clubs that you could not do with online school.
I believe that online schooling is just a trend. If you do online schooling, you would not be able to do activities like sports and clubs. You will not be able to be with your classmates and you just do not get the real feeling of being in a real school if you are in an online school. If you do online schooling you have the comfort from being in your own home, you also can have the internet for help. I believe that online schooling is just not for me.
I believe that online schooling is more of a trend then our near future. The reason being is because people have different preferences when it comes to schooling. Some people have rigorous schedules and have to opt toward online or homeschooling for convenience, and some people don't or they have to have a hands on class or have to be with other peers to learn how to work well with others. It all depends on the person and I really don't believe that online schooling will take over the public, private, and charter school system. School has been with us since God knows how long and it's not because we are afraid of change but we can't change our ways of interacting with other people. It is our nature to interact with people to widen our range of comprehension and helping us work well with others or some of us might just become hermits and live in a house 100 miles from the nearest society of humans or ANY living creatures... :)
i agree with Brittney because as she said, other people have rigorus schedules while other have calmly schedules. Wr should be able to choose what is most comfortable for us. I also thnk that if people choose to do online schooling, they won't really pay attention. and open new tabs and do other things besides learing.So I just think that this is a trend. I would also like to add in that if people don't have any freinds, it's almost that same as suffering from depression, it's a known fact what I just added. If it weren't for school, we wouldn't even have friends in the first place.
I think that online school is just a trend and that it will never have the quality that public/charter schools have. Here is another thing just think of all the friends you have and the ones that became your friends at school would probably not be your friends now. That's because there aren't very many ways to meet or learn about other people in the online school. That is why I think that online school is just a trend.
I also agree that online school is just a trend, but if we were comparing it to a public school that's a different story like Raneem said. Comparing it to a charter school it's not as good because charter schools' they have the education you and the entertaining you like. Yeah an online school might have some advantages like if you something you don't get you can search it up on the internet. Also you learn in a comftorable enviornment, but there are some disadvantages like your social skill won't be as good and you might
Be at a regular school. Overall i think online schooling is a trend, but as like braydon said i can see online tutoring but not online schooling.
I think that online school is starting to become the new future of lots of schools. Right now, online school is just a trend, but I have a feeling it will become more. In the video the girl seemed very happy to have time to do other things and also do school at her own pace. So, once again, I do think online school will become the new educational economy.
Well i think online school is just a trend. I would rather have friends and sports than sit in front of a computer all day. It would be awesome to work when you have time but what about sports and friends. It wouldn't be worth it! So yes, online school is just a trend.
I think that education on the internet is a trend, because not everybody agrees to be educated on the internet, some people want their childrenn to seee and hear education, eo I belive its a trend
I definitely think that online school is a trend. For the girl in the video, online school was convenient for her because she had ballet during the day and for many hours. Although it was convenient for her, it’s not a good idea for everyone. Even though you are at the comfort of your home, there are many distractions such as your phone, TV, other websites on your computer, etc., to get you off your work. You wouldn't be able to interact with other people and sometimes the best way to learn is to learn from others.
I think that online school is just a trend. It's only a trend because some parents would like their children to stay home and be comfortable while learning. Other parents would like their children going to a regular school because it helps them stay on task and there are teachers right there to help the student. I honestly think that going to a regular school is better because you make friends there and your life becomes social. I also think its better because you have teachers supervising you and that you have friends to help you on your homework. Plus, you get distracted by games such as X Box, PS3, Ntendo 3DS, Wii,ect. I believe that online school is just a trend, not the future of school.
I think that online school is just something for people who are just too busy in life. If people just don't have the time on their hands to really spend about 8 hours in a bunch of classrooms, online school is beneficial to them. I do not, however, think this is the future of education. Some people actually need to be in a classroom to focus. School will always be there, just in many different forms.
Personally, I don't think that homeschooling online is a good thing. I don't think that it is good for the studenr because the student might nt be able to learn and interact more with teachers and students as much as they would in a regular classroom. In a normal classroom, a student could ask the question that they need to ask, or they can get tutoring. If they are homeschooled, they can only get the understanding from the computer. Therefore, if they are homeschooled and then they come to a public school, they might be more behind than others.
I think online schools are a trend. I think regular school is better than online school because at a regular school, you interact with classmates and teachers. It prepares you for the real world when you need to talk to co-workers and your boss.
I completely agree with Victoria, I believe that online school is just a trend. I don't think that it is a good thing to do or something that I would like to do. Less interaction, with people can make it harder for a social life in the future.
It really depends on who you are. If you have some other things to do during public school hours, or if you're anti-social, or you just don't like hanging out with other human beings, then yes. Online school would be a good choice. But if you're more of a social person and your time allows it, then go for actual human-to-human school.
I think online school is more than just a trend. My sister actually goes to an online school similar to the one in the video and it has actually worked out very well. Her grades and mood have defiantly improved and it also allows her to have a job. Another reason is kids are attracted to technology, so going to school on one may interest them. While there are benefits of real school (such as social life) there are many reasons to go to online school such as free time or escape from bullies if they're picked on at school. So yes I think its more than a trend.
