ABSTRACT

This report is based on the attitude of youths in Tacirua East towards traditional methods of learning. It is aimed at determining whether youths of an urban community are supportive of traditional methods of learning or would be against it. Library and web research will be carried out to get some background information in relation to traditional learning methods. 30 questionnaires will be distributed amongst youths in Tacirua East who are within the 15-24 age range.It is expected that a large number of youths will not be in favor of traditional learning methods. One of the conclusions can be made is that since technology is so advanced and is used more frequently that youths are more involved in technology based learning than in traditional methods of learning.
