Hyderabad: Coping with online education is turning out to be a challenge not only for teachers but also students even as examinations, especially the Class 10 and 12 Boards, are approaching. Those who are academically inclined are also complaining of inability to keep up with the lessons. Some of them are facing challenges in online examinations and find that the exam papers are tough.
Teachers are suffering from stress as they are constantly working and attending school meetings online. The work has stretched to 12 hours.
There are also complaints of online pranks by students, which many of the teachers are not able to understand or control. Students who are not from the school are logging into online sessions. The major complaint is of the number of absentees. Schools state that their efficacy is down by 50 percent in their assessment to understand the impact of online classes.
Dr Preeti Swaroop, senior psychiatrist, said, “The fear of not excelling like they were the last few years is unsettling them. Face-to-face interaction is something that they are missing and that is also causing loss of interest in studies. This is leading to disorders, low self-esteem and anger. Parents are reaching out to doctors as an obedient child is behaving badly which is causing worry.”
While schools want to re-open, fear of the disease is making them continue with online classes....
