The process of modernization gives birth to educational methods diversified such as traditional class, field lesson, online course, and so forth. Accordingly, when it comes to education, there has always been plentiful of discussions about it. For example, which is more beneficial for students between classroom learning and field-based studying? Personally speaking, learning outside is do better because students can gain knowledge more vividly and initiatively. Following reasons elaborated upon my upper point.
To begin with, field lesson is of great help to students to understand what they have learned on books. In terms of students, studying from teaching material, not only are they bald and abstract, but also not easily be acceptable. While combining the theory with practice, it is conducive to students to understand and utilize through observation, sound, taste and touch. To some extents, the significance of studying in the real scene cannot be exaggerated. For example, a physics course, a teacher inform students of light component and refraction. If this class was a field lesson, students can water in air and then observe the different color of a rainbow outside. Under this situation, students can understand the conception and principle theory of light. By contrast, in the class, through books, the light formation cannot be imaged easily and vigorously. Consequently, field lesson contributes to students in-deep studying and understanding.
Secondary, field lesson is do better in stirring up students' inquisitiveness. Commonly, the regular means of teaching in class bored students, and by contrast, field lesson shows an amusing way in front of them. Generally speaking, interest is the best teacher. Once forming a habit due to interest and hobby, students can learn spontaneously. There is an example to my mind. I still remember one biology course when the teacher took us to marine park. We had seen the animals, such as polar bears, penguins, sharks, jellyfishes, which were introduced in books. The feeling of close encounter quite differed from that of learning. All the things--the cute shapes, fascinating characteristics and peculiar sound of those animals—incredibly attracted us. After that trip, our class built up study groups to learn the marine world actively. What fantastic the field lesson is.
Some people consider that it is more efficiency of studying in classroom than of field lesson, because field-based learning is likely to distract students, especially for them who are lower self-control. Besides, taking part in outside class, they would hardly gain the relevant knowledge, and also spend time on what they should spend on school in the same time. Virtually, there is no evidence showing that daily learning in school is more effective than outside. However, students’ could not focus on the knowledge in practice, they cannot concentrate in class as well. At least, outside learning gives students more direct perception about what they learned.
In a nutshell, field lesson impart knowledge to students profoundly and vividly. Simultaneously, this method stimulates students’ delight in studying and cultivate their enthusiasm. Therefore, field lesson is important for students to acquire knowledge.
