There is an ongoing debate between the techniques of educating our upcoming generation. Many say that the modern approach is through our online network, that students should complete college courses through online services. This way is indeed easier and cheaper than attending a full-time college but the service is lacking. I stand by the idea that school should be a place, not a webpage. There is a certain amount of technology that should definitely be incorporated in order to understand the current age but I do not believe there is reason to commit to such an extreme form of education. How can we expect our students to function when the only contact they have with other human beings is through a computer? By having an online course more deadlines may be missed and the impact of knowledge learned through a glass screen is no where near as entertaining as getting the hands on experience. I believe that by committing to an online based college system our community will experience a spike in dropouts, especially those who cannot afford to have internet or are lacking in access. Motivation to attend school will drop because it is hard to want something that exists only in the digital world. Also I believe that people will begin to misunderstand each other. Communicating through a computer is like talking at someone through a solid black pane. There is no way to know who the person is, their personality, or their passion for the subject. There will also be a jump in college and money frauds, hackers will have easier access to unassuming students and it will become harder for police to track down illegal actions. While an online system may have a positive side I do not believe that our generation is in the right mind-set for such a drastic change.
