  范文:

  With the advent of computer technology,especially the internet, more and more students choose to take their coursesonline for a brand-new learning experience. On the other hand, the traditionalclassroom learning seems to be facing more challenges. Is online educationfeasible? Yes. And probably good as well. Will classroom learning be displaced?I believe not.

  随着计算机技术,特别是互联网,越来越多的学生选择他们的课程在网上一个全新的学习体验。另一方面,传统的课堂学习似乎面临着更多的挑战。在线教育是可行的吗?是的。而且可能不错。课堂学习会被取代吗?我相信不是。

  To be frank, online education providesfresh learning experience unheard of before. The most distinct benefit comesfrom a flexible schedule. Students, especially adults with part-time jobs oreven full-time jobs, take full advantage of this point. They are now free tochoose any program that fits into their daily schedule. Compared with thetraditional idea of “going to school”, this is better illustrated as “theschool is going to you”. Another obvious advantage is the multi-media learningplatform. Computer technology promises vivid short plays, detailed lectures andeven games designed for the course, all of which appeal to students a greatdeal.

  坦率地说,网络教育提供了新鲜闻所未闻的学习经验。最明显的好处来自于一个灵活的时间表。学生,尤其是成年人兼职或者全职工作,充分利用这一点。他们现在自由选择任何程序,适合日常时间表。相比之下,“上学”的传统观念,这是更好地说明“学校要你”。另一个明显的优势是多媒体学习平台。计算机技术承诺生动的戏剧,详细的讲座,甚至游戏设计课程,所有这些吸引学生。

  However, it is clear to me that onlineeducation has certain innate setbacks which render it unable to compete withthe traditional classroom learning. Firstly, communication is very limitedonline. The opponent may argue chat-rooms are great tools. However,face-to-face communication can never be replaced, because it conveysinformation besides the words that form a sentence, but also intonations andbody language. Facial expressions and gestures all facilitate understandingduring a conversation. Suppose a student finds part of the lecture baffling, hecan directly ask the professor in the classroom and probably they willcommunicate with the help of notes, pictures, blackboards and their bodylanguage. These tools are simply impossible to combine during an online course.

  然而,我很清楚,在线教育有一定的天生的挫折使它无法与传统的课堂学习。首先,网上交流是非常有限的。对方可能会说网上聊天室是伟大的工具。然而,面对面的交流是不可替代的,因为它传达的信息除了单词组成一个句子,而且语调和肢体语言。面部表情和手势都便于理解对话。假设一个学生发现演讲令人困惑的一部分,他可以直接问教授在课堂上,可能他们会与笔记的帮助下,图片、黑板和他们的肢体语言。这些工具仅仅是不可能结合在一个在线课程。

  Yet another important downside of onlineeducation is that it has the potential of turning students into negativelearners, because they do not and cannot participate in classroom activities.Since everyone is learning by his or her own on a computer, chances are slimthat they can form real-life study groups, which in a traditional setting doprojects and researches together. For example, if a student enrolls in anonline drama class, it’s natural to play a part in the drama to gain in-depthperspectives on this topic. However, the student is unable to join the activityonline, simply because it is not feasible. Gradually, the drama topic seems tobe drifting away from the student because he is not actively involved in thelearning process. A traditional classroom setting, on the other hand, providesa lot more opportunities for students to take an active role in the learningprocess.

  然而在线教育的另一个重要的缺点是,它把学生变成消极学习者的潜力,因为他们不,不能参与课堂活动。因为每个人都是由他或她自己的电脑上学习,机会渺茫,他们可以形成现实的学习小组,这在传统的设置一起做项目和研究。例如,如果一个学生参加了一个在线戏剧类,它的自然参与戏剧获得深入的关于这一主题的观点。然而,学生不能参加网上活动,因为它是不可行的。渐渐地,戏剧的主题似乎是脱离学生因为他不是积极参与学习过程。传统的课堂环境,另一方面,为学生提供了更多的机会学习过程中积极的作用。

  To sum up, online education is fascinatingin some ways and does offer different learning experience. However, it cannotand should not replace traditional classroom learning, due to the lack ofcommunication and participation. A classroom always remains the best place tolearn.

  总之,网络教育在某些方面很吸引人,并提供不同的学习经验。然而,它不能也不应该取代传统的课堂学习,由于缺乏沟通和参与。教室总是最好的地方去学习。
