KOTA BELUD: Parents involvement in the online learning process not only helps teachers to focus on teaching aspects but also motivate students to learn.
Former Chief Minister, Datuk Seri Dr Salleh Said Keruak said that parental involvement in the preparation of their children’s studies also indirectly alleviate problems related to students missing out on their studies due to the Covid-19 pandemic which has affected the entire country.
“And because of that, I do hope that parents give their support and encourage their children to continue learning and to double their efforts so that they don’t miss out on their education,” he said when launching a KEMAS organised parenting workshop for the Usukan constituency which was held online today.
The Usukan assemblyman also said that the pandemic has altered the setting for teaching and learning whereby students have to continue the process at home instead of at school.
He said that the present teaching and learning sessions between teachers and students are no longer held face-to-face, but have evolved into teaching and learning at ones home also known as PDPR.
Salleh stressed that the teachers played a crucial role in making the PDPR a success despite the challenges faced.
“Teachers have to do the best of their abilities to impart knowledge to their students without face-to-face, and it is tough,” he said.
