Pros&Cons: How I feel about remote learning
Remote learning is something that happend, unfortunately, to every student in this world in the past two yaers. When I even hear somebody saying anything about learning from home, I’m not feeling well immidiately.
I see one basic quarantine day: my mum shouting how she would gladly kick all of us out off the house, grandmum kniting sweaters, scarves and socks and thanking God that he didn’t fullfiled mum’s previously mentioned wish and dad lying on the couch and defending his precious remote control like it’s pure gold. Thank God that I am kidding. Well, mostly. If you ask me, I have more cons than pros about remote learning, but that is relative. I mean, it’s good that you can wake up 10 minutes before school starts and not wasting your precious time on considering what to wear, what to bring for lunch, not worring that you are going to miss the bus etc. To be honest, all of us at least once have been sitting in front of Google meet and thinking about how that meal that mun served us is too spicy and not really listening about Einsten’s Theory of relativity. But those are benefints of remote learning, aren’t they? About the next thing I am going to mention, everybody will say Oh my God! I would never do that!. But we all know that is one enormous lie. It is obvious that I am speaking about cheating. Students in our generation have developped more effective and modern ways to cheat on exam, which is way to easier from home, but that is something that the digital revolution brings.

In my opinion, remote learning is something that sort of destroys all the charms of the school age. How can we socialize and hang out with each other if we are all closed in our rooms? In those times, I indeed missed my friends, all of our internal jokes, unintentional outbursts in front, or behind, teachers which turn into unforgettable, epic memories. About the main thing, the learning, I can say that remote learning is disastorous for acquring knowledge. It is impossible to learn anything that way. At home, everything bothers you, distracts you, it is very difficult to concentrate. It makes sense that is cenuries ago, when the first schools were founded, teachers and students were in school for a cetrain time, where they worked effectively. In this situation, we get some materials, which seem to be written in some alien language, we rewrite them and in three days we don’t even remember the heading of the lesson. It is very important to hear the teacher live, an explanation, to be able to ask questions and to understand the essecnce of the lesson. When you go to school, you change the environment, something happens. However, when the whole day is based on one room, which is a bedroom, room for studying, dining room and also a place to rest, time passes slowly, everything is depressing, monotonous and melancholic. But at the same time, time passes so quickly, whether because everything is boring and monotonous, so when that state lasts longer, you don’t know what day or what year it is. The days, and even the time, are wasted in a way.
All in all, I would like remote learning to become history very quickly. Something we will recall and tell our children about, as our grandparents have been talking to us about going to a remote school at night, at dawn, in a meter deep snow, while they were probably accompanied by bears and wolves.
