Students may have the
opportunities to attend an online school and they can make a choice between online
schools and traditional schools. There are some similarities between an online school
and studying in a traditional school, however there are also many differences. Most traditional learning classrooms are
designed where the teacher is giving direct instruction and students are
listening and taking notes. Traditional school is a better education and better prepares a student
for their future by having face-to-face contact with the student
and teacher and enables socialization with students.

In
addition, Students find it easier to have a face to face lesson with the
teacher. Traditional
schools offer students ways to interact with teachers and peers in a way that
online formats do not. While many online courses integrate some form of
physical interaction in hybrid courses, courses that are entirely online do not
have a face to face component. “While you may see your professor on video, you
can’t raise your hand and get immediate feedback or lean over to your classmate
and ask a question. With face to face interaction you develop lifelong contacts,
memories and experiences that are harder to foster in an online environment.
These types of interactions humanize the educational experience in a way that
online learning does not”(Alleyne, 2013).

 Traditional school prepares children for the
real world by having by them interact with diverse people. Traditional schools usually have a diverse population
of students coming from a vast number of cultural backgrounds. At a traditional
school students are presented with the task of learning how to interact, get
along with and solve problems with peers who are different from themselves. The
same opportunities may not be available to students who are at an online
school. Attending a traditional school prepares students for life in a diverse
society (Lawrence, July 5, 2013).”

Online school is
better because you can work at your own pace and students
can focus and avoid distractions from other students. For example, Students can access their course at any
time, from anywhere they can log on, in most cases. This means that parents,
working students, and professionals on the move have the option of attending
classes no matter their work schedule. Students only need a computer and
Internet access to take online classes.
One of the benefits of
online education is that students may not have to sit for long periods of time.
Lessons can be paused when needed, and notes read at will. (Mark Aspillera) “What
Are the Potential Benefits of Online Learning”

                                                        In
addition, it is true that studying online requires more
self-motivation and time-management skills, because you will
spend a lot of time on your own without someone physically close to keep you
focused on deadlines. Your online course will not only teach you geology or
poetry, it will also help you become more self-motivated, a trait that will
make you stand out in the workplace and beyond. It will look great on your
résumé. (Tania
Heap, 2017) “Benefits of Studying Online”

In
conclusion, these are some of the similarities and difference between online
school and traditional school, they both have a similar routine, and a similar
chance to learn and the textbook are also similar. On the other hand, they are
different because homeschool is individual, there are less chances to meet new
friends and the learning is faster.
