Is Online Tuition Becoming the New Normal?
In many ways, the epidemic has altered our lives. Remote working and home-based learning are part of the new normal for parents and children. Physical tuition classes were halted — and are now resuming a year later — with a large portion of children’s education being moved online.
However, it hasn’t been easy for technology to adjust to at first. Despite Singapore’s efforts to become a “Smart Nation,” most of us consider advanced technology like cashless payments and telecommuting services as a bonus to our lives rather than a need.
However, the reality is that we now need to digitize more than ever before. Remote working and learning will continue to be favored as we recover from the pandemic.
You may be concerned as a parent about what this means for you and your children. Until recently, our children had been accustomed to learning in a physical setting with a teacher at the front of the classroom. How can we manage home-based learning in instances like these, when physical sessions are suspended?
The good news is that our children have been growing up in a digital world. They are growing in the age of the internet and are quick to pick up new technology. We must welcome and adapt to these future changes rather than resisting them, as we migrate to a new norm of home-based learning and remote working.
In the period of your child’s online studies, you will most likely be their supervisor, mentor, and help desk all rolled into one – especially for younger children. You’ll be the person they turn to when they’re having trouble connecting or when they need to remain motivated. Preparing them for the online medium now requires you to prepare as well.
So, what are your options? Learning about virtual seminars, workshops, and telecommuting is an excellent place to start. Model good digital behaviors for your kids, and they’ll automatically follow suit.
The adjustment period may be challenging, but that is to be expected. You’ll probably discover that online learning isn’t as simple or successful for your youngster at first, but remember that, like all abilities, practice is required.
To best fit our needs, today’s technologies are built with growing sophistication and user-friendliness. In the calls on online learning platforms, students can communicate their needs in a variety of ways, including typing in chat boxes, reacting with emojis, and speaking into the mic, depending on which method they prefer. Teachers can now record their classes so that students can review them later if they forget something or need a refresher. For a better learning experience, these features provide us with more resources and accessibility.
Simply put, online education of all sorts including schooling and tuition can be effective if we can figure out how to make it so. People used to be skeptical of online education in the beginning of the pandemic. However, after being given the opportunity to participate in a variety of online programmes during the past two years, they have started to recognise and acknowledge the importance of them.
Online classes and seminars, for example, save time! Spending less time traveling allows you to free your schedule for doing things you enjoy, such as spending time with your family, resting, and enjoying your hobbies. Of course, keeping your child and family safe is also paramount, which means staying at home as much as possible for the time being.
None of us could have predicted the need for a more digital world twenty years ago. And, if you consider your child’s future, you may expect it to be filled with more and more advanced technology. They’ll need to adapt to the digital media to survive, and there’s no better time than now to get them started.
