More creativity for virtual learning

I would like to respond to a letter, ‘Remote learning putting stress on working parents’, published in the Opinion page of the Bulletin on September 11.

I wholeheartedly agree with the writer on the amount of effort that is required by the parents to keep their children interested in learning – a task that would have been rested on the shoulders of teachers had the classes been done in a physical classroom.

My suggestion is for teachers to come up with more creative way of motivating students. At the moment, my children are only receiving Zoom classes. Most days, I’ve noticed their concentrating waning due to the monotony. Perhaps a few “offbeat” activities to keep the students more engaged, such as group assignments where they can work in smaller teams and socialise with their peers in a more intimate setting.
