West Java Education Office implements online learning amid the pandemic
During a pandemic like today, the West Java education office will also carry out many activities so that the learning process continues to work well. Even in each region, a new ya ng learning process is also being implemented in order to keep students reaching the curriculum for graduation and advancement.
Some schools, especially vocational schools, implement a face-to-face learning process themselves. However, this also applies in some places and especially in practical topics. Because in this vocational school, skills are an important thing that must be possessed by students.
Meanwhile, the process of practicum is also carried out directly face to face. It doesn’t have to be done directly. In addition, education in West Java also provides quite a lot of assistance to students who cannot afford it so that they can continue to study. Such as providing free devices and also free data quotas for teachers and students.
But the introduction of this new lesson made many parents complain. Because they can’t teach their kids for some unfamiliar lessons. Especially students who cannot operate this new learning system. The government is also trying to learn directly by applying several important points.
Online learning during the Covid pandemic
Indeed, the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020 has indeed had an impact on many sectors. Including in the field of education, it is also affected. Students who are still in school need to feel the impact by going to home school or online learning. The program is carried out in each school.
Like the West Java education office, it also implements an online school program for all students in West Java. This policy itself really unfolds in all educational places in Indonesia, even in the world. Initially, learning was carried out in a face-to-face manner. But it has changed as the coronavirus pandemic has spread even more.
Learning that takes place at home is conducted to provide a new experience for students. However, even if it is driven remotely, educators must be able to achievegrowth goals and graduation rates must be implemented. However, this new method of learning has received many negative responses.
Especially from guardian parents. Many of them complained of headaches and could not participate in online learning activities implemented by the education office in West Java and other regions. Not a few people want this online learning to be stopped and come back face to face.
Since they use the Internet, they certainly also require quota data. Meanwhile, the government is also offering free allowances for students and teachers. So as to further ease the burden during the learning process that takes place during the current pandemic. In West Java itself, it also provides internet share support for the trouble-free learning process.
Passed checking to take classes offline
Now that the new normal has been implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic, the government and the educational office in West Java have also run a new program, namely, the realization of learning using face-to-face methods. But still for some rules are imposed in the implementation of this learning process. So that they can still minimize COVID cases.
Although the location of the school is in the green zone, it is not yet directly applied to face-to-face learning. Because there are a few more points that need to be checked first. If the school meets the criteria, it can implement the program. For criteria such as schools are compulsory in the green zone.
Jamn that for face-to-face activities is also prioritized for students who are not supported by the internet network or called empty places. So, indeed, not all learning places can implement this learning system in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Even if it is included in the area of the green zone.
Meanwhile, the smk level or the vocational high school itself, from the west Java education office, this face-to-face system will be applied lessons that are just practicum. Because if you want to get a certificate for your own skills, you have to practice directly.
Even teachers are not all able to participate directly in this learning process. There are several points that must also be taken into account. For example, those who can participate are teachers under the age of 45 and have no other diseases that interfere with the learning process during this pandemic.
West Java Educators Given Vaccines
Disdik or the West Java education office proposed that educators be vaccinated throughout West Java. Of course, the injection of the vaccine will still be carried out in stages. Especially for teachers who will carry out face-to-face learning activities.
Not only will it also be prioritized for older teachers for the provision. The vaccination steps given by the government will also be given according to the schedule. Indeed, vaccination for educators is very important to be applied after the use of medical staff.
Of course, this is applied so that the learning process can be carried out properly without anyone being affected by covid. For the provision of vaccines for the teachers themselves, it is proposed according to the number of their own staff in West Java. Of course, they are awarded to teachers who first do direct learning activities .
Based on the education office in West Java, not all take part in direct offline learning. Only a few hundred have been adjusted to the applicable rules. In fact, there are still many schools that have failed to implement this learning because they are in locations with high rates of covid cases.
In order to accept the vaccine in order to function optimally, everything that will be summed upik must first make an examination. This is very important to apply so that when administering the vaccine it can be maximized. Even if you were given this injection yourself, you still have to follow health protocols.
Direct learning process in West Java
The teaching and learning activities are owned directly by the west Java education office , which has also prepared how the scheme is. As for this learning activity itself, it is also carried out in stages, paying attention primarily to how the area of deployment in the region and the efforts and readiness for prevention.
Although this face-to-face learning activity is carried out, it adheres to the principle of supporting the safety of students or teachers. This is an important and main point that must be taken into account by each side. Every school that will use this system must be prepared for many things.
The superintendents at the dissipation will later see what school preparation is like. Of course, it is accompanied by the head of the village and the head of the local sub-district. If there are still many shortcomings, then it must be completed first. However, if the school has fulfilled all the necessary things, it can be transmitted directly to the department.
For the implementation of the learning itself, the mixed learning method will be applied. If students later will study at the school directly in turn, or shifts. So a class will be divided into two or three according to the rules. The West Java education office has certainly prepared things that can minimize the spread of covid.
