“Are you surprised?”
On the 25th, at about 2 pm on the 25th, the teacher of the high school, Song Kyung-hoon Miryang Girls' High School teacher, who reflected her face on a large monitor installed in the conference room of Yeongdeungpo-gu, Seoul, said, “My face trembled, and I trembled.” With Eun Eun-hye's deputy prime minister, minister of education, and superintendent of metropolitan and provincial superintendents participating, teacher Song unveiled a remote lesson while unintentionally changing the screen.
Teacher Song held her face on one side of the screen through the video conferencing application 'Zoom' and put a KakaoTalk chat room with students on the other side. When he asked, “What kind of thing comes to mind when you say 'science'?” Soon, students' answers, such as' Mysterious Science ', came up one after another. “Even if you give a message during a remote class with a video, the voice may be cut off depending on the children's environment, so you can write the content together in the chat window,” said Song.
In the aftermath of the new coronavirus infection (Corona19), schools in the country are closed, and it seems that some schools will be able to conduct remote classes in this way after school starts in April. This is because the Ministry of Education is considering ways to simultaneously promote general school and online school as the corona19 spreads.
◆ “On-line school opening is also available in case of emergency”
During the online business agreement between the Ministry of Education, the Provincial and Provincial Offices of Education, the Korea Education and Research Information Service (KERIS), and EBS, Yu said, “On April 6th, we are considering concurrently studying online school and related school opening methods.” This means that the spread of corona19 before the school day can make it possible to start school through remote classes in areas or individual schools where it is considered difficult to start school. The policy of the Ministry of Education is that even after school starts, if school suspension is carried out due to the occurrence of confirmed students in the school, the school can be operated through remote classes. Deputy Prime Minister Yu said, “I will promote the method of recognizing the number of days and hours for remote classes, and I will promptly announce the detailed operating standards after collecting opinions from the field.
In fact, when online school starts, there is no choice but to raise a question about the quality of class due to insufficient attendance management. The Ministry of Education plans to expand the proportion of real-time interactive classes demonstrated to the public as much as possible before the start of the school day, but it is likely that teachers will watch videos produced by companies such as EBS or companies produced by EBS, etc. . Lee Sang-soo, Curriculum Policy Officer of the Ministry of Education, said, “Distance classes that are recognized as class hours may not have interactive classes, but there may be various forms such as watching general lectures or discussions. I explained.
It is also pointed out that students without audio equipment, such as smartphones and PCs, or those with visual impairments may be marginalized. Recently, the Ministry of Education surveyed students without IT devices, and found that the number was 132,000. The Ministry of Education is planning to establish a support plan by contacting all students during this week to check the existence of IT devices and to rent the devices owned by the school. Supplementary measures such as fish videos are also being prepared for the visually impaired.
◆ Academic organization “50% refund required”
The academy group said, “It is no longer meaningful to leave and open,” and urged the government to strengthen support by clarifying the intention to refrain from cooperating with leave. On the previous day, the Ministry of Education announced that it would close the school for non-compliance with the quarantine guidelines or claim the right to reimburse if there is a confirmed person.
President Lee Yoo-won of the Korea Academy General Association said at a press conference on this day, “The school has been closed for more than a month, and the nation's 1 million academy education families have been in a difficult environment where they have to worry about their livelihood.” “We have to pay the rent and pay the rent, so if there is no tuition fee, we have no choice but to suffer financial damage immediately.”
They say that the government measures that have come out are limited to indirect support such as special guarantees, and even that it takes a considerable amount of time for the actual academy to get help. President Lee said, “Since the Enforcement Decree of the School Act has been revised to return tuition fees for quarantine measures, schools are eagerly requested to provide 50% of refunds like kindergartens.” In addition, they requested retroactive application of employment maintenance support funds and simplified government loan application procedures.
The Federation of Schools insisted that the school was recently closed in the wake of Corona19. Cho Moon-sil, Chairman of the Gwangnam Branch of the Federation of Schools, said, “As of yesterday, the rate of school closings in our area is around 14-15%, and more than 5% of them think about closing.” I can't even do it. ” Because of these circumstances, the Academy of Education plans to focus on “strengthening quarantine” rather than cooperating with the government's recommendations for closing the government.
