As we, humans are currently facing the world pandemic, known as Coronavirus. There are no possibilities for students to learn their respective courses offline from schools, colleges, etc., like how they normally learn. Since this pandemic stays longer than expected and we have no idea how long it will continue to spread its deadliest virus, the government has no choice but to find an alternative for all the students to start learning somehow and we all luckily happen to live in the 20 centuries where we can easily make use of the great technologies that are being introduced to us to help us continue learning our respective courses.
What should one think about the online course for kids?
We definitely should feel grateful and of course, should never take anything for granted! If we live in the 18 century or earlier years and face the same pandemic that we are facing today, we may not have the opportunity to study online or study at all and will stay idle for years, and automatically our brains will lose their capacity to learn new things and will slow down the ability to grasp the information. So, I do think that the online course for kids is amazing simply because they get to continue learning. Obviously, all online learners will face the pros and cons of learning online but this does not mean that online learning is terrible. For small children/kids, learning online may be a little difficult because you must probably know why, its hard to give anything they possibly want, whenever they want and if we do not fulfill, the tantrums they show and the noises they make it literally troublesome. So, to make a kid learn his school books and do his homework by joining a virtual class will certainly add more work to the parents. Kids will never agree to join a virtual class on its own, a parent should sit next to their kids to make sure that they do not do any mischiefs or do not touch and play around with the wires and what not kids do to avoid studying. Yes, for some parents who couldn’t afford a smartphone, laptop or anything to help them take the virtual class and communicate with the rest of the students and teacher is a huge disadvantage for that particular student. In order to help maintain and balance out, all schools need to take proper data about how much percent of their students can take virtual classes and how much cannot afford and according to their data, if they are fewer students who have no access. The school authority needs to take up something to help all their students learn through the online classes.
There may be more inconvenience coming up each different day but at least every student should be glad that we all get to learn our lessons. We parents need to make our kids understand that life is not always about only the good things, sometimes we have to face whatever hardship comes our way. If you teach them these lessons, your kids will stand strong in their future and will thank you for these lessons.
