We at PeopleStories strongly believes in making a real difference for the students and communities we serve. One of the ways how we achieve that is by working very closely with teachers in Cambodia and today we speak with teacher Sarit about the impact of COVID19 on schools and learning in rural Cambodia.
Teacher Sarit works at Ta Ey High School and teaches English for grades 8 and 10. He is a strong believer in education and has been an invaluable supporter of PeopleStories.
Q: How do the teachers monitor the progress of the students?
We meet up with the students with our lessons and exercises. Then we will collect the work at our next meeting. It is not so effective because we are not meeting every day and it is difficult to get all the work back.
Thank you teacher Sarit for sharing this!
It is sometimes easy to forget how relatively easy most of us have it in developed cities and countries and how difficult it is in remote and rural areas when it comes to learning especially during school closures. Full credit to all the teachers trying their very best to visit students and continue learning in small groups without having the benefit of technology or the internet.
We at PeopleStories are working on a solution to start addressing this challenge by taking the first step in mobile learning. Stay tuned and we hope to have some further exciting news soon!
