Cambodia has started another round of school closures from 16 March due to the spike in COVID19 cases and many of the students once again are not engaged in learning. However, one thing we have witnessed is the adaptiveness and resilience of some local teachers in overcoming the challenges that school closures brought to their education eco-system.
In anticipation that schools may have to close again, Sangvat has learnt to use Zoom to organise lessons with the students. He shared,” The school’s director, teachers and I all agreed that this application should be used for our teaching. As a result, the outcome was better though we still face some challenges. We will continue to improve the way children are taught.”
What will help the teachers to have better online teaching sessions? Sangyat shared his wish list,” In order for online learning to generate good learning outcomes for our students, I hope that it is possible for our schools to provide laptops for the other teachers and me. I would also like to have more training on using other programmes that are related to teaching online.”
Our gratitude towards all the educators who are stepping up for the benefits of the children learning. Quality of Learning is the core of PeopleStories School for Life program and we are committed to tackle this major issues hand-in-hand with our teachers in the villages.
To break the cycle of poverty by advancing education for underprivileged students, families and communities in need.
