About e-learning we agree and disagree at the same time. We agree because alot of people live in villages where is almost impossible to reach the school. Not everybody is able to have a car or using the bus so with the e-learning we loseless time with transports and we can even save some money.
We disagree because nowadays there’s a lot of sedentary, people almost don’t get out of home, andthe e-learning contributes to increase the sedentary.
Other thing we don’t agree is that some students never show they are interested in this whole thing ofschool and with the e-learning it would be worse, since they didn’t even need to get out of home, they think they can miss the classes easily, and that is whathappens.
We also think that the e-learning is not so good because we can’t have pratical classes and those classes are very important to the development we wantto have in the area we are.
Of course a doctor that previously has had pratical classes is much better than a doctor that didn’t have those pratical classes.
