I have neighbours who are sadly moving away from here very soon – we moved in at roughly the same time and have gradually got to know and respect each other greatly over the years.  They are down sizing and moving to the coast where […]

Online Learning Fills The Gap In School Provision

Online Learning Fills The Gap In School Provision

We’ve really had a tough time lately – firstly with covid pandemic completely shattering our normal day to day lives, where we had lockdowns and eventually schools shutting doors to students.  There were those vulnerable kiddies who needed to be in school for their protection but generally classes were very jerkily transferred online for all but a very small number of children.  This caused an enormous headache for the school heads – they needed to be able to guide their staff in how to achieve this feat as smoothly as possible without having a nervous breakdown themselves.  It obviously did fall in to place eventually but there was a lot to be desired in the way the department of education handled the problems.    What has helped many families and students is the profusion of home stdy courses and e-learning products.  Once a student, of basically any age, gets themselves into the mind set of learning at home with their laptop or tablet, they can achieve wonderful things.

For the lesser heeled of society, family choices on schooling are considered and the child would attend the local grammer or secondary school, according to their 11+ exam result.    Lessons were always classroom or sports field based and with no online presence, it was much […]

Life’s Rich Tapestry Made Richer With E-Learning

Life’s Rich Tapestry Made Richer With E-Learning

I very happily belong to most of the heritage organisations in this country.  I made the decision some years ago that I would try to support anything to do with historic houses, gardens and properties in general, within my very limited scope as an untrained but interested onlooker.  Having visited many properties over the last few years, I wish now that I had taken training to become something more useful than a private secretary.  There are some great courses out there – I’m not sure if learning to repair and restore tapestries would be amongst them, but I know for sure that e-learning and degree courses have really come on leaps and bounds since I was a teen growing into an awkward adult!  I scoff at my own achievements but these days, being a fantastic hands on personal secretary is something to be proud of and courses can get you to that very easily and effeciently.

Schools Out for Virus Control

Schools Out for Virus Control

Parents are currently busy trying to organise home schooling for all children whether they usually attend a state school or one of the many fee paying private ones.    Because of the scare of the virus spreading through the younger generation, the government closed all schools last year.   The schools are having to provide a variety of online learning resources and curricuum subjects.  There are some places available at schools for the children of key workers so these also need to have classroom lessons provided.  Whether these actions od have a long term affect on this cohort of youngsters is of course unknown – it’s the first time since the mass evacuations of 1939 that school has been so interrupted and for such a long time.   In Europe there has been generally a closure of schools this year except in France but a recent spike in virus cases has called this into question.    One very interesting study later on would be which methods were the most successful in maintaining educaiton levels as opposed to maintaining virus safety.

Thinking back to years when I was a much younger office trainee, we didn’t have the online education and e-learning that is so fantastic today.  All our opportunities had to be found in text books and stuff from the library.  Although my own father was […]
