The benefits of not being tied to school



Nowadays education cannot be conduct well without technology. The
teaching strategies based on educational technology can be described
as ethical practices that facilitate the students’ learning and boost
their capacity, productivity, and performance. Education is the
process of teaching someone at home school or anywhere it's easy to
say it in word, and its easier to teach someone without seeing him/her
, through education technology has made life easier and everything
about education is easily affordable. Among the benefit of technology
in education are;

Easy to access course material

Instructors, teachers or lecturers can post the course material or
important information about a particular course on a websites, or by
e-mail. Which means students can study at a time and location they
prefer and can obtain the study material very quickly.

Student motivation


Computer base instruction can give instant feedback to students, and
explain correct answers through search engine. Moreover , computer is
patient never get tired of processing and its non judgmental with can
give the student motivation to continue learning.

Learning More in less time

Students usually learn less in normal classes but with computer
students learn more in less time when taking online classes or reading
something from Internet.

Wide participation

Learning material can be used for long distance learning and are
accessible to a wider audience , almost with technology all over the
world you can attend webinars and online classes at the same time.
Improve students writing.
Its convenient for students to edit their writing works on words
processing , students edit their assignments , projects works and many
more.

Subjects are easier to learn

Computer made every professional courses or difficult subjects easier
to learn, many educational software are designed and developed to help
children . For example; students can watch a YouTube videos about that
subjects , views graphics and animation videos with that students will
quickly grab and understand things.

It avoid social media addiction

Students are addicted to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, twitter and
other websites from a very early age. The internet can distract them
from the learning process, but you can also use their inclination to
spend time online for a good purpose: Making learning enjoyable. Use
touch-screen technology and online presentations to make the classes
more interactive. You can also rely on technology when you want your
students to take part in discussions. Set up a private Facebook group
for your class and inspire constructive conversations.

In addition , it seems the world will suffers much when there is no
technology , learning will be difficult , traveling and accessing
learning materials are not easily affordable. Computer is changing the
world .

Focus




Most of the time in this era almost every individual need to focus on
one specific field of study , teachers always said " find your field
of interest and study it at university " . What force me to think like
that is , a friend of mine's father want him to study medicine and
become a doctor while he want to become a journalist, but his father
rejected his idea and forced him to apply for medicine, so he left his
dream job , and at that time I think why can't he become a doctor and
journalist at the same time? The answer is ; we relied on our teachers
not on books, and our teachers are specialized in one field. When we
look back to Islamic golden age people at that time are specialized in
many field. Aristotle a well known philosopher and he was referred to
as, the father of biology has specialized in many field such as ;
Biology , Zoology , Physics , Metaphysics Logic, Ethics, Rhetoric,
Music, Poetry, Theatre, Politics and Government.
Its hard to find someone who study and master up to 5 fields. Why?
Because we valued certificate more than the knowledge.
Jabir ibn hayyan the father of early chemistry , he was specialized in
many field not only chemistry his main field are; Alchemy and
Chemistry , Astronomy , Astrology ,Medicine and Pharmacy, Philosophy ,
Physics, engineering and philanthropist.
Wow! These people are amazing.
 And all these people are successful ,their names are still writing on
thousands of books and millions of articles and essays , they made
contribution to the world of science. But the questions that remained
on my mind is why don't we want to be like them? to study different
field like them, and be successful ?
The answer to this questions are:
 We are not studying deeply.
We are not reading every book.
We are not listening to every individual. And
We were influence to study one field.
Most students relies on lectures note they didn't believed in studying
deeply conducting research about what they had already know , compare
it to the new knowledge , when a student start researching will be
smatter than his colleagues who relied on  lectures note.

Reading Books


In this era most of the students are studying just to get the
certificate not the knowledge , if you are studying to get the
knowledge not certificate you have to visit library regularly don't
just read or cram what your teacher has taught you, read essays and
articles visit many educational websites and blog study at home not
only at school you shall study at anywhere, attend important lectures
with include practicals and so on .
Read many books with include your field of interest for example if
your parents resist that you must study a medicine and you want to
study literature don't give up go to medicine faculty attend lectures
after that, go to library read books about medicine and literature
borrow literature's text book use it at home practices makes perfect!

Listening

Students don't want to listen to expert they mostly listen to music
and watching movies , useless things will destroy your life and
future.

As a students of knowledge, who want to study hard, and become expert
in many fields. You have to listen to every expert in different field,
listen to the successful people know what they do, what procedure do
they follow before they become successful, read ,listen and watch from
them.
Are we influence by our community or family?
The answer to this questions is we are influence by family and
community . Nowadays people believed  in what they see at home , what
they see in their community they don't go far , they don't think
critically they believed that they can't do it because no one in their
family ever do it, or try . They believed that no one in their
community study different subjects the guru in their area focus only
on one subject , so its not possible for them this is not true, no is
born with knowledge we learn everything in the world don't let your
society influence you negatively.
Finally whatever  you want to become in future don't let someone to
influence you negatively , don't let your dream job and follow someone
else's idea be yourself.

