Face-to-face learning dates back to the oldest form of education, where the students and teachers interact directly with each other. This form of education has been a bedrock of the schooling system worldwide.
The advantages of face-to-face learning techniques have been many; the most important one can be attributed to the accountability factor. Students were more responsive to every task and question put forward by teachers.
In a similar way, students felt a great sense of attachment to the teacher and could interact with them freely. The interaction with classmates is more, and the topics of discussion vary from academic to sports, extracurricular and others. Greater discipline and competition are instilled in every student through face-to-face learning methods.
Since the COVID pandemic hit the globe in 2019, the traditional method of face-to-face learning took a downturn. Schools and colleges have shifted to online modes of teaching and communication. Even though the shift was a bit patchy, technological advancements have made parents and students more optimistic about online classes. Direct live interaction has now been substituted by virtual live interaction. While many schools are opening up, the future seems to be more promising in the hybrid model, where the traditional and online teaching mode goes hand in hand.
