Online education needs a “Dictator”

Online education needs a “Dictator” It is “politically” incorrect to suggest that you should work to pass your exams because it discriminates against lazy lay-abouts. But the facts go in the direction that the conventional education is suited for the lazy ones! If you think it is too dramatic, please read further. If you are at a “politically” incorrect school the teachers will be the dictators. They will lay down the rules about what homework you must do, when it must be presented and which books you need to read. They will keep an eye out for any learning difficulties that you have and try to help you, that is true, but there are not many cases of in primary and secondary schools that allow freedom in learning schedule. This is more present in the universities, during Bachelor, Master or Doctorate studies, even though at all above, you will have pre-determined schedule on the curriculum with limited number of subject to choose from. If you are very clever you will sit in the classroom and learn without any effort, just because there is nothing else to do so you might, as well listen to the teacher. The teachers will not let you wander away to do something more interesting, you can count on this. My daughter could not understand why her school reports always said “could do better” when she was top of the class. She never did much work at home, had all “A’s” so her success was really the success of her “dictatorial teachers”. Home schooling online My father set aside a room in the house for our distance learning, where all I needed was arranged for me to study without distractions. I had to sit in that room until the job was done. For me, boredom is much worse than work. I am not lazy, so I read all the textbooks from cover to cover, I have even invented a good way to memorize vocabulary that allowed me to learn languages with very little effort. These characteristics make me an ideal candidate for home schooling and distance learning. Among other things that was my aim in life – to do as little work as possible with as little boredom as possible. Because my father was “a dictator” I got into the way of doing everything as soon as possible, so that my father would let me have time to myself when I had finished. In other words, I became my own “dictator” forbidding myself to procrastinate. It is good to know that without “a dictator” your home schooling, distance learning, education online – call it what you will, will fail because you never get around to it. If you are a parent with children homeschooling online you will have to be “the dictator”. If you are a student using e-learning, guess what…there is not anybody else to be “the dictator”, so you will have to be your own strict disciplinarian. You have to rule yourself with a rod of iron and keep yourself motivated for e-education. If you do not have a stamina and determination, what is to prevent you from failing to put in your projects on time? Nothing. Therefore, find fun in the work you do, lessons you learn, home works you prepare! There is always enough fun in any job for some misguided individuals to do it as a hobby. If you want to be beneficial for the online society you can always find e-forum associated with online education and you can become the “answers person”. Whenever another student has a problem, you can answer the question before the lecturer gets round to it. Of course this does mean that you will are have to work hard to get the answer before anybody else does, but remember that the others will probably be procrastinating, and the teachers will have finished their 9 to 5 day and will not reply till tomorrow, so you will not have much competition. Some studies still need you to be your “own dictator”. For example, I used to do one hour a day practicing the harmonium and one hour each day practicing the violin and I was fortunate because my father was “a dictator”. If I had not done my practice towards the end of the day he would interrupt whatever I was doing and order me off to do my practice. This “politically incorrect procedure” made me determined not to be caught out again. I completed my practice before I started doing what I really wanted to do. Later on, I had got so much into the habit of doing my practice as early as possible that I could be my own dictator. multi-tasking What will happen if there is no “dictator”? Then you better not consider education online as a possibility to gain knowledge. You will fail if you keep putting off your study, without compromise or distractions, otherwise you will fail in your studies. There was one interesting situation when my boss congratulated me because I was continuing to write a computer program, while the partitions in the office were being torn down and new wiring and equipment installed. The noise was horrendous and people had to keep going round me and the computer I was working on. My experience with distance education had taught me to keep at the job ignoring all distractions, so you will have to do the same to benefit from education online. Sweetener of e-learning If you are your own “dictator “you can do the projects with the related study in a fraction of the time that a traditional course would take. You can enjoy yourself for the rest of the time, or if you are a real glutton for punishment, you can even take two e-learning courses at once and get twice the satisfaction when you succeed. A tape recorder can record a lecturer speaking at 50 words per minute and one can play it back at 500 words per minute without sounding high and squeaky. Our brains can handle the 500 words per minute better because our thoughts do not wander off after distractions. If you can read at 500 words per minute (physically impossible), perhaps you can do ten home schooling courses at once?! I feel tired just thinking about it. We will have to wait for the future scientific developments to gain this ability. Read more about the top 38 predictions of the humanity development here : Future predictions

Online ethics

Online ethics The increasing usage of Internet imposes increased concern for the parents regarding their children’s behavior and usage of “the new entertainment and everything” for the younger generations. Being concern is not sufficient, but some parents go a step further and see into the Internet history of the their dearest. There is no doubt that parent should have all necessary information on the children’s interest, and with this including Internet behavior, but the border between intruding the child’s privacy and the trust should not be crossed.

With the constant reshaping of the means of communication, everybody’s life changes, therefore this fact has to be considered when the parent is trying to impose opinion or a way of thinking over acting of the children.
