This is it! Debate #8! The final debate! It’s also my final class of my Masters! Thanks to Kim for inspiring me to try something new. So here goes. My first and last (at least for now) Podcast! Featuring myself Tracy Krenbrink and my daughter Addy!
If you don’t have time to give it a listen I will include my stance below! Debate #8 – Online education is detrimental to the social and academic development of children.
Chris from the agree team said that that Online Learning is a Good Option….key word “Option” for some students and I have to agree! Is it for everyone? No, but it can it be a good option for some students. While I didn’t love pandemic teaching or learning I need to remind myself that wasn’t a true online education experience. Online education teachers are aware of issues such as screen time and they are able to balance activities online and off. They also know to balance assignments done on the computer versus paper and pencil. Online Education is more than sitting in front of a computer 6 hours a days. Personally I think there is a place for both online education and in person education. Online education may not be the best option for everyone and that’s okay!
