𝐇𝐚𝐬 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 “𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐭”?
𝐇𝐚𝐬 𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐫𝐧𝐢𝐧𝐠 𝐛𝐞𝐞𝐧 “𝐥𝐨𝐬𝐭”? As we possibly emerge from the pandemic there is much debate as to whether learning has been “lost”. Undoubtedly, some pupils have been left with a learning deficit. Online lessons have not always been as efficient as classroom learning in delivering the content for syllabi. In these cases, Minerva Tuition has experienced teachers, across the curriculum, who are available to help.
𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐬𝐲 The “lost” learning debate centres on the idea that education consists of neat packages of content. Clearly, where pupils are targeting examination success in the near future, learning will have been lost. However, educationalists argue that education is a far broader concept than just the school curriculum. In reality, learning is much broader than syllabus content. Important questions remain. Have pupils’ social skills been impaired? Are they less likely to have learnt how to maintain their physical health in future?
𝐏𝐮𝐩𝐢𝐥𝐬 𝐟𝐥𝐨𝐮𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐡𝐢𝐧𝐠 Teachers report that some pupils have actually flourished with online learning. Freed from the distractions of the classroom, with eyes focussed on the screen and headphones on, their concentration - and performance - has improved markedly.
𝐅𝐚𝐦𝐢𝐥𝐲 𝐥𝐢𝐟𝐞 Although pupils have disliked the curbs on their freedom that lockdown has imposed, they have generally appreciated additional time with their family, the opportunity to talk to their parents and siblings.
𝐒𝐜𝐫𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐢𝐦𝐞 While parents and teachers have been concerned by hours spent online, children, a generation likely to spend much of their life online, have enjoyed the additional screen time. Has lockdown prepared pupils for the work from home digital economy that may form a significant part of their future?
