Many people believe that the current system of both teachers and students in the classroom will no longer exist by the year 2050. To what extent do you agree with this opinion?

With the invention of the Internet and all its possibilities, the traditional educational setting of a room full of students with a teacher standing in front giving instruction, has been challenged. It has been predicted that
this
style of teaching will soon
vanish but
Accept comma addition
vanish, but
I’m quite confident that the traditional
classroom
may diminish but will never disappear. For university students, it is certainly true that there are numerous benefits

of
distance learning. Lectures can be viewed on a computer from anywhere the Internet is available and often whenever it is convenient. Nowadays
this
is becoming more common, and the trend will most likely continue to grow.
However
, distance learning is not really feasible when it comes to elementary and high school students who lack the maturity

self-study and need face-to-face interaction with a teacher. There are other drawbacks to eliminating the traditional
classroom

For example
, it is difficult for students to engage in
classroom
discussions with each other through a computer and
as a result
the
classroom
dynamic will probably suffer due to the absence of energy in the lessons. What is more, without a
classroom
atmosphere, students, who get most of their knowledge from the teacher, will miss out on learning from each other. It is
also
important to remember that courses
such
as chemistry and biology are interactive and require a lab setting, so distance learning is not really possible. In conclusion, the elimination of
classroom
learning will continue, but
this
trend will be limited to mostly adult education and courses which do not require an interactive academic environment. I’m quite sure that thirty years from now students and teachers will still be spending time together in the
classroom
