West Java Education Office conducts online learning amid pandemic
During the pandemic as today, the Western Java Educational Office will also carry out many activities to keep the learning process flowing well. Even in each region, they are also implementing a new ya ng learning process for students to achieve the baccalaureate curriculum and increase.
Some schools, especially vocational schools, carry out the face-to-face learning process on their own. However, this is also true in some places, and especially only on practicum subjects. The reason for this is that in this vocational school, skills are important things that students must possess.
Meanwhile, the practicum process is also carried out face-to-face. So it needs to be done directly. In addition, Western Java education also provides plenty of assistance to students who can’t afford it so they can continue to study. Such as providing free devices and free data quotas to teachers and students.
But the introduction of this new teaching made many parents complain. Because they couldn’t teach their kids some unfamiliar lessons. Especially students who can’t manage this new learning system. The government is also working on practical learning by applying several important points.
Online learning during the COVID pandemic
Namely, the COVID-19 pandemic since 2020 has really affected many sectors. Including the field of education, this is also affected. Students and students who are still in school should feel the impact by going to home school or online learning. The program is conducted at every school.
Like the West Java Education Office, it also conducts an online school program for all Western Java students. This policy itself is truly implemented in all educational places throughout Indonesia, even in the world. The original learning was carried out face-to-face. But that has changed as the coronavirus pandemic spreads.
This home learning is carried out to give students a new experience. Nevertheless, although it is conducted remotely, teachers must be able to achieve the goal of increasing the curricularmind and graduation must be carried out. However, this new learning method has received many negative responses.
Especially from a parent caregiver. Many of them complained of hassle and could not participate in online learning activities conducted by the Western Java and other regions’ educational office. Few people want this online learning to stop and come back face to face.
Since it uses the Internet, it certainly requires quota data as well. Meanwhile, the government is also providing free quotas for students and teachers. So it will lighten the burden during the learning process during the current pandemic. In West Java itself , it also provides internet quota assistance for a smooth learning process.
Forward offline class verification
Now during the Covid-19 pandemic, a new normal is being implemented, the government and educational office of Western Java are also implementing a new program, that is, conducting face-to-face learning. But still for some rules are imposed in the implementation of this learning process. So it can still minimize covid cases.
Although the location of the school is in the green zone, it is still not directly imposed face-to-face learning. 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 are mandatory in the green zone.
Jamn for face-to-face activities is also a priority for students who are not supported by the internet network or are called empty spaces. So really not all learning sites 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 vocational high school itself or vocational high school, from the West Java educational office, this face-to-face system will apply lessons whose nature is merely a practicum. Because if you want to get certified for your own skills, you need to practice immediately.
Even teachers are not all able to participate directly in this learning process. There are several points that must also be considered. For example, those who can participate are teachers under the age of 45 and have no other diseases that will interfere with the learning process during this pandemic.
West Java educators get vaccines
The West Java Educational Office suggested that teachers be vaccinated across West Java. Of course, the vaccine injection will continue to be carried out in stages. Especially for teaching staff who will carry out face-to-face learning activities.
Not only that, but the provision will also be a priority for teachers who are old. The vaccination phases given by the government will also be given in accordance with the programme. Indeed, vaccination for teachers is very important to apply once it is used by medical staff.
Of course, this is applied so that the learning process can be properly carried out without anyone getting covid. To provide vaccines for the teachers themselves is proposed according to the number of their own workers in West Java. Of course, suntandkan are given to teachers who first perform direct learning activities .
Based on the West Java educational office, for those who themselves participate in direct offline learning, not all. Only a few hundred of them are adapted to the applicable rules. In fact, there are still many schools that have failed to implement this learning because they are located in locations with a high covid case rate.
For vaccine acceptance to work optimally, all those who will be screened must also have an examination first. This is very important to apply so that when administering the vaccine can be maximized. Even though they got this injection themselves, they still have to comply with health protocols.
Direct Learning Process in West Java
Teaching and teaching activities maintained directly by the Western Java Education Office itself has also prepared how the scheme is. As for this learning activity itself, it is also carried out in stages paying attention first to how the expansion zone in the area is both efforts and readiness for prevention.
Although this face-to-face learning activity is made, it adheres to the principles of supporting the safety of students or teachers. This is an important and main point that each party must consider. Any school that will use this system must be prepared for many things.
Chiefs from the education department will later see what the school’s readiness is like. Of course, he is accompanied by a village head and a local regional head. If there are still many disadvantages, then it must first be equipped. However, if the school has fulfilled all the necessary things, it can be transferred directly to the department.
For the implementation of the learning itself, a combined learning method will be applied. Where later students will study for life in school in return or shift. So that one class will be divided into two or three, according to the rules. The West Java Education Office has certainly prepared things that can reduce the spread of covid.
