You're mistaken if you think that online classes or schooling started when the pandemic hit. It began during the mid-1900s, meaning distance learning is already happening across the globe, but this happens only to countries with good internet connections and organized education systems.
When the COVID-19 struck the world, there were many things affected, as the education of students. The government and experts told everyone to stay at home, and it left no choice but to continue the academic year through distance learning or online classes.
In the Philippines, the Department of Education declared a blended learning system where students stay and study at home. Parents, teachers, and learners began to share their comments and opinion about the said decision. Some agreed, but most of them questioned the credibility of their kids, educators, and the learners themselves. Furthermore, blended learning started last October 5, 2020.
Since it was already a year after the declaration of blended learning, people are curious whether virtual connections are more effective than in-person classes. Maybe some learners enjoyed taking their discussions at home since they have a more flexible time, but most are not happy with the new learning modality.
Most students started ranting and complaining about different social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter. Movement surveyed Safe, Equitable, Quality and Relevant Education (SEQuRE) among the learners and parents. It showed that 86.7% of students from modular learning, 66% in online learning, and 74% in blended learning said they learned less. Some parents started to open up about their observations of their children. Aside from not knowing much compared to when classes are face-to-face, their mental health was also affected.
On the other hand, the problems in the new learning modality did not stop from the survey and observations of learners' parents. The worst part was, the suicide cases of students started to dominate social media recently. It means that student's mental health is at risk, too, especially those who have a history of anxiety and depression.
Summarizing the information and comments from the people affected by virtual classes shows that face-to-face schooling is better. Learners are more attentive during in-person discussions since studying at home comes with many distractions. Some are comfortable learning with their classmates or friends aside from self-studying inside their room.
Also, not everyone has access to a good internet connection and has any gadget for online learning. The problems that learners face right now may become worse when the education system still insists on blended learning. Students' mental health is becoming unstable, and they are learning less must bother everyone. The future generation might suffer the worst consequences when learning today will continue in the next academic years.
