Education, employment and transportation of the future (approx. 1000)
How will the education, employment and transportation change in the future and how they will be in the future? This could be a big thing.
First of all, there could be some slight change on education in the future. As we all know, we use ‘paper and pencils’ a lot for education, especially schools. There are three aspects where school facilities and equipment have already improved – administration, teachers and students. Electronic registration is very common in schools nowadays. This allows schools to contact children’s parents immediately if there is an emergency or their child is absent unexpectedly. Teachers can also check student’s exam results, period grades or their personal information and details, e.g. medical condition, allergies, detentions…etc. Students always benefit from having a wide range of learning environment on the internet. Visual learning environment is one of the good examples, VLE is a very useful and conveniently thing that allows students and teachers access to any files or data about the school. Students can always download presentation slides on the internet as soon as the teacher uploaded them up. This helps a lot when the student was absent or anything that she didn’t understand during the lesson, she can always download presentation slides to revise and ask teacher for further help. Students could also access to any school sharing files on the common sharing hard drives. In addition, teachers always gain from preparing handouts and materials for the coming lessons. This reduces the teacher’s time in order to produce a huge amount of copies for the entire class. All these additional factors are already being used nowadays. Regarding to paper-and-pencil, ordinary stationary will cause our hands very tired and the outcome of our work could be messy and scrappy. People sometimes write scribbles on paper and it can be irritating. For example, I am using a lined-paper to write out my 1000-word-essay, obviously, this is a big prep and I would not want to write any scribbles on it as soon as it reduces marks. I might want to use pencil so I could erase any mistakes I have done on the paper, but I know that it does not really make a big difference from using paper and pen. Because there is one thing that will make your head feel dizzy unless I am writing my essay out with a computer. I would not want to write on every line of the paper, maybe every other line would work better, and otherwise, if I missed out any vital sentence, I wouldn’t have enough space to add some more words in between. This always happens when I missed out something in the middle of the paragraph, I want to add something between of the sentences but I will always end up with a ‘scrappy’ piece of writing. These shows how inconvenient without a laptop to do writing work. On laptop, we can use word processor to write documents. We can use QWERTY key board to type in our sentences or our work rapidly. This is far better than writing on paper by hands. On the computer, we can do whatever we want – format everything or particular line by using backspace, correct spelling mistakes by using word dictionary, spell-checker, grammar corrector.
