There are still plenty of reasons to invest in traditional learning. Here are just a few of them.
Traditional learning offers various forms of interactivity, including one-on-one time with teachers and real-time answers to important questions. Interactivity can help students stay more engaged and connected to the material. This aspect of traditional learning is also useful for auditory learners who may struggle to take in material that is only provided in a written format.
Technology may be everywhere today, but that doesn’t mean every student has equal access to it. Providing paper handouts, tests, and syllabi with your course allows for greater and more equal access. No student should have their education suffer due to limitations beyond their own control.
Being able to interact with peers is an important aspect of school. Traditional learning supports the ability to work alongside students and friends while still accessing a high-quality curriculum.
Some students have no problem staying on schedule and remaining organized, whether they have guidance or not. Others really struggle in this area. Traditional learning environments can help the latter to stay focused and structured.
