Setting standards amid this pandemic is difficult and challenging. Before the pandemic started, most people kept to deadlines however, this has changed. Now it’s even more difficult for some high-school teachers as well as professors to stick with deadlines.
As a result, most schools now offer some leniency to their students as they are aware that everyone is going through a tough period. Also, this leniency rule has worked perfectly well for students who are not motivated due to the pandemic.
As it stands getting back on track will be difficult as the new system is now seen as normal. If you stay with us, we at Invictus will explore why schools need to adapt to the pandemic and how these students can still have a good educational experience even after the pandemic.
- The Diminishing Circumstances is Used as Excuse.
We understand that the world is passing through diminishing circumstances right now as a result of the pandemic, however, it should not continue to be the excuse most students use for uncompleted assignments or tasks even though for students it was genuine.
The pandemic has led to several waves of panic, illnesses, mental and physical health, bad network connections, and so on. As a result, students were stressed to their limits and it was an unstable situation. However, a lot of them tried to make more excuses for themselves to others about their inability to learn during the pandemic.
- Getting Students Motivation Back.
As much as students have found ways to relax during the pandemic as it is the only way to maintain their mental health, it is essential to know that it’s time for them to buckle up as most schools have resumed for the upcoming semester.
Even during the pandemic, the world has not seized from turning, neither did people stop raising their voices for their beliefs and its importance. Now that the tension of the pandemic is on a decline, students must settle in and push themselves to learn in this new environment that’s seen as normal.
Students need to be more careful of their health, however, still consider education productivity to reach their goals and aspirations.
- The Teacher and Student Relationship
The new normal in education can only be made possible when students intentionally put more effort into learning and teachers learn to be more patient with their students. Students always look up to their teachers to acquire knowledge and as mentors.
We expect teachers to be receptive and understanding to their students as some of these students may seem to give their best, but it still seems rusty.
- Students Accommodating Teachers
Professors, as well as teachers, are reviewing their curriculums to get a new model of teaching that will aid the learning process of students after the pandemic. The good teachers out there are concerned about how effective these new teaching models can be to help these students acquire knowledge given that they missed a lot in their curriculums while staying at home during the pandemic. They do this to meet up with the time they missed while at home.
- Teachers Accommodating Students
Similarly, teachers should be willing to listen to student issues and concerns. They should implore the habit of checking up on their students to know them better and also know the situation each of these students finds themselves.
By doing so, it allows both the teacher and student to be clear about what should be expected and the current reality. If a particular student is finding difficulties outside the classroom, the teacher will know the standard to set for such a student.
However, if teachers cannot reach out to every student, it is advised that all students with concerns and challenges can confide in their teachers for a possible resolution.
