Blended Learning during the CoVid-19 Pandemic
Before CoVid-19 forced schools in Singapore and all over the globe to temporarily close, blended learning was defined as the combination of physical classes and online learning. Now, with physical lessons shifted online till 13 June in Singapore, blended learning has taken on a new face.
In place of face-to-face lessons, many schools have started to conduct their classes on virtual meeting platforms like Google Meet and Zoom. To supplement their lessons, students may receive self-directed learning opportunities on top of exercises to be completed after school hours.
Here are some ways you can help your child find this period of blended learning beneficial:
- Discuss what they learned in class
- Encourage them to explore their interest and passions
- Keep them motivated
