"Is online education as effective as traditional on-campus schooling?"? Topic: Education case studies

Question: My class will be starting a short debate "competition" amongst the various allocated groups, and my group happened to stumble on this debate motion. (refer to the title) My group is the PROPOSITION, and I am the FIRST speaker of the proposition team. Now, I am aware of the roles which the first speaker of the the Proposition must do: Mainly,as the 1st Affirmative, I should: • define the topic. • present the affirmatives team line. • outline briefly what each speaker in their team will talk about. • present the first half of the affirmative case. * I found this on a random website, and I know what I am required to do on the whole, BUT I do not understand how I am supposed to LINK my motion topic to those instructions above. Can someone help me by giving me a set of clear instructions on how I should start about writing my First Speaker Speech, and how do I state my points, which key words should I define and explain on most importantly, and how the debate speech format goes by? And also the number of factors which I need to emphasize on? * I meant, for example with this current debate motion which I have posted about, I as the first speaker, do I have to elaborate on two main factors on the effectiveness of online education, eg: "More independent learning", AND, "each student can study at their own pace". OR do I only elaborate on one point? Eg: "More independent learning" ONLY, while I leave the rest of the factors to my team mates? I am desperately in need of help! Oh, and if it IS possible, could you give some advice to what my other team members can do too? Or some form of help in the debating area? this is the first time I am doing this and I do not have any experience on this, thus I might seem a little ignorant over this matters, but do pardon me.

he difference between online degree and a traditional degree is that in online degree you can attend your classes anywhere you like and have no strict time to go to a class but in traditional school you need to go to class on specific timings and also you can't repeat that class where as in online you can. But when you are opting online classes you should make sure that the courses are accredited from good organization. If you can go to traditional school then its always best thing to go for but if due to any reason you can't then online education is always a good option. It should be different but due to some scam online schools others get degraded. Employer tend to differentiate on the basis of the degree but my personal opinion is if you have done you education no matter from online or traditional and know your job well then no employer can say no to you. So if you are doing you degree online make sure that the college is accredited from reputed organization and is known for quality of education it provides online.

Faithe Originally Answered: Is home schooling more effective than public schooling?
I'm a little late, but here are two links on how to write an argumentative essay: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/685/05/ http://www.roanestate.edu/owl/argument.html Argumentative essays are a VERY common assignment. You are assigned a debatable topic and you need to research it and argue your side. Debatable topics are controversial by nature, but that doesn't mean that educators should never assign them to avoid stepping on toes. This is a lot like any other controversial topic. Abortion, gun control, the death penalty. Sounds as if you put this off a bit too long. Nobody is going to write the rough draft for you. I don't know where the defensive folks get the idea that there is only one "correct" answer to this question (homeschooling). Logic would tell you that the answer would be different for different individuals. Since a *very* small portion of the population is homeschooled, it is impossible to state that homeschooling is always more effective for every student. You could think of it this way, would it be better if ALL schools were closed and homeschooling were the only alternative? Would it be more effective for the 98% of kids who are currently not homeschooled? I doubt it, especially if their parents refuse to let them investigate and debate a controversial topic, ;-) The attitude that no one may every question homeschooling just reinforces the stereotype that homeschooling parents are doing so to control their children. ANY topic can be questioned. That is the point of an argumentative essay....and critical thinking skills. If I were a homeschooling parent, I'd expect my kids to learn to write an argumentative essay. I'd let them choose the topic. No topic would be off limits. But the point would be, could you argue your side? If your research is good and you argue your point well, and write well, you've done well on the assignment. BTW., this is an OPEN forum, where there is no community guideline that only pro-homeschooling users may participate, even if some would like to bully and insult the others out. I wonder why. I'd call myself neutral on this topic. I think either could be argued. There are plenty of limitations to the research on homeschooling, google that. But clearly there are well educated homeschooled students. So go for it.

Well, your first step should be to pick a side to argue. Argumentative essays are a common assignment and that professors or teachers don't necessarily expect you to pick the politically correct argument to defend. All that said, I'd find this a difficult essay to write. That's because I believe there is no universally most effective form of education for all students. It's an individual choice and what works best for the student. At the best universities there are publicly, privately and homeschooled students. Same in jobs. The least successful seem to want to argue their inherent superiority out of insecurity. So I'd go about this by arguing what would be most effective for me and why. All the statistics and opinions in the world don't make that much difference. There are inherent problems in statistically comparing the 3% of students who are homeschooled to the 97% who are not, particularly if you consider study size and self-selection. Studies have huge refusal rates. You end up having to look at this as individuals and argue that.
Faithe Originally Answered: Is home schooling more effective than public schooling?
First, let me just tell you that no one method of schooling (public, private, online, home) is better for all students or all situations. Each child and family situation is unique. There are pros and cons for each. A family needs to decide based upon their own situation, which method would be best for them. You need to compare and contrast by writing out your pros and cons for both homeschool and public school that lead you to believe that public schooling is more effective. We aren't going to do your paper for you. You have to do that yourself. Try picking a few key differences to back up your argument then make each one it's own paragraph. Be as specific as you can using solid research, not just emotion or anecdotes. Then tie it all together again in a final, concluding paragraph that restates your argument. Also, if this is due tomorrow, why did you wait until today to get started?

Conradine Originally Answered: What is the qualitative difference between a university degree and a non-traditional education?
The qualitative difference? There isn't one, necessarily. Despite the amount of formal education I've had, much of what I use professionally I learned through self-study and experience and interactions with people who knew more than I did. I actually think that's ideal--we should aspire to be life-long learners, no matter where formal education ends. The advantage that formal education has, though, is that it's something employers can evaluate objectively. Anyone can say in a cover letter "Through self-study and experience, I've learned how to be a transformational leader and develop and implement effective strategies for my organization." Doesn't make it so. On the other hand, "I hold a Master's of Business Administration with a concentration in Strategy and Leadership"--well, that's pretty easy to verify.
Conradine Originally Answered: What is the qualitative difference between a university degree and a non-traditional education?
As you move up you need a combination of both experience and education. A traditional university degree is accredited, widely recognized (especially important for foreign recognition) etc... For entry level positions, you need a university degree because what else do you have? Entry level positions gets your foot in the door. A university degree also will show that you have some level of dedication and drive considering you did earn the 4yr degree. Plus it will teach you the basics of what you need to know (vs trying to learn all the terminology etc.. on the job). A lot of places won't have the time hold your hand too much these days.
