Online networking is not just changing the way we experience our regular daily existences, but additionally, it changes learning all through the classroom. With more people having access to cell phones and other devices at younger ages now, instructors are likewise altering their instructing techniques to join web-based social networking to enhance the learning experience. Online networking has changed the way we communicate with professors and how we do group work. It also allows us to learn from other sources as well. Things have certainly gotten significantly more beneficial and easy with web-based social networking, and students are exploiting the comfort it conveys to their training and education.
Some ways that online networking has helped with education and learning is:
- Improving communication
Communicating between professors and their students has become easier. Unlike before, when you were confined to email or in-person dialogs. For me, it makes my life and learning experience a lot better as I don’t have to wait till next class to ask a question. I can just inbox professor online and get a response almost immediately.
- Easy peer teamwork
Before students had to actually meet up to complete group work. nowadays students don’t have to meet in person to actually do group work. they can use such resources like Google Docs, Facebook group chat, or team messaging apps like Slack to communicate with each other and complete projects and assignments. For me, this is very important as my personal, work and school schedules don’t always work well with my group members. So, having the options like Facebook, google docs and slack it allows us to complete projects more efficient.
- Allows for learning from other sources
Online networking sites allow for an individual to choose and join a certain group or follow a certain person whether it is educational or not. Students are still learning and what they learn can be used towards their own education. Also, it will help students in looking for jobs, help to build a resume, how to write a proper essay, the learning topics are endless.
Online networking has had some good impacts on education and the way we learn but there are also some bad impacts online networking have done to education and learning.
So do you think online networking has done more good or bad to education and the way we learn?
