zarnakand replied to your post: i lost count of all the times i’ve been on moodle…that’s not education.
I can see why they use it (like saving trees and better access and all that) and usually my class goes through powerpoints in class and just puts the powerpoint on moodle for reference
it’s just confusing sometimes and multiple times I passed in an assignment in the wrong page and just auugh
I don’t object about the use of IT’s on education, that is actually something positive, the bad thing is that IT’s are used for almost every aspect of education severing the connection between students and teachers, by doing that you lost almost any chance to impart a personalized education, I’m aware that not all teachers can tailor the experience for every student, but, they can address particular situations better if there’s more personal interaction with the apprentice.
Not only that, online platforms kinda go for a “standardized test” approach since is the cheapest to implement, those things might come in handy in some situations but that kind of test is hardly good at the time of actually measure a student’s comprehension of a certain topic. More importantly they actually demoralize students with issues from wanting to learn.
I could rant all night but I’ll stop here.
