Education plays a pivotal role in the lives of human beings because it prepares people for a wide range of fields of careers. Education supports the advancement of human understanding on matters that help improve the state of society. Through education, learners grow into doctors, engineers, teachers, plumbers, and all career opportunities. It also enhances students’ brain development and significantly influences their level of creativity (Toksonbaev, and Nurgaziev 33).
Knowledge gained helps the students become sources of modern-day economic, societal and cultural advancement. Thus, education systems must be well organized by the school management to enhance the connectivity of the students with the field they are studying. Online learning and in-person learning are the typical modern ways of schooling. Online learning is distance learning, where the learner and the teacher connect through virtual meetings (Dhawan 7). On the other hand, in-person learning is schooling where teachers and students are geographically in the same area and can physically interact.
Unlike online learning, in-person learning allows the socialization and interaction of students with teachers and their colleagues. The learning environment contributes immensely to the growth of bonds between learners and their teachers (Wang et al., 116). Human beings are interactive species, and no man is an island. Therefore, the schooling surroundings play a vital role in the development of human knowledge and understanding. Teachers can quickly identify the weakness of their students and help them correct the errors noted. Through interacting with one another, students appreciate their teacher’s efforts in making them succeed.
In-person learning caters to both the academic and social status of learners. Learners freely interact and express themselves about the challenges they are undergoing to their peers. In response, their peers counsel them and take action to ensure their mental stability. In-person learning is better because it creates a sense of care and sharing among learners and teachers, guaranteeing better performance from both parties.
Furthermore, in-person learning increases the concentration of students, and they receive personalized educational experiences that help them avoid failure. Every student manages to create their own goal, which the trainer keeps intact to achieve. Personalized education creates a peaceful environment that enables learners to focus on the course without external distractions. A friendly environment translates to increased student welfare, and the improvement of student welfare helps students achieve their goals without worries. Personal learning is an all-inclusive process because learners are fully engaged in the learning process. Learning becomes more accessible because various teaching methods can be included, such as writing and reading segments. Conversely, online learning cannot incorporate other studying methods because it is a virtual process. Students in online education are more disrupted by external conditions when compared to those using in-person learning.
Education is vital in the continuity and spread of knowledge from one person to another. In-person learning is vital in ensuring the delivery of quality education from teachers and students fully equipped with the knowledge. Students understand the differences between their cultural beliefs and those of their peers. Understanding others aids students in respecting others and gaining values and morals that are essential for day-to-day human relations. Above respecting others and creating connections with peers, students also gain accurate and well-elaborated knowledge, making them reliable and responsible in the future after taking up their careers. In-person studies ensure that the community develops and the members are tolerant.
