“To use models or not to use models?”

All models are mostly useful, people have been using models to help them learn and understand things they haven’t done before. They could use models as a guidance to help them accomplish something. However, there can be some flaws and hinders in models which makes us wonder if to use models or not to use models. The models can be designed in different ways to help us understand or could be difficult to understand but is easy to remember. They may have different purpose and so they have different designs and graphics. Some models are important and is needed for education. The models below will elaborate and show why it is helpful and hinders.

Helps :
This model is colorful and there are only a few words to make the readers easier to remember. It is clear as the graphics and the color it used is simple. It gives us the most essential words and it shows the main key of this model. The circle at the midpoint of the model shows the main topic of this model. Which makes us know clearly of what this model is about.

Hinders :
It looks easy but it can also be difficult to read. Some words are not put in place and so you would have to look at it side ways to read it. This model is not detailed and we may not know the definition of those words, even if it’s easy to remember the words, it may not change anything if we don’t understand the definition of it. It’s also a one person perspective and will be hard to read it with many people.

Helps :
This model is made for us to easily understand and gave us sentences to read. This model is also easy to understand and remember. The designs are clean and there are images to show what things are. Which helps us recognize the words. The title of model is big and clear for readers. It also tells you where to start reading and finishing at. It’s not a one person perspective.
Hinders :

Most readers will read things from the top to bottom. It could be better if you can start reading from the top. In other models, it doesn’t tell you where you should start because it’s natural for you to read things from the top.

Helps :
This model is easy to understand, there are relevant definitions. It’s a one person perspective. It tells us that these 3 keys are very closely related to Stakeholders. It’s simplify.

Hinders :

I do think we should use models as it helps us understand the topics more. A clean graphic with colours could help you memorise things better. Some models may have more hinders than helps but you could always find other models with the same topic.
