We all have our complaints . . . and I have them too.
But are there are any good things about our current (mandated) remote learning?
Possible positive sentiments on remote learning . . .
- No bulletin boards to maintain.
- The weather doesn’t impact the school day.
- There isn’t a line for the copier.
- No school traffic–anywhere.
- Learning for all–new systems, new platforms, new methods . . .
- Shoes aren’t required. (I LOVE being barefoot!)
- We’re building lessons and curriculum for the future.
- A national conversation on the amount of work, and the true essential place of public education, has been thrust into the spotlight . . .
It was hard, difficult, to come up with this list, but I do like to frame things into a lesson, or a positive–whenever possible. It took some stretching and thinking to find these, but they seem reasonably uplifting. In other words, when I am most frustrated, or sad, I have something to reference on what I am gaining or enjoying, or what others might be gaining and enjoying, from this experience.
Do you have any other positive outcomes?
