THE ANSWER

Hi, … I hope that you haven’t forgotten about the project we are going to do together. You know, I have found a couple of great pictures for it.

In the first picture there is a girl who is looking at the screen of her computer and writing down the information her teacher is trying to explain online. Judging by the place she must be at home. In the second one the students are in a traditional classroom with their peers and a teacher. They interact personally and at the moment several of the students are ready to answer the teacher’s question.

These two pictures have a couple of differences. Firstly, they underline two different ways of teaching and learning: distant one in the first photo and traditional one in the classroom in the second picture. Secondly, the presence or absence of peers is a significant difference too.

I suppose in the project we have to mention the advantages and disadvantages of two types of learning. It’s obvious that distant learning saves our time as we don’t have to go to school and back home. On the other hand at home there are more chances to be distracted as nobody controls you. Also if you studying at home and using technologies to interact with teachers and classmates you depend on the quality of the Internet connection very much.

I think that both of these photos properly illustrate the topic of our project. The second one shows the traditional way of getting information from a teacher in a classroom, while the first photo presents the modern way of studying which helped us a lot in 2020 during a pandemic. Both pictures together provoke reflection and arguments about our topic.

As for me I can’t imagine my life only with distant learning courses. I’m a sociable person and I need to communicate with my classmates and teachers face-to-face.

I want to know what you think about my ideas as soon as possible so, please, call me back.
