Edo SUBEB rejigs programme to keep pupils engaged during holiday
A flagship online learning initiative of EdoBEST, EdoBEST@Home is geared at encouraging learning beyond physical classrooms.
It was first launched in 2020 following the outbreak of Covid-19 to keep pupils learning in an era where all schools were shut because of public health concerns. Its current reinvigoration will further bridge learning gaps by giving pupils additional teacher-pupil contact time during the holiday.
It is important that a healthy balance exists between study and recreation to ensure that cognitive development continues as children are at home for the holiday that is why EdoBEST@Home has been reinvigorated.
Participating pupils will have the opportunity to meet their teachers in WhatsApp classrooms on a daily basis. Pupils will receive lessons on the platform, submit assignments and have their work reviewed and corrected.
Parents are to help their children join the classrooms by clicking on links sent to them by Edo SUBEB and permitting their children to use their smartphones to access classes. Educational materials are also available on the Edo SUBEB website for free download and use.
