Even in education, traditional schooling has hardly
changed even with the clear evidence of a digital
world. Reflect on how some teachers confine their
teaching to the board talk-test method
The Features of Traditional Education
1. The students have to attend classes in the
university campus according to the schedule.
2. You have direct contact with the teachers and can
always ask the questions.
3. You have also contact with the classmates and to
discuss with them different things.
The features of online/digital education

time according to their own schedule.
2. Online studying is not very expensive.
3. The locations does not play huge role and the

In the field of education. A huge generation gap
also exists and it will continue to widen unless some
changes are adopted at the proper time.
The educational curriculum in the Philippines is low
compared to other countries.
The reason why other countries are ahead of us in
the educational aspect is because of the K-12.
K-12 is a prolonged educational that allows the
students to learn more advanced subjects.
Adding K12 to the curriculum will enhance the
education of the country.
The adoption of the program (K-12) is
a riposte on ten-year basic education
cycle that engendered half-baked
graduates. With the old curriculum,
overseas Filipino workers are not
automatically recognized as
professionals in other countries
because they consider the ten-year
education program as deficient and
In peasant third world countries where schools don’t
have technology facilities, it is understandable that the
transition to digital education may take time. But given
the rapid emergence of digital technology, at times
referred to as information and communication
technology(ICT), there is the need to prepare for
bridging the digital gap in the society.
ICT can be defined as the use of hardware
and software for efficient management of
information. ICT refers to the forms of
technology that are used to transmit, store,
create, share or exchange particular task.

Given the speed of ICT for change, growth, innovation,
it becomes critical that teachers understand the gap
that may be perceived between them and the new
generation of learners.
Even in communication, sending a written letter has
become tedious with the advent of emailing and web-
camera face-to-face communication.
Since the new generations are expected to face a future
professional challenge of a digital world ahead of them,
technology-supported skills need to be taught in
schools today, or else schools will become a white

needs, new learners may lose appreciation of the
educational system, and drop out school, as surveys
