As education gradually moves online, some issues, especially regarding resources, still remain. How can we help solve this gap?
The pandemic has presented challenges for students, educators, and parents. Chief among them, how do we keep students learning without the resources we rely on? While remote education has become the norm, issues remain that need to be addressed. By tackling them, we can make the future of education brighter for all.
Stick to a schedule. Schools have adapted asynchronous learning models where students choose when to log on and study, but this allows too much time for procrastination and disengagement. Therefore, remote learning must become more formalized, with dedicated learning times, tighter deadlines, and resources like Huntington Study Hall to encourage accountability.
Ensure students understand remote learning tools. To maximize remote learning, teachers must provide students with guidance and training on how to use remote learning tools effectively.
Seek alternative sources of 1:1 engagement. Class size has always been an important consideration, and it’s even more pronounced as classes have moved online. By its nature, remote learning reduces students’ engagement with teachers and classmates. To help, parents must look to virtual small groups and 1:1 tutoring options like HuntingtonHelps LIVE.
While education is evolving, it’s likely that remote learning will maintain a key role. By tackling resulting issues head-on, we can proactively keep education continuous for all students.
