Flexible learning in UAE: A case for e-lessons post COVID-19 too

It may not be the only way to get the content across, but a section coordinator at an Abu Dhabi school said distance learning helped teachers tap into different facets of students’ personalities.

“For the education sector, the sudden dive into distance learning revealed an added dimension to the way we could train, interact and catch up. So even though it cannot fully replace in-class education — mainly because teachers and students have an irreplaceable emotional bond — distance learning is an add-on that can help us explore new elements,” Merlin Maria Shanthi, secondary section coordinator at Global Indian International School.

Distance learning — the education sector’s answer to flexible, remote working during the COVID-19 outbreak — was first mandated across UAE schools in March. Even now, however, parents are free to opt for distance learning for the upcoming term. But even beyond this, Shanthi believes this form of flexible work schedule will continue.
