Distance learning time showed us that the kids were imitators. However, in order to return to the full concept of humanity, one needs to return to proven teaching methods, so that young people become independent and logical people, and the conclusions they draw are based on knowledge and science – Barbara Novak, Małopolska Educational Supervisor, said in the Today News broadcast On Radio Marija.
Polish school students have been learning remotely for more than a year due to the Coronavirus pandemic. On April 6, Daryush Piontkovsky, Deputy Minister of Education, explained that returning to full-time education depends on the state of the epidemic. But he said he hoped that would happen in the coming months.
– If so, then it will finally be possible to go back to school in April, I am very happy. However, when we talk about the epidemic itself, we often hear that after the epidemic, “we will return to normal.” However, after the pandemic, we will all return differently – Barbara Nowak said.
Małopolska’s Education Supervisor confirmed that distance learning is not able to emulate static learning, based on direct contact with the teacher and peers.
We know that for the proper and complete formation of humanity, personal relationships are needed, not those via computers, but direct relationships, where we see gestures and facial expressions. For this full humanity, we also need connection to the real world Indicated interlocutor.
Barbara Novak reports that students will need to re-introduce them to classroom lessons after the extended period of rest and screen learning.
There are many challenges ahead. First of all, we need to become people who think of ourselves again. Distance learning time showed us that the kids were imitators. However, in order to return to the full concept of humanity, it is necessary to return to proven teaching methods, so that young people become independent and logical people, and the conclusions they reach are based on knowledge and science. – Broadcast guest explanation.
The expert indicated a great need for talks and discussions with young people, so that they can find themselves in the current situation, but also can draw conclusions themselves.
You need to mobilize a whole crowd of adults, such as teachers, psychologists, and catechists on children and youth, and let them know that we are close and offer help – Barbara Nowak said.
The Ministry of Education and Science recently announced several support programs for students and teachers. However, the opposition estimated that the proposed assistance was not sufficient and that the scale of the problem was much greater.
It is good that the left also sees the need to help the children. I hope you have noticed how much wrong you have made, for example by proposing to abandon science in favor of gender inventions and replace science with a new Marxist ideology. It has also done much evil by spreading experiences with youthful sexuality and inventing artificial cultural species (…). Often their fault was that the children did not find themselves in a dangerous situation – Evaluate the educational supervisor in Malopolska.
According to the “Akhbar Al-Youm” guest, the current government, which proposes numerous programs to support the sciences, is facing the problems of Polish students.
These are very specific programs and, as the left says, they are not sufficient. There is no argument to say that. The idea of how to help children after they return to school is clearly very specific. Additionally, there are announcements of diagnostic tests – Barbara Novak informed.
The Malopolska Education Supervisor also drew attention to the financial support that the government has allocated to help and improve distance learning.
We are talking about helping mental and physical health. We are also talking about psychological support for teachers. The amounts shown amount to more than 250 million PLN The interviewer said.
Barbara Nowak estimated that Polish youth and children are affected by distance learning, but the government cannot be blamed for introducing it, as the pandemic was needed.
Distance learning was a response to needed isolation due to epidemic threats – The educational supervisor confirmed in Malopolska.
