Online Learning should be imposed in the Philippines
 W.A. GarciaThis generation is ready to experience the new realms of education, and thereforeit must be introduced to online learning primarily because it promotes self-learning which can beone step away from spoon feeding. Spoon feeding per se, not only exists in education, but in themodern society. This is because technology provides human necessities in an instant. With this,it is believable that now is the time to twist the equation. It is the time to dichotomize humanleniency into independence. On that note, education would be one of the finest avenues to starteradicating this culture.In reality, there is no actual field that can prove whether or not it is effective, butthat can be just the right reason to promulgate e-learning for the most reason that, given thecontext of the Philippines, classroom learning in public schools cannot anymore facilitate alearning environment wherein these children are actually in their classrooms. Even though it isarguable that it cannot be affordable, it is not a problem to allow e-learning per se to be in thehands of most people in the society. It is not, and cannot be a problem for the most reason thatthese children, by and large, know how to use computers effectively. This is reflective with theratio of 7 out of 10 public school students know how to use the computer, and the internet per se primarily in internet cafes.Moreover, in the status quo, this would allow children to spend more time withtheir family, and at the same time, these children wouldn¶t be sacrificing their time for schoolcommitments. These commitments involve their child¶s social life and involvement in schoolactivities which are, however, achievable even if a child is in home-based learning. In fact, e-learning will allow the child to be exposed in the modern world and find his own interest. It willallow the child to choose his own events of aspiration; it will allow the child to be morecompetitive because in this type of setting, his study style does not suffer. He will be free tochoose his learning style in his own way; he can be free to learn visually and kinesthetically,unlike in the classroom set up, his learning individuality will suffer because in classrooms,teachers cannot actually stick with the deficiency of one student, they confront it as a whole, and

they consider the class as a whole. That is why, in the developmental aspect of learning, e-learning advances in this argument because it does not only teaches a student to be independent, but it also teaches him multi-tasking, learning style implementation and time management.Let us characterize the school commitments children commonly have. First, theorganizations ± these are considerably related towards the interest of the student, which can also be a factor to distract a student towards his studies. Scenarios, in reality, appear to showorganizations to be an improvement aid in nature, however, it can create damage towards one¶sindividuality. In fact, these are one of the breeding grounds of bullying, other than classrooms, or institutions per se. Unnoticed, the harms of bullying are drastic and intensified from time totime. These can cause traumatic disorders, and what¶s worst, neglect of education.Another would be their actual social life. This is reflective in one¶s academic andextra-curricular performance. We have to admit that parents don¶t actually know what kind of  people their child meets at school. They don¶t actually even know what their child does whenthey are with their friends. Peer and social pressure is now at hand. At worst forms, peer  pressure is destructive. In the status quo, children ages 12-16 nowadays involve themselves inliquor and cigarette smoking. At bizarre ranges, some students even expose themselves to illegaldrugs to ironically do their task at school. These activities gravely affect students¶ performancein school. Common cases would be a drinking session which would end up with a teenage girl pregnant. This is known as unwanted pregnancy. And this is one of the harms your childrenmight encounter in the future if you would not support e-learning, which, however, should be properly monitored by parents¶ discretion. And therefore, this is why interactive learning is notactually helpful in nature.E-learning, however, has its imperfections. To sum it up, this harm is known asMass media proliferation. This is where the issue of fornification lies, this is where socialviolence is seen by children, this is where children actually become targets of misconduct, cyber  bullying, and sexual abuse. All of which, at the end of the day, can be actually controlled by the parent. It is not primarily because you can device the internet settings, it is because in e-learning, parents can actually monitor their child¶s learning activity. They can actually be the veryteachers. And well, in fact, other than that, there is one factor, which to be exact, is how theyraise their child ± it is practically why computer usage is an issue between the parent and the
