Busting The Educational Myths About Learning And Colleges.

As we are entering the next educational year, we need to remember what is good for you to have a great future.

You must know what is necessary to have in a school or college. You hear a lot about education and believe in their sayings.

But there are some educational myths that need to be busted.



Here's the list of educational myths that need to be busted :


Educational Myth 1. You learn only through the classroom.



It's been decades that we are seeing lectures held in classrooms. It's easy to adapt to what we see in day-to-day life.

But today online lectures are taking a good kick. It's an educational myth that you learn only through the classroom. We have to go through the new trends and keep ourselves updated.

Learning through online lectures is becoming normal now. As long as you are having full concentration on education,

it doesn't matter if the lecture is being held in the classroom or it is online. Learning through online lectures is even more convenient as it can be learned anywhere and has no boundation about the location.


Educational Myth 2. More Money Means Better Schools/colleges.



Many of us think, more money means better schools/colleges. Many of the parents still belives if their kid is in school which has higher fees means they are giving a high level of education. This is one of the most believed educational myths in our society. The quality of education mostly depends on the lecturer and the surrounding. Let's consider if you are admitted to one of the best colleges with generous fees, but the faculty is not well experienced, then he/she will not able to deliver proper knowledge on the topic. On the other hand, if you are studying in a nearby college, which is not so famous, but the staff is well educated, he/she will be able to teach in a much more interesting and understandable way.


Educational Myth 3. Students prefer face-to-face interaction, not online teaching.



It's the biggest educational myth that students prefer face-to-face more than online teaching. But looking towards the benefits it clearly shows students prefer online teaching more than face-to-face.

Online learning adds flexibility and better time management. It not only improves virtual communication but also helps to learn new skills and that too in your preferred location.


Educational Myth 4. Degrees and diplomas obtained through online education are not valid.



In India distance education obtained from the institutions/Universities approved by U.G.C. have the same value as of colleges and university.

All distance learning degrees awarded with recognition from the Distance Education Council (DEC) are valid if you are applying for central government jobs. So don't go with the educational myth that every distance or online degrees are not valid.


Educational Myth 5. First year doesn’t count.




This is the most heard sentence that the first year doesn't count. Your score depends on how active you are in your academics. Be it the first year or the final year, your overall score describes your learning graph. So to maintain the overall graph you have to concentrate on your first year too. Learning never goes to waste, then why skip the first year and directly jump to the next stage. Put some effort in the first year and remember basics are important to grasp the entire study.


Educational Myth 6. Improving attendance does not improve student outcomes.
