The battle between Online and Face-to-face classes


The battle between online and face-to-face classes

Ever since the resumption of normal classes was announced on March 4 by the President of Mozambique, Filipe Nyusi, students and parents have been wondering whether to go or just stay in the house for the online classes.

All students were doing online classes before the announcement. There was a regular schedule for each subject that the student had to attend, and all of the classes were held in the morning. But after the announcement, two schedules were formed to serve the students, both online and face-to-face. Face-to-face classes are done in the morning from 7:30 to 11:30, while online classes are done from 12:30 until 3:45 in the afternoon.

There were more students coming to face-to-face classes compared to online classes. In one grade level, for example, there are a total of 35 students coming face-to-face as compared to only 15 coming online. In another grade level, there are 25 students coming to school while 19 are doing it online.

So what does this show? Maybe this can mean some kind of eagerness from the students to come to school, meet everyone, and learn since, for a long time, just staying at home brought boredom to them. Or perhaps the students just really need an actual lesson facilitated by their teachers in a manner that is personal, so teaching and learning can be done easily.

What's the problem with the Internet? Well, one thing: the internet is lagging. Not all computers and the internet are working very well, so this indeed affects The only consolation of doing online could be protection from the contraction of the terrible virus.

Anyway, whatever the format, online or face-to-face, MIC is prepared and ready to help the students learn very well.
