West Java Education Office implements online learning amid the pandemic
During a pandemic like today, the West Java education office will also perform many activities so that the learning process continues to run well. Even in each region, they also implement a new ya ng learning process to keep students able to reach the syllabus for exams and increase.
Some schools, especially vocational schools, even carry out the learning process face-to-face. However, this also applies in some places and specifically only for internships. The reason is that in this vocational school, skills are important things that students must possess.
Meanwhile, the internship process is also carried out directly face-to-face. Soit has to be done directly. In addition, the West Java degree program also provides quite a bit of help for students who can’t afford it so they can continue studying. Such as providing free devices and also free data allowances to teachers and students.
But the introduction of this new learning caused many parents to complain. Because they couldn’t teach their children any unknown lessons. Especially students who cannot operate this new learning system. The government is also working on practical learning by applying several important points.
Online learning during the Covid pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic since 2020 has actually had an impact on many sectors. In the field of education, too, it is affected. Students and students who are still in school should feel the impact of going homeschool or online learning. The program is run in all schools.
Just like the West Java education office, it also implements an online school program for all students in West Java. This policy itself is actually carried out at all educational sites throughout Indonesia, even in the world. Initially, learning was carried out face to face. But that has changed as the coronavirus pandemic has spread.
This home-based learning is done to give students a new experience. But even if it is run remotely, the educators must be able to reach the goal of the curriculum increase, and a graduation must be carried out. However, this new learning method received many negative responses.
Especially from the guardian parents. Many of them complained of inconvenience and could not 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 return to face-to-face.
Because it uses the Internet, it certainly also requires quota data. Meanwhile, the government is also giving free allowances to students and teachers. So, it will ease the burden during the learning process during the current pandemic. In West Java itself, internet quota help also provides for the smooth learning process.
Now the new normal is being implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic, the government and the West Java Education Office are also implementing a new program, namely to carry out learning using the face-to-face method. But still for some rules are imposed in the implementation of this learning process. So it can still minimize covid cases.
Although the school’s location is in the green zone, it is still not directly enforced face-to-face learning. Because there are still some points that need to be checked first. If the school meets the criteria, it can complete the program. For criteria such as schools are mandatory in the green zone.
Jamn to face-to-face activities are also prioritized for students who are not supported by the Internet network or are called empty spots. So, in fact, not all learning sites can implement this learning system in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. Although it is included in the green zone area.
Meanwhile, the vocational high school or vocational high school itself, from the West Java education office, this face-to-face system will be applied lessons, the nature of which is only practical. Because if you want a certificate of your own skills, you need to practice right away.
Even teachers are not all able to 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 diseases that will interfere with the learning process during this pandemic.
West Java educators received vaccines
The West Java Education Office has proposed that educators be vaccinated throughout West Java. Of course, the vaccine injection will still be carried out in stages. Especially for educators who want to perform face-to-face learning activities.
Not only that, but the offer will also be prioritized for teachers who are old. The vaccination phases provided by the government will also be given according to the program. In fact, vaccination for educators is very important to apply after being used by medical personnel.
Of course, this is applied so that the learning process can be done properly without anyone getting covid. For the provision of vaccines to the teachers themselves, it is proposed according to the number of their own workers in West Java. Of course, suntican be given to teachers who perform direct learning activities first.
Based at the West Java education office, for those who themselves engage in direct offline learning, not all of them. Only a few hundred of them have been adapted to the rules in force. In fact, there are still many schools that have not been able to implement this learning because they are in places with high covid cases.
In order to accept the vaccine to function optimally, all those who will be screened must also conduct an examination first. This is very important to apply so that the vaccine can be maximized by administration. Even if they have received this injection themselves, they still have to adhere to health protocols.
Direct Learning Programs in West Java
Teaching and learning activities held directly by the West Java Education Office itself have also prepared what the scheme is like. As for this learning activity itself, it is also carried out in stages , first paying attention to how the zone of spread in the area and the efforts and preparedness for prevention.
Although this face-to-face learning activity was made, it adheres to the principle of also supporting the safety of students or teachers. This is an important and important point that must be considered by all parties. Any school that will use this system must be prepared for many things.
The superintendents of the education department will later see what the school’s preparedness is like. Of course, it is accompanied by the village leader and the local subdistrict leader. If there are still many shortcomings, it must first be equipped . But if the school has fulfilled all the necessary things, it can be conveyed directly to the department.
For the implementation of the learning itself, a blended learning method will be used. Where later students will study to live school again or change. So, a class will be divided into two or three according to the rules. The West Java Education Office has certainly prepared things that can minimize the spread of COVID.
