In the past lectures were the traditional method of teaching large numbers of students. Nowadays new technology is increasingly being used to teach students. What are the advantages and disadvantages of this new approach?

As we move into the twenty-first century and with the advancement in technology, all of aspects of life is influenced by this case and education is no exception. Indeed, in some educational centers traditional form of training have been revolutionized by new technology to some extent that the lecture is no longer the main method of education. While there are a variety of merits to new approach, I personally believe the drawbacks are far more.

On the one hand, many commentators justifiably argue that there are advantages to training students through new technology. Firstly, it is now no longer essential for students to be present in the lecture theatre for their courses. Indeed, this form of course is ideal for people who devote virtually their whole time to working and they can benefit from a flexible class schedule. In addition, the distance learning course is suitable and practical for people across the world who find it difficult to take part in this course. Another using of technology in education is that through training mobile application, tutor and students are able to interactive with each other while they are in their location and study at their own pace.

On the other hand, there are those who subscribe to the view that new approach has had several drawbacks. They argue that traditional method provides a great opportunity for students that want to have face-to–face interaction with students and their professor. Moreover, all students are not comfortable with using technology even if they are part of the digital native generation. Indeed, they may suffer from their lack of technological skills or they not have easy access to technological tools. Furthermore, participating in classrooms give students a sense of unity and encouragement.

In my personal opinion, although teaching students through technological method might have some advantages, the disadvantages are more prominent.
