In a traditional Brick & Mortar school setting, the teacher teaches on the blackboard or does dictations in front of the class using which the students prepare notes that will help them in the learning process. Although this process of teaching is widely used for decades, this type of teaching method has its drawbacks.
What are the Drawbacks of Traditional Classroom Teaching methods?
1. Memorization without Understanding
In the brick & Mortar schools, the main goal of the student is scoring good marks in tests so he/she memorizes the concept without understanding its implementation in the real world.
2. Dependency on Teachers
The students are totally dependent upon their teachers for providing the study material in the form of notes. The student doesn’t make any effort to learn something new on their own.
3. Different Pace of learning
Every student has a different pace of learning some of them learn instantly while others take some time to grasp the concept. Thus students with a slow learning pace will get left behind.
4. Trouble Approaching the Teacher
There are some students who are of shy & introverted nature they find it difficult to express themselves in front of the rest of the class. Thus they did not understand the concept properly as they didn’t resolve their doubts.
5. High Cost
The fees of traditional schools are very high which poses a problem for families who are suffering from financial problems.
