As the Coronavirus began to spread. First, schools around the world were closed to save children from this global epidemic. The provision of online education began after the closure of schools. However, most parents complain that children (especially those in primary school) are not interested in taking online classes and engage in other activities. In such cases, they have to monitor the children at all times so that they listen carefully to the teachers.
According to UNICEF, the first wave of coronavirus lockdown has affected the education of more than 1.57 billion students worldwide. The academic year and exam schedule have also been affected.
After the third wave of Corona in Pakistan, most of the educational institutions across the country have been closed once again. Since then, schools have resumed online classes. Online learning is so extensive that almost all educational needs can be met except for courses that include practicals. But it is not an easy task for any child to get an online education by sitting in front of a computer or laptop instead of going to school.
If kids get bored while learning online education, you can’t blame them. You can encourage them to study in a virtual school. Rosalind Wiseman, co-author of Distance Learning Playbook for Parents, offers strategies for dealing with the difficulties and troubles of online schooling. This can help keep children from getting bored or bored while studying online.
When A Child Does Not Want To Take An Online Class
There is always a reason for any action of children. You will need to find out. Avoid common questions like “How is school going?” Let your child know that schools are closed. That is why online education has been started. All of this is done with your health in mind. Give children a break after learning online. And then that time can be used for non-technological activities like drawing, exercising or going for a walk.
Child Upset Over Helping
To avoid coercion, try to guide your children through curious questions. For example, if they are answering an open-ended question, work three to 10 seconds after they speak to establish the idea. If they have trouble answering or they say something wrong, give them a hint, such as, “Let’s look at the teacher’s checklist to see if there’s anything missing” or “Can you re-read the question?” “If you see that your child is confused or frustrated about the assignment, email his / her teacher and ask him / her to come up with a strategy to get him / her back.
Find Out Your Child’s Feedback on Online Education
If you ask the child something, he will say whatever he says, “Thank you for telling me.” Emotions are real but not permanent. We talk about them. If we support each other, they will not be so afraid. Your child says he is bored. Ask them to express their thoughts and feelings in other words. One of the meanings of ‘boredom’ may be that they have not been challenged or they have not understood the education given.
If you think your child is restless or depressed, tell your child what you are observing. You ask, is this true? Then discuss possible care strategies, such as seeing a doctor.
If The Child Is Not Improving
If the child is not developing or improving, find ways to improve his / her skills by moving away from online. Ask your child to make a to-do list for spelling and writing exercises. To teach shapes, mark circles, squares, and triangles as they move out of the house. If they are struggling to understand the alphabet, show them the alphabet using your body. Such as standing with arms open to form the English letter T.
