I. 校园学习生活 (课程、放假、打工、工作等等)
E.g. Online education over school education
(1)随时性：不局限于某个时间 can be given at any time
(2)随地性：不局限于某个地点 can be given at any place
(3)共享性：任何人只要注册均可享受 available to any one who has registered
E.g. School Education over online education
(1)可以有课堂讨论：discussion in class
(2)可以随时问老师问题：ask a teacher question
(3)有互动：a teacher may adjust easily
I like online education better than the other choice for the following reasons.
Well, first of all, online education means we can have access to it whenever we want either at home or in the library or any other place where we can go online. This means we no longer have to sit in the classroom with lots of other students all at the same time.
You see, I am night person. I tend to go to bed late and get up late. So if the class is in the morning, probably I will miss it. But if it is online, it means I do not have to get up early and drag myself out of bed to travel to my classroom. I can even watch it in my bed.
What’s more online courses give us a chance to watch for more than one time. Sometimes when we sit in a classroom, we may not understand some difficult part very clearly but we cannot rewind the lecturer. However, if it is online, we can play it as many times as we like until we fully understand the lecture. Isn’t it good news?
E.g. Small class over big one
(1)每个人都可以进行练习：plenty of exercises for everyone in class
(2)可以采用多种形式的活动：arrange desks in U-shape or half-a-circle
(3)更多的师生交流：more discussion between teachers and students
E.g. Big class over small one
(1) 交流机会多：have more chances to communicate
(2)人多信息量大、许多想法：get more information, more ideas
(3) 气氛活跃：enjoy good atmosphere in discussion
I prefer a small class atmosphere like a seminar for the following reasons.
Well I am postgraduate student majoring in Ancient Greek Literature. Most of the time we discuss what we have read from the reading list and exchange our ideas. If it is in a small group, it means everybody has the chance to express his/her ideas, which is almost impossible in a big class.
Also, in a small class, we can play out some of the stories that we have read. By acting different roles in the stories, we have a deeper and better understanding of what we have read. But unfortunately it cannot be done in a big classroom. Or you have to wait for a very long time before it is your turn, probably for a whole semester or even longer.
E.g. Yes to mobile
(1)及时传递信息：instant communication, for example, pictures, text, videos
(2)方便娱乐：play games at any time
(3)帮助学习：go online to get information
E.g. No to mobile
(1)上课利用手机发短信聊天：get so distracted as to text messages in class
(2)利用手机作弊：cheat in exams by using a mobile
(3)总换新手机：keep buying new mobiles
In my opinion, students should be allowed to carry mobiles to school.
You see, mobile phones give us quick and instant information. For example, last time I forget my schedule and did not know which class to go to. But unfortunately there is only 20 minutes left before the class. So I just took out my mobile, called one of my classmates and found out which class to go to. The whole thing just cost me 1 minute. It is quick, isn’t it?
Another reason I want say is that mobile phone can help us study. You see, my mobile has the function of going online. There was a time when I had to know the French word for garlic, but too bad, none of my mates knew how to say it in French. But I got hooked up online with my mobile and got the answer from Google within no time.
So it is a great idea to take mobiles to school.
E.g. Open to all students
(1)知识改变命运：get educated in college
(2)增大就业机会：help to get better jobs
(3)提高全社会的素质：help bring about a better society
E.g. Open to some students
(1)社会资源有限，只能培养少数人：to best use our limited educational resources
(2)许多人上大学也不好好读书，是一种浪费：it is a waste of money and time for those who do not work in college
(3)严格的教育培养出高质量的人才：good quality education will help cultivate talents most needed by our society
As far as I am concerned, it is better for everyone to have the chance to go to college or university.上一篇：新东方托福写作语料库:大学是否应帮学生做好择 下一篇：《失落的星球2》Good Job挑战达成条件 第五章
