Teachers are obliged to run online lessons since 25th March. Some are able to do it, many not. My two kids who go to the same school have regular online lessons with live contact - with cameras or without. They use their phones, Ipod and a PC computer in their room. They even have PE! When I hear stomping in their room, I know they are doing exercise. Funny. However, I print a lot of stuff for them - teachers assign homework which must be done. They even check attendance.
However, not all schools are able to do it. Ours, in the big city, is modern enough and teachers are also well prepared to run such lessons. But I can read it doesn`t work so good in countryside schools - both teachers and students are not able to cope with all the problems, mainly an access to quick connections.
Another problem is big traffic on some nation-wide school e-platforms which quickly get jammed and logging onto them takes a lot of time.
PS. I mostly do conferences with or without video. In case most students in class can`t join us, I record a video to share with them at a later time. We do exercises in online Workbooks. Mail, school e-platform are also standard. I don`t use Facebook, though.
The small city next to my town has many low-income families, and these families do not have the resources for the children to engage in online teaching. The city has given these children Chromebooks to do their work, so now supposedly, everyone can participate. Other towns and school districts have done the same. There goes the school budget for the next few years!
