Students at school and university learn far more from lessons with their teachers than other sources (for example:internet and television). Do you agree or disagree with this statement?
In the information age, students have more accesses to all kinds of information. Some people argue that they should grasp every means to learn rather than learn from teachers, while others hold the opposite view. Speaking for myself, I stand on the former one.
No doubt, it is absolutely beneficial for students to learn their lessons in classes with teachers at schools and universities. But, at the same time, we find some knowledge seems practically useless, and teachers are often enthusiastic to explain some theories, which are not of much use for most students in their future. Such lessons are not suitable for everyone. Some students may feel bored and their requests for specific knowledge cannot be met as well.
Using a range of sources such as the internet and television to learn has obviously merits. On the one hand, students can study on line efficiently. For example, modern technology has provided many powerful computer assisted language learning programs that help students with pronunciation, vocabulary, reading and writing of different languages. On the other hand, students can learn practical skills which are taught on the internet and television by using specific examples. Knowledge and these sources would be useful supplements to those from lessons at schools and universities.
From the above mentioned analysis, we can safely draw the conclusion that other sources like the internet and television are indispensable supplements to traditional education forms. And students should also learn much more from the internet and television.
