Yen’s Academy (member of Ignium Academy) is thankful for the opportunity to be on our national chinese television, Channel 8 Morning Express to share how we have been coping during Covid-19.
We focused on solving the problem and making the transition as smooth and pleasant as possible for our parents/students. Once we knew we were going to use Zoom as our chose platform for online classes, we did our best to provide extra support by providing a zoom guideline booklet and checked in with all our parents to ensure that they all had devices to use during the HBL period. There were a few who did not have any to spare, and we loaned them ours.
As always, our main focus is to make learning FUN. In that vein, even when dealing with connectivity/WIFI issues with our students, instead of reacting in a negative manner that would end up stressing our students because such issues are out of our control, we were mindful to deal with it in a lighthearted manner.
There are always learning opportunities and teachable moments. Are you using today’s crisis as an excuse for mediocrity or an opportunity for excellence?
One good thing that has come out of this pandemic is that it has forced us educators to venture into the area of education technology. When we come out of this crisis, perhaps we will be able to see more teachers letting go of the traditional way of teaching and truly embracing the use of technology for effective teaching and learning.
As adults, parents and teachers, it is our duty to demonstrate to our young ones how we get through this pandemic positively. We are creatures of resilience. We shall get through this!
