Human touch versus virtual world
Corona has forced us to maintain distance. We in the real world are as good as being in the virtual world. Have you thought how this forced situation is affecting our relationships, between members of the family, among friends and all the more the teacher-student relationship? Let us discuss the present and the effect this transformation may have on our future interactions.
Education system has been severely transformed from the chalk and duster mode to online mode. Students and teachers no longer can connect in the same authentic manner as they used to get connected prior to the advent of the pandemic. The pandemic has seriously brought about a huge change in human interaction. Distance has even made communication difficult with full authenicity. Teacher's nowadays conduct online classes and student's speak over microphone attached to the earphones or on speaker's to communicate with the teacher's to clarify doubts. Teacher's find strange to teach on online mode as they miss the human experience. They experience as if they are talking to a mirror rather than teaching to student's. Its high time to get adapted to every available means to sustain our daily lives but it seems impossible to fully adapt to the virtual world. The virtual world seems modern and fashionable and also in trend but with it comes a huge number of limitations which could only be alleviated only and only by the existence of human touch and experience.
