Traditional Classroom vs The Digital Classroom



Traditional Classroom

The traditional schooling experience requires you to attend classes in person and on campus. It makes sense to attend classes in person if you decide to live in the dorms or are an incoming freshmen who wants the real college experience. There are certainly more opportunities to join clubs, associations, or fraternities/sororities while taking classes on campus. Also, you may need additional assistance from guidance counselors and professors, which is more readily available on campus. Traditional classes may be a better choice for students who aren't very savvy with technology or who enjoy interacting with teachers and professors face-to-face.

In addition, there are majors that require more hands-on training during class, such as:
• Automobile Mechanic/Technician
• Computer Science/ Engineering
• Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning Technician
• Nursing




The Digital Classroom
 
The digital classroom(flipped classroom, blended learning and smart classroom) refers to the "technology-enabled" classroom where student learning and interaction with the instructor and peers is fully supported through strategic use of information and communication technologies (ICTs). As these terms are not well-defined, they are used inaccurately so be aware. The flipped classroom, for its part, is defined as a learning model where students receive instruction online but critique and apply their newly-acquired knowledge in the classroom with their peers. In that sense, the flipped classroom is inherently social but also efficient. Blended learning is a
combination of elements of face-to-face instruction and online instruction; online instruction may be provided by using social media, online learning platforms, systems and tools; students work together under the guidance of instructors to apply their new knowledge to complex problems.

In education from K-12 and in the post-secondary years, the digital classroom has come to mean a wide range of initiatives and processes, and may include digital tools and gadgets as a part of the learning space or environment. This space may or may not include digital archives and repositories, remote access to information and communications technologies (ICTs) and access to infrastructure, improved access to education, buildings to accommodate alternative or contested perspectives, peer knowledge communities and knowledge production, and non- canonical material and experiences into formal institutions of education. The digital classroom is
often thought to be a virtualization of classrooms where virtual and immersive tools are part of learning structure and the methods associated with learning. This is not necessarily the case, as it depends on the authors and educators who form their own definition of the term.


 The flipped classroom is an approach where students obtain exposure to content before their classes through instructional videos and other means. In their classes, students deepen their understanding of content through active learning exercises, activities, labs, and other applications. This approach is known as 'flipped teaching', the 'inverted classroom' and 'reverse instruction'. In the flipped classroom, students experience what would have taken place in a traditional classroom (for example, a content-based lecture) in the comfort of their own homes
using modern technologies to assist with self-paced learning.
