Forward thinking

As we all know, most of the schools in the UAE have offered online mode of learning as the New Year started, for a couple of weeks. It came as a huge relief for most of the parents. Most of the students had just returned from their vacation and needed a few days at home also. I really appreciate Sharjah Private Education Authority (SPEA) and KHDA for their forward thinking. As a parent we were all worried initially for the safety of our child also as the COVID-19 cases have started rising in the month of January, but the UAE authorities have already offered respite for us by allowing children to take online classes.  

I really appreciate schools for their hand work they are putting in for teaching students online. Changing mode of learning is not at all easy for teachers. I really praise the entire teaching community for successfully managing online classes in all these months. Online mode of learning is also helping those students who have gone to their home country during the winter break and are still there. Such students can take up classes online from their home country without missing it.
