More than 168 million school children globally missed out on learning in class, as schools remain shut indefinitely. Moreover, the uncertainty lingering around this lockdown has made the industry chaotic, forcing stakeholders to think beyond the box. Mere online learning did not serve the purpose of bringing quality learning; it widened the gap. “With every day that goes by, children unable to access in-person schooling fall further and further behind, with the most marginalized paying the heaviest price”, quotes Henrietta Fore, UNICEF Executive Director.
A model that’s more than just about connecting teachers with students is what this sector needs. The devastating consequences of students’ learning and well-being due to the school closures are no longer a secret. The extended school closure has forced students to remain devoid of essential elements required to flourish in the present and future. Online learning remains just a medium, not an enabler. Education ministries are making efforts to make in-class learning happen at home.
Smart online class, bridging the loopholes of online learning
Students studying from home might not always remain at the top of their game. In fact, for many, it still is a vacation. Parents, especially the working class, have little to no time to give their child’s education during online learning. Keeping this in mind, the smart online class has surfaced to mitigate the devastating effects of the pandemic. Not only does this model bring quality learning sitting at home, but it is a massive breather for teachers and parents alike. Teachers during online learning have suffered a great deal in the absence of a proper structure. As a result, their skills fell short, and the tension to bring results kept on mounting.
On the other hand, parents cannot always help their children with their homework or prepare for exams. Smart online classes with their unique features have solved the modern-day problem of effective learning. One of the unique features of this mode is, even when the pandemic is over, schools can keep this structure to bring long-term efficiency and avoid any future disruption as smart learning enables a hybrid model too.
