As Covid -19 cases rise again, pupils are being taught through remote learning again. Pupils who attend schools in Hong Kong or boarding schools overseas are finding that remote learning presents challenges.

Most schools and teachers have learnt rapidly how to provide high quality lessons online and are developing their digital resources. Yet some pupils are struggling, in London, The Times newspaper recently published a story on the number of parents seeking additional help for their children from tutors.

Remote learning, focusing on a screen, with headphones on has helped some pupils to concentrate. Yet, for others online learning has proved to be less successful. Teachers find it difficult to assess if every pupil is keeping up with the lesson.

Unfortunately, remote learning restricts the variety of learning styles available to pupils. Those who usually learn best through hand-on, practical learning may find their education impaired.

Doubts and queries may remain, knowledge of a topic may be incomplete. A recent article in The Times Educational Supplement noted that teachers find classes quiet, receiving little feedback, "It is like teaching into an abyss," commented one teacher.

Teachers sometimes find it difficult to mark work submitted online, consequently less work may be set than during normal school terms. Unfortunately, pupils may not be benefitting from as much feedback as they usually receive.

At this difficult time for pupils and schools, Minerva has frequently been asked to provide extra tuition for pupils. Access to an experienced tutor gives a pupil the opportunity to ask for help and to have questions answered.