Learning Online Helps
e-learning-resource-splash.jpg (1024×512)


Many people still consider traditional universities as the best way to
achieve knowledge and get a diploma or degree certificate, but it's
not. Online learning is different and also the best for 21st century
students , it has so many benefit , you can't compare it with crowded
lectures' hall full of noisy students some are arguing , sometimes you
can't even get what the teacher is saying especially in underdeveloped
countries because most of the time over crowded lectures suck.
Underdeveloped countries. Joining online school is not easy only few
people able to do it ,those who have self-dispiline . According to the
Babson Survey Research Group  7.1 million students are studying at
least one course online , studying online has its benefit ;

Free time: When you are an online university student , you have free
time to study, no stress , no much walking from home to school you
only need Internet access, take one hour class and finish it , you
cant wait for lecturer to come while studying online.

Save money: It help you to save money , if you are going to
traditional university you always spent money for transportation
,buying lunch sometimes even breakfast and no accommodation.

Crowded lectures: when you sit in front of your computer , your class
start, you wear your headphone listening to the audio or watching
videos , do you think you will hear noise from somewhere else ? Like
when you are in traditional university sitting in class noise from
everywhere full of pandemonium.

Its effective and understandable : You will learn alone , with great
audio and clear videos , you can listen while reading , or watching
videos with some understandable examples either in pictures or in
animation. It depend on the school you are learning from.

Easy to ask questions: many students are afraid and shy to ask
questions in traditional school , its quite different from online
school you will ask many numerals questions as you want and soon you
will get replay from your instructors or facilitator.

Reading skills : It improve your reading skills , and connect you with
many other students from all over the world with you can learn new
things from each individual.

No limits : You can study whatever you want there is no limitation you
can enrol many courses from different school ,if you are among people
who are studying different courses from different school at different
time you have to set a plan time table for yourself if you want things
to go successfully.

In addition you need to behave well and adopt self disciplines,
without self discipline you can't control yourself and set a good time
for your studies and you will earn up.learning nothing from your
computer.

Computers Vs Humans



Computers have high computation power,  they make calculations at
speed of  thousand times more than the human brain. They have the
ability to do multiple computations at simultaneously. Computers have
high rates of data analysis and processing they can edit and store
much data in memory .

With all these issues it seems nothing is more intelligent than a
computer . there are so many argument between students to students and
in between experts, that human being or computer with one is more
intelligent? To answer this questions scholars and expert has discuss
about it .

Maybe the only significant difference between a really smart
simulation and a human being was the noise they made when you punched
them. (Terry Pratchett).

every piece of software you use ranging from your web browser to the
operating system itself was coded line by line by a programmer,
Jakub Marian.

A friend of mine ask me a questions " what if a computer become
smatter than human being? " he asked .
I replied with, " computer will never be smatter than human being
because computer are always program by smatter people. "
Humans have knowledge of their existence and sense of self. Although
humans compute at low speeds than computers, they are better decision
makers. Computers make decisions by evaluating the presented
expressions and deriving from that a new expression.
Human being have sense, and human can learn new things each day and
became self educated without been control by anyone or being program
to do something . while computer was programmed by an expert and
whatever you read , watch ,and listen it has come from the brain of
human , he/she think , make research and then finally program
everything .

Can Human being  create something more intelligent than him ?
 I was asked at school during computer class I replied with,"who is
the the most intelligent and knowledgeable person in the world " the
answer is no one everyone has his ability and capability of learning
you can't make something beyond your intelligent , you can't create
something beyond your knowledge, learning has no limits .

Computers can access, process and store more information than humans,
but that does not make them more intelligent. Intelligence requires
goals, values and decision making based on observations, beliefs and
so on and so forth . not just algorithms which have been created by
humans and human cannot create something beyond his experience.

A bank with so many cameras and computers which will detect someone
who is guilty, or someone who hold a weapons with all this , human use
his experience to rob the bank in a way that computer  computer cannot
detect him.

 computer is not more intelligent  than a human, it’s much faster
operationally and can solve problems at a quicker rate , they can
store much more information, recall and process it , many times faster
than any human.But unfortunately they are created and programme by
someone who use his intelligent and knowledge to create a machine that
will help someone to do multiple some task easier.





In addition ,  a large part of human intelligence has to do with
creativity, imagination and analogical thinking - of which I’ve yet to
read computers being at all capable of.  I don’t feel computers will
ever truly be “intelligent”. Fast, efficient processors of
information, sure, but not intelligent.

Finally Computers will never be as smart as humans because they can
only do what a programmer “teaches” them to do, and the programmer
cannot teach them more than a subset of what he himself knows.
