Can Streaming Become the New Form of Learning?

By: The BitMar Team.

Streaming has become an increasingly popular form of entertainment. Many people have turned to streaming, as their go-to source of Television shows, and movies. However, with the rise of online education, and remote learning, some are now wondering if streaming could become the new form of learning.

One potential benefit of using streaming, as a form of learning, is: the ability to access content from anywhere, at any time. This could be particularly useful for those who have busy schedules, and/or live in remote areas without access to traditional educational institutions. With streaming, students could learn on their time, and at their pace. This makes education more accessible to a wider range of people.

Furthermore, streaming could allow for a more personalized learning experience. With the ability to choose from a wide variety of content, students could find resources that best suit their individual learning styles, and preferences. Additionally, platforms – like: YouTube – already offer a wealth of educational content, in a variety of subjects—from math and science, to history and literature.

Some experts caution that streaming should not replace traditional forms of learning, entirely. In an article, for Forbes, education consultant: Brandon Busteed, notes: that while streaming can be a useful supplement to traditional education, it cannot replace the importance of in-person learning, and human interaction. Busteed argues that online learning is best used in conjunction with face-to-face instruction – rather than as a replacement for it.

However, one study – conducted by the National Home Education Research Institute – found: that homeschoolers scored, on average, 15-30 percentile points higher than their public school counterparts, on standardized academic achievement tests. The study also found: that homeschooled students typically score higher, on college entrance exams, and have higher rates of college acceptance, and graduation.

Moreover, the effectiveness of streaming, as a form of learning, depends largely on the quality, and accuracy, of the content being streamed. Unlike traditional educational institutions, streaming platforms do not have a standardized curriculum, or certification process... meaning: that anyone can create, and upload, educational content. While some content creators are experts, in their fields, and produce high-quality resources, others may provide inaccurate, or incomplete, information. It is important for students to carefully vet the sources of educational content that they consume online, to ensure that they are learning accurate, and reliable, information.

In conclusion, while streaming has the potential to become a valuable tool for learning, it is important for students to critically evaluate the quality, and accuracy, of the educational content that they consume online. With these considerations in mind, streaming could become a powerful tool for expanding access to education, and providing students with personalized learning experiences.
