My child in grade 3 had live class today. He was excited to learn from the teacher and most importantly interacting with other kids online. In my view live classes are the way to go as they blurr the inclass and face to face physical classes which are not happening now. It was a big relief for me as a parent as the teacher had to explain what they want the children to do as opposed to uploading loads of stuff online for children to do. At Grade 3, children can’t understand the instruction let alone knowing how to do it. That becomes a huge burden to a parent who has to juggle explaining instructions and content to the child and do his/her work. Look at the positive comments from parents about their children’s experiences of live learning. It is a big relief and at the same time quality learning for children.
