Our education becomes digitized, So more students are wondering what purpose lectures serve???? Especially when notes and slides are uploaded to student portals and lecture recordings are available on YouTube. .....So what exactly is a lecture and why should its Mandatory to attend this?..... And how can a student maximize their learning potential?
1. If You Skip, You may miss important stuff:
Teachers often use class discussion to enhance critical thinking skills of a student. Teachers regularly have quizzes, assistance and they explain new assignments, important tips and tricks and give lecture notes. These are all important things for your studies. If you think that your classmates will tell you after class what was assigned is a good idea.......but there is a big chance that he/she probably won't explain the way teacher did. In this way, you might be setting yourself up for failure by having incomplete information about the topic. Remember, taking your own notes during a class is more useful than getting a copy of friend’s notes. If you focus during class properly, you will definitely understand the concept in a better way and It will save your time in future.
2. Discipline and time management skills:
Regular class attendance requires discipline, time management skills and these skills are helpful for any career path you choose. Presence in class also increases a student’s interaction with a variety of faculty members. Students seem to be aware that class attendance is important. In a recent survey, we get to know that there is a strong relationship between the number of absences and the final course grade. Students miss classes for a variety of reasons. Some of the most frequent reasons are because they need to complete other course work, they find the class boring, are unwell/sick etc.
3. Make a Good Impression on Your Teacher:
Attending all or most of your class lectures is one of the best ways to have good impression on your teacher. Some teachers will interrupt those students who skip class a lot, which is not a good impression in front of your teacher. Remember, your faculties are reserve about 10% of your grade for attendance, which means if you don't come for class, your grade B- could easily become a C-. So your attendance will show sincerity.
Being in school every day gives an opportunity to learn more about their school and scholarship and Olympiad programs.
5. Being part of the school community:
Being part of the school community a student can learn how to be a good citizen by participating in the school programs like- learning valuable social skills, and developing a broader world view.
Positive school communities create opportunities for children, families and staff to feel included. They make help and support accessible and find lots of ways to invite people to take up the support being offered. They help everyone benefit from understanding experiences and cultures that may be different to their own.
Conclusion: Before turning off the alarm clock in the morning, think about what you will have to pay as a result of your decision. Whatever path you choose, it will definitely affect your future.
