Are you trying to adapt to eschool? In the wake of COVID-19, there’s a new school format for you to learn about.
Educators everywhere are trying to adapt to remote learning, hybrid classes, and closed schools. Our entire educational system was restructured, and everyone is trying to figure it out.
It goes without saying that COVID-19 and school don’t play well together. Cramming children together in physical locations causes rapid spread for normal illnesses, like chickenpox or a cold.
When it comes to COVID-19, the stakes are even higher. That’s why we’ve assembled a guide to eschool and our thoughts on whether it’s here to stay.
In the past, online schools held a certain stigma. Getting your degree online was subpar. It carried the same classist stigma as a community college, and it was an association many preferred to avoid.
Then, students everywhere had to adapt to a new school format. Everyone was ‘getting their degree online’. This was true for adult students, but remote learning was also implemented for young children.
Eschool is hard on parents and children. It doesn’t have the same childcare capacity, which can make things even harder on working parents.
However, many parents enjoy being able to supervise their child’s education. They may not be directly responsible, but they can see child-teacher interactions. Instead, they know what’s being taught and how their child responds.
Closed schools often signaled one thing: stalled learning. Whether it was sickness or a snow day, not being able to attend equaled no progress.
Accessibility was also a major issue in rural communities. With limited educational opportunities, students were often stuck in a ‘take what you can get’ situation.
Now, students can access vast course libraries from anywhere. In areas where location, transportation, and selection are issues, students will have the world at their fingertips.
If educational facilities embrace remote learning, distance doesn’t have to factor in anymore. This is true whether you’re a third-grader or a sophomore in college.
However, it’s important to note that not everyone has broadband Internet. For those with satellite Internet or nonexistent technology, hybrid classes are impossible.
Investing in expensive technology is a necessary requirement of eschool. This is a financial barrier that many families aren’t able to overcome, and calculating the cost of this new school format is tricky.
Tailoring The Approach
Premier learning solutions are different for everyone. Some neurodivergent students struggle without in-person interactions. Other students feel lonely without the social opportunities in-person classes bring.
Being able to tailor the approach for each student with hybrid classes is important. With the right customization, everyone gets an equal opportunity to learn!
Eschool presents fantastic opportunities for students to reap the benefits of in-person and remote learning. With expanded class selections, better teachers, and seamless technology, it’s a great way to propel students into the digital age.
