Distance and Flexible Learning is one of the major strategies during a lockdown

This strategy is very important to be exercised to students where as teacher are supposed to provide all required equipment to support the needs of the students

It is good to practice this way of learning to enhance the learning style to students. Concerning the needs of student, the remote learning style is more flexible where students can learn from outside the classroom in an open space where they feel comfortable with.
During their free time, they can also put questions to be answered or discussed with other mates with the support of the teacher

Therefore, the teacher has to be proactive in making new learning including the styles of using distancing learning

Yes, distance and flexible learning are the order of the day. It, however, also requires the parents’ presence or active role in supervising learning.
Teacher/tutor-requires new thinking in which teachers have strategies to keep students learning actively, bringing them up to par with those with limited digital skills. Having a class list means actively engaging the admin staff to obtain contact details to create learning platforms such as WhatsUp groups to send and share links to resources and activities. This is based on the assumption that most students have smartphones, as students are active on social media.

Parents—encouraging and ensuring that constructive alignment and learning take place at home, in terms of learning objectives achieved, mastery of content and that assessments are completed and submitted.
