Due to the continuous development of the epidemic of new crown pneumonia, the Ministry of Education recently issued the notice on the postponement of the opening of the spring semester in 2020, which requires that all institutions of higher learning, local schools, primary and secondary schools, kindergartens, etc. affiliated to the Ministry should postpone the opening of the spring semester appropriately. At the same time, offline training activities have been suspended in many places, and learning support has been provided for students by using Internet and information education resources, no class, no teaching, no learning.
At present, there are about 270 million students in our country. When hundreds of millions of students come to online education, whether its education departments, training institutions, teachers, parents, students, they all face a big challenge.
National team emergency dispatching resources can meet the needs of teaching
School is the main body of teaching and the most important force of online teaching. At present, the Ministry of education plans to open the national online cloud classroom on February 17, which was originally planned to open normally in most regions. Based on the curriculum resources of the project of one teacher, one excellent course and one teacher for one lesson, schools around the world can organize students to carry out online learning.
Considering the lack of network or slow network speed in some areas, the Ministry of education will also arrange China education television to broadcast relevant courses and resources through TV channels.
In order to enrich online high-quality learning resources, the Ministry of education coordinates with education departments in Beijing, Shanghai and other places, as well as primary and secondary schools affiliated to Tsinghua University and secondary schools affiliated to Renmin University of China, to open the online learning resources of the local school to the public free of charge during the extended opening period; at the same time, the peoples Education Publishing House also opens the digital teaching resources database of peoples education point reading to the public free of charge.
For college students, as of February 2, the Ministry of education has organized 22 online course platforms, with more than 24000 free online courses, covering 12 disciplines of undergraduate course and 18 professional categories of junior college and higher vocational college, for colleges and universities to choose and use, many of which can accumulate credits. These resources are expected to meet the needs of teaching after the start of school.
In addition to the national team organized by the Ministry of education, various regions have also launched local version and campus characteristic version which are more suitable for local and school teaching.
This year, Beijing will implement the new college entrance examination reform. According to the original plan, on February 25, senior three students in Beijing will receive the citys unified examination. The sudden outbreak of the epidemic, so that the majority of students to meet the test learning into a race with the college entrance examination time online teaching battle.. The reporter learned from a middle school in Haidian District that at the end of January, the school launched a class recording initiative to all senior three teachers. From February 10, all online courses were online. Since February 2, the graduation year has officially started the online Q & a class, and students voluntarily sign up for it. At 9 a.m. every day, the online Q & a class of each subject for one hour is regularly opened.
In Pingliang, Gansu Province, air class mode has been opened. At this time in previous years, junior and senior three students have already started school. This year, due to the epidemic, we have launched the online teaching for graduates and other winter vacation homework guidance. Chen zhennian, director of the information center of Pingliang Municipal Bureau of education, said that while using the education cloud platform to protect students online learning, Pingliang actively coordinated Alibaba nail and other relevant education information enterprises to provide online learning resources and class channels for teachers and students in the city free of charge through various forms.
These online education platforms and online media can cover 29 high schools, 134 junior high schools, 779 primary schools and 263 teaching sites in the city, to minimize the impact of the epidemic on students learning.
Educational institutions are busy with customers, and whether consumers approve is the key
The Ministry of Education said that during the outbreak, social forces are expected to actively participate in cooperation and provide more diverse public welfare and high-quality learning resources.
In fact, there is no need to call for the no suspension of classes brought by the epidemic, coupled with winter vacation, online education has become just needed. Education and training institutions across the country, either active or passive, have begun to seize the line.
The training institutions, which are already in hot competition online, regard this no suspension of classes as an opportunity for public welfare display and a rare opportunity for customers.
On January 24, Netease Youdao excellent course announced that it will provide free online winter vacation courses for primary and secondary school students in Wuhan; on January 26, tal will provide free live platform and technical support for training institutions in Hubei Province; on January 27, New Oriental donated 20 million yuan and opened all spring classes live courses of New Oriental online free of charge, with the first batch of 1 million
In addition to professional educational institutions, Internet giants have also joined the tide of online education.
Alipays little treasure education integrates free online education resources to provide more convenient access; Ali nail provides free video conferencing for schools free of charge; Tencent education combines several free teaching services, and launches non stop learning alliance; Taobao University announced that it will open exclusive channels for K12 schools, higher vocational colleges and educational institutions, and free deployment of cloud classes.
Usually a new student needs to make many phone calls. Now every day, parents take the initiative to consult online and have an experience class. Mr. Wang of Xueersi online school said.
Online courses let consumers have free pies to eat, and some of the original offline courses make consumers a little tangled. At present, the country has called for the suspension of offline training institutions for teaching, and the line is either temporarily closed or transferred to online after work.
The winter holiday class of Beijing Yimu sunshine art training center was originally scheduled to open from February 4th to February 19th, but it has now been closed. Xiao, the schools director, told reporters that the schools winter classes offered a great deal of discounts, with the minimum price of 106 yuan, about half of the price of the regular courses. Originally, this offer can only be used for holidays, and it cant be extended after expiration. But now, schools can only extend their holiday classes to normal. We havent figured out how much we will lose. We cant let students lose anyway. Xiao said.
Because of the delay, Yimu sunshine has not yet offered to refund the students. Previously, Jerome education also announced that all offline courses of Beijing school after the winter holiday will be online, with the same teachers, time and courses. The course fee will be charged at 30% discount. If you are not satisfied with online courses, you can refund the full amount.
However, some training institutions directly transferred offline courses to the online, and did not give a discount scheme, which caused parents dissatisfaction.
The off-line training course, which was scheduled to start on February 10, has been changed to on-line training, without saying how the cost will be calculated. In an English training institution, a parent who reported an annual course told the reporter, we report a small offline class, which costs 19000 yuan a year, about 400 yuan for the next class, which is much more expensive than the online one-to-one course. If its a small online class, it may only cost tens of yuan. Now we have changed it to online small class. How about the money? He asked the question to the head teacher, but he didnt get a reply for the time being.
Experts say the shift from offline teaching to online education is not just about changing the environment.
Without the supervision of teachers, the effect of online education will inevitably be discounted. The air class is more demanding than the school class. According to Shi zhanbiao, Professor of the Institute of psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and deputy director and Secretary General of the psychological Promotion Committee of the staff of the Chinese Psychological Society, teachers and parents should make their children realize that the air classroom is the real classroom, with the same time, homework and management as the school teaching, which is sloppy and perfunctory at all.
In the face of the epidemic, even if it is not easy to see students, teachers still play an important role in students learning, and still have incomparable influence and driving force. Hou Zhijin, a professor at the school of psychology of Beijing Normal University, believes that teachers should help students to make clear their learning objectives, supervise their work and properly guide and cultivate their childrens good work, rest and habits.
Nowadays, childrens learning is more completed in the family, which means that the executive power of parents will greatly affect childrens learning outcomes. At present, Beijing has issued a policy that dual employee families can arrange a parent to accompany their child with pay at home. However, how to urge students to study is still a headache for parents. Every day, we watch video, live broadcast, online punch in, class discussion, and strictly implement the requirements of teachers. A parent told reporters, its still winter vacation, its just optional action, theres no schools prescribed action . I dont know what will happen when school really starts. Anyway, in a few days, online classes will be fully developed. The industry generally believes that this is not only the need to respond to the epidemic, but also an opportunity for teaching reform. If we can make full use of the advantages of online teaching and innovate the teaching and learning reform with the deep integration of information technology and education and teaching, it may be a beneficial attempt to promote the reform of learning methods and improve teaching efficiency.
