From a 15-Year-Old Student: e-Learning is Fun But It’s Useless


From TechXav:

But the main issue is that we don’t really learn much from the materials teachers post online as compared to the traditional way of education for the past few centuries.

Interesting opinion from this popular Singapore young blogger.

Questions:

1. In what ways ‘we don’t really learn much’ from e-Learning besides distraction and bandwidth bottlenecks?

2. In what ways ‘the traditional way of education for the past few centuries’ better besides scoring As after going through it?

I suspect the answers could be found in the way students are assessed over centuries.
