"Borysfen" is a school for families who have chosen space for their children without gadgets at home and school (up to a certain age). With the sudden quarantine, nothing has changed in that matter. We cannot solve one problem with another problem.
Online learning is difficult for children's perception and comprehension and unhygienic for the eyesight.
Not all children have access to computers, not all have good internet connections because many families are in the villages now.
There is no effective way to check up that all the knowledge that is given is also qualitatively acquired. When kids return to school, after this kind of online study, the process will show a big gap in how children in the same class have grasped the learning content. The teacher will have to return to this content again.
Many parents are working during the quarantine (at work or home) and cannot track the intensive online learning of their child. And at home, all responsibility for the level and quality of the process falls on the parents. When families choose online-study, they have to do so by assessing their human and time resources.
We do not want our children to regularly glance at the screen that displays their teacher. This will give the rudiments of dependence, which will then be difficult to deal with.
Taking all this into consideration, we don't see any expediency in online study.
At the same time, our children now have home-based offline learning: children receive assignments (which the teacher sends to parents) and complete them within a set timeframe, but in no hurry and at a much smaller scale than they would have had at school. Teachers keep in touch with parents: parents share what their children do at home. There is a connection over the phone when needed.
We wish everyone mental and physical health!
