West Java Education Office Implements Online Learning Amid Pandemic
During a pandemic like today, the West Java education office will also carry out many activities so that the learning process continues to progress well. Even in each region, it also implements a new ya ng learning process so that students keep reaching the curriculum for graduation and advancement.
Some schools, especially vocational schools themselves implement a process of face-to-face learning. However, this also applies in some places and specifically in practicum subjects only. Because in this vocational school, skills are an important thing that must be possessed by students.
Meanwhile, the practicum process is also done directly face to face. It doesn’t have to be done directly. In addition, West Java education also provides a lot of assistance to students who cannot afford it so they can continue studying. Such as providing free devices and also free data quotas to teachers and students.
But the introduction of this new learning has made many parents complain. Because they cannot teach their children for any unknown lessons. Especially students who cannot operate this new learning system. The government is trying to learn directly by applying several important points.
Online Learning During the Covid Pandemic
In fact, the COVID-19 pandemic since 2020 has indeed had an impact on many sectors. Including in the field of education, it 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 run in every school.
Like the West Java education office, it also implements an online school program for all students in West Java. This policy itself is indeed carried out in all educational places across Indonesia, even the world. Originally, learning was done in a face-to-face way. But it changed as the coronavirus pandemic spread further.
Home learning is done to give students a new experience. Still, despite being run remotely, educators must be able to meet the targetsfor the increase and graduation rates must be implemented. However, this new learning method has received many negative reactions.
Especially from guardian parents. Many of them complained of hassle and were unable to participate in online learning activities implemented by the West Java education office and other regions. Not a few people want this online learning to be stopped and returned face-to-face.
Because it uses the internet, it certainly also requires quota data. Meanwhile, the government also provides free quotas for students and teachers. To further alleviate the burden during the learning process that occurs during the current pandemic. In West Java itself, it also provides internet quota assistance for the seamless learning process.
Passed The Offline Class Taking Audit
Now that the new normal has been implemented during the covid-19 pandemic, the west Java government and education office have also carried out a new program, namely conducting learning using face-to-face methods. But still some rules are imposed in the implementation of this learning process. So that you can still minimise Covid cases.
Although the school place is located in the green zone, it is not yet directly enforced face-to-face learning. Because there are still some points to check first. If the school meets the criteria, you can implement the program. For criteria such as schools are mandatory 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 blank spots. So indeed not all places of learning can implement this learning system in the midst of the covid-19 pandemic. Even if it is included in the green zone area.
Meanwhile, the smk level or vocational high school itself, from the West Java education office, this face-to-face system will be applied lessons that are practicum only. Because if you want to get a certificate for your own skills, you are required to practice directly.
Even not all teachers can participate directly in this learning process. There are several points that also need to be considered. For example, those who can participate are teachers under the age of 45, and have no other ailments that will interfere with the learning process during this pandemic.
West Java Educators Given Vaccines
Disdain or the West Java education office has proposed that educators be vaccinated around West Java. Of course, the injection of the vaccine will still take place in stages. Especially for teaching staff who will carry out face-to-face learning activities.
Not only will, for provision, priority be given to teachers who are elderly. The stages of government-administered vaccination will also be given according to the programme. 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 done properly without anyone being affected by covid. For the provision of vaccines for teachers themselves, it is proposed according to their own number of staff in West Java. Of course, the sunis given to teachers who first do direct learning activities.
Based on the West Java education office, not all of them take part in direct learning offline themselves. Only a few hundred have been adjusted to the applicable rules. In fact, there are still many schools that have been unable to implement this teaching because they are located in places with high covid case rates.
For acceptance of the vaccine in order to optimise the functioning of the vaccine, all thatwill be collectedshould also carry out an examination first. This is very important to apply so that when the vaccine is given it can be maximised. Even if you have been given this injection yourself, you must still obey the health protocols.
The Process of Direct Learning in West Java
Learning and learning activities are carried out directly by West Java’s own education office has also prepared what the scheme is like. With regard to this learning activity itself, it is also carried out in stages by paying attention first to how the area of deployment in the region and the efforts and willingness to prevent it.
Although this face-to-face learning activity takes place, it adheres to the principle of supporting the safety of students or teachers as well. This is an important and key point to consider by each party. Every school that is going to use this system has to be prepared for a lot of things.
The superintendents from the disdain will later see what the school’s readiness is like. Of course, he 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 first be completed. However, if the school has fulfilled all the necessary things, it can be delivered directly to the department.
For the implementation of the learning itself, the BLENDed learning method will be applied. Where later students study school directly on their side or shifts. To divide one class into two or three, according to the rules. The West Java education office has certainly prepared things that can minimize the spread of covid.