In my opinion, I believe that online schooling is the future of American education. As our generation grows, people will be able to produce products that will give you the only option of online schooling. Even though this might turn out to be our future, this doesn't mean that it's the best thing. I think that the way we receive our education today is better then online schooling. Most people need human interaction to learn correctly. So therefore, I believe that online schooling is the future of our education.
I think that online school is not a trend. Online school will be here as long as the internet will be in existence. There are thousands of thousands of online schools, if one stops it wont matter people will go to other online schools. i think it will be here as long as the internet will be here.
I think online school is just a trend, and there is some good and bad stuff to online school. Its bad because you could get very distracted some kids get distracted at school and if you have online school you could also be on another page. I could be good because you can go at whatever your pace is and not get left behind.
I think online school is just a trend because it's not as good as normal school because it is very easy to get distracted. You could have another webpage up or you could be on another electronic device. It is also a bigger responsibility because you're not in a classroom where it is easier to focus and actually learn more stuff. Also computers can act up and if you're in the middle of work it can shut down and delete all your progress but the good thing is that you can work at your own pace whereas in school you could fall behind or you could be ahead.
I think that online school is a good idea. Staying home would be more convenient. You don't have to drive to go to school and you would have more time for activities. You can study without being disturbed by other people. I think online school is cool.
I believe online school is the future of America. Mankind went from living in caves to living in penthouses. They went from no lightbulb to having smartphones, so why couldn't, in the future get rid of community schools and take online school.
I believe online school is a trend because you still need to have good communication skills so you would like to go to regular school. I hope you understand what I mean. Also from the video it seems like the girl can go to school whenever she wants. What if she decides to not go to school at all? Then she probly wouldn't get into college. Also I don't think you would learn as much because you could be able to cheat on a test since I don't think the teacher can see you online. I also don't think it's the future because every one wouldn't like it, so in order to keep every body happy you would have to have both.
I believe it's a trend. It's not good to let an teenager take control of there education, in fact, it's not good to let anyone be in control of there own education. You might miss out on important information.
I think that online school is just a trend because it'd be boring to just to sit at home with none of your friends and do work. I would much rather be at school being taught by a teacher while being with my friends than be at home alone. Also if we go to school on our computers than that would probably cause more people to get computers/phones to do school work on. If everybody got computers than most people would be on the computer not doing work rather than being outside or playing a sport. Also people would probably just barely ever do their work because they might think that their work could be due whenever. If online school does become the future then I think that America might have more lazy students and students that fail more grades.
I think that the online school would be very boring because you would be lonely and there would not be any friends that you can socialize with so I think it would be boring.Also I think tthat the kids would not get a hands in feeling with the teacher
I think that online school is not the future of education but merely a trend,but an awesome trend none the less. I think this because of peoples' different learning types..Some are visual,some are verbal, some are written,and some are a mixture of two or three of these.For this reason I think that online school,which is most likely more written than any thing else, would not accommodate all learning types and is not the future of education.
I think online school is just a trend because all you do all day is be on the computer and you have no body to talk to,you would be by yourself. I really don't think people would do that.Also Because at school you move around and have sports and PE but not when you're just sitting at a compute desk,not moving around and getting exercise.
Honestly, I think in the future, this is where we will learn. Not in a school but online. Now some kids need online school. Maybe they are getting bullied, or they can't concentrate with other kids around, that's fine. But there is a lot of stuff you have to give up with online school. Your social life is one. You won't have as many friends. That can get quite boring and sometimes when it's all work, work, work, your brain can shut off. But there can be good things from online school. For one, you have your family by you to help you. Two, you can stay at home. Take a break when you need one, rest a little longer, eat when you want. It can be good. Me personally, though, I would rather go to a traditional school, but that's just me. So I think online school can be a good thing, but it can be a bad thing too.
I think that online school is a good idea. Some peolpe in this world have trouble with school. With online school it can give you the ability to be comfortable with whatever situtation you ar.
I think online schooling is the future of American education, because everyday people rely more on technology. This means people are getting lazier by the second which leads to homeschooling online.
In my opinion, I believe that online school is just a trend. Even though it would be better for kids who get distracted easily, it has some cons. First of all, online school would be kind of boring because you don't have friends around you who you can talk with. Second, online school has no social time or any activities you can do with your friends. I believe that online school is just a trend, and it will disappear sooner or later.
I think that online school is a trend because it limited the bullying to just name calling instead of physical contact. Another reason is anyone can come and take the course from any where in the world.
I think that online school is a bad idea. First of all, any kind of test or work of any kind can be easily copied from the internet or a textbook. It is also tough because you do not have anything to work with and no colleagues to help you out. When you are in a classroom environment, you have the surroundings, teachers, and peers to give you helpful information on what you are solving; you don't have that luxury at home. Finally, at your house, you tend to slack off and not be in a concentration zone, whereas at school you are calmed and focused. Even as I'm writing this I feel slacking!
As your English teacher, I support both communication and collaboration. Furthermore, since opinions are a most valued freedom, let's express them thoughtfully and respectfully.
