West Java Education Office implements online learning in the midst of a pandemic
During a pandemic like today’s, West Java’s education office will also be conducting many activities to keep the learning process going well. Even in each region, they implement a new learning process for students to reach the graduation and boost curriculum.
Some schools, especially vocational schools themselves, implement the face-to-face learning process. However, this is also true in some places, and specifically only for practical subjects. The reason is that in this vocational school, skills are important things that students must have.
Meanwhile, the process of exercise is also carried out face-to-face. Soit has to be done directly. In addition, education in West Java also provides quite a lot of assistance to students who cannot afford it to continue their studies. For example, providing free devices and also free data quotas for teachers and students.
But the introduction of this new teaching has made many parents complain. Because they could not teach their children to some unknown lessons. Especially students who cannot master this new education system. The government is also working on practical training by applying several important points.
Online learning during the Covid pandemic
Indeed, the COVID-19 pandemic since 2020 has had an impact on many sectors. This also applies to the area of education. Students and students who are still in school should feel the impact by going to homeschool or online learning. The program runs in every school.
Like the West Java Education Office, it also implements an online school program for all students in West Java. Indeed, this policy itself is implemented in all educational places throughout Indonesia, even around the world. Initially, learning was carried out face to face. However, this changed as the coronavirus pandemic spread.
This homeschooling is done in order to provide students with a new experience. Nevertheless, even if it is conducted remotely, educators must be able to achieve the goal of raising the curriculum and a graduation ceremony must be held. However, this new method of learning has received many negative answers.
Especially from caregivers. Many of them complained of problems and could not participate in online educational activities carried out by the West Java Education Authority and other regions. Few people want this online learning to stop and come back face to face.
Because it uses the Internet, it certainly also requires quota data. Meanwhile, the government is also providing free quotas for students and teachers. To alleviate the burden during the educational process during the current pandemic. In West Java itself, it also provides assistance with internet quotas for a smooth learning process.
Successfully complete offline class verification
Now the new normal is being implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic, the government and education authority of West Java are also implementing a new program, namely the implementation of face-to-face learning . But still for some rules are imposed in the implementation of this educational process. So it can still minimize covid cases.
Even if the location of the school is in the green zone, face-to-face education is still not directly enforced. Because there are still some points that need to be checked first. If the school meets the criteria, it can implement the program. For criteria such as schools, they are mandatory in the green zone.
Jamn for in-person activities is also a priority for students who are not supported by the internet network or referred to as blanks. So, not all places of education can implement this education system in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although it is included in the area of the green zone.
Meanwhile, the very level of a secondary vocational school or secondary vocational school, from the educational office of West Java, this personal system will be applied to classes, the nature of which is only practice. Because if you want to get a certificate for your own skills, you need to practice immediately.
Even teachers are not able to directly participate in this educational process. There are also a few points to consider. For example, those who can participate are teachers under the age of 45 and have no other diseases that interfere with the educational process during this pandemic .
Educators from West Java who received vaccines
The West Java Education Authority has suggested that educators be vaccinated throughout West Java. Of course, the injection of the vaccine will still be carried out gradually. Especially for teachers who will carry out face-to-face educational activities.
Not only that, but the provision will also be a priority for teachers who are old. The phases of vaccination provided by the government will also be listed according to the program. Indeed, vaccination for educators is very important that it is applied after use by medical personnel.
Of course, this is applied so that the learning process can be carried out correctly without anyone getting covid. To provide vaccines for teachers themselves, it is designed according to the number of their own workers in West Java. Of course, sunt ikan is given to teachers who are the first to carry out direct educational activities .
Based on the Education Authority of West Java, for those who participate in direct offline learning on their own, not all. Only a few hundred of them have been adapted to the current rules. In fact, there are still many schools that have not been able to implement this teaching as they are located in places with high rates of covid cases.
To receive the vaccine, for it to work optimally, all those who will be screened must first also do an examination. This is very important to apply so that it can be maximized when administering the vaccine. Even if they themselves received this injection, they still have to follow health protocols.
The process of direct learning in West Java
Teaching and educational activities are organized directly by the West Java educational office itself, which has also prepared how the scheme is. As for the learning activity itself, it is also carried out gradually by first paying attention to how the dissemination zone in the area and the efforts and preparedness for prevention are made.
Even if this face-to-face learning activity has taken place, it adheres to the principle of promoting the safety of students or teachers. This is an important and major point that each side must consider. Any school that will use this system must be prepared for many things.
Supervisors from the education department will later see how prepared the school is. Of course, it is accompanied by the head of the village and the local head of the sub-area. If there are still a lot of shortcomings, then it must first be equipped. However, if the school has completed all the necessary things, it can be directly handed over to the department.
To implement the learning itself, the blended learning method is used. Where students will later study to live in school gradually or in shifts. So, one class will be divided into two or three, according to the rules. West Java’s Education Office has certainly prepared things that can minimize the spread of covid.
