Further Reflections from the Technophobe… Slowly overcoming her phobia

Two weeks ago, I reflected on the incredible journey that had been taken in getting our students into virtual school.  The buzz and excitement of this steep learning curve was felt by all – students and educators alike.

The stream of children who come to us for various issues – usually to do with other children,  the cheerful good mornings and not so cheerful grunts and even the ‘not so pleasant’ reminders of what the school uniform should look like.   I certainly miss my students and colleagues.  I am sure we all do.

So where are we at, three weeks in?  The excitement and novelty of virtual school is waning but it is replaced with efficiency and focus.  The children who thought it was funny to mute or unmute another student or even eject them from a lesson are more respectful and supportive of each other and there is almost joy and relief in being brought together for a virtual lesson.  We don’t see children dragging themselves to their tech device (perhaps you, the parents have a different view). Instead, I am amazed with the mature and polite responses I get from my students.  There is almost a sense of gratitude that we are there for them. 

And what about the learning, after all isn’t this what school is all about.  If the work children produce is the best indicator of their learning then I feel confident that our students are doing a great job.  But it is not just the curriculum that they are learning.  There seems to be heightened levels of independence and ownership of their learning.  Some of them have got extra time to pursue their interests and go deeper into areas of learning that they are interested in and I cannot help but feel that education, the way we know it, will look different when we all come out the other end of this pandemic. 

And as for my learning …?  Maybe, just maybe, I am kindling a love for technology?
