The COVID-19 crisis has truly restructured the entire world and changed almost everything, including how schools are done these days. Instead of going to a physical school, students learn from the comforts of their home while teachers do lessons over the internet using video conferencing apps or producing printed learning modules.

Due to these changes, however, a lot challenges are faced by teachers and students alike. A lot of teachers struggle with the new technology they have to use to make their lessons while students have difficulty understanding the modules on their own.

Teachers also have a problem getting their students to listen properly while in class, especially because these kids often have a lot of distractions at home!

Ma’am Angela De Ocampo, a Mathematics teacher in Lagao National High School (Main) in South Cotabato, has found a solution to these online class issues. To make the online class more realistic for her students, she uses a white board for the discussion.

Although done via a video conferencing app, the class takes the form of a real classroom. Kids are more attentive to the lesson because the teacher explains the lessons as if it was being done in the classroom, in a face-to-face class.

To make sure that everyone participates, Ma’am Angela makes the students write their computations in the chatbox. She also uses the chatbox to reply to the kids, particularly if they are having a hard time with their lessons and have questions.

Math is often considered by most students as one of the most difficult subjects, but this amazing teacher is trying her best to make the class more realistic and lessons easier for the students to understand. The setup also helps them learn more because she tries her best to explain to them.

I really appreciated the efforts of the teacher for making her online class more interactive by using white board and teaching the students as if they are in the classroom,” said Ma’am Helen J. Ranan, Assistant to the Principal, after completing the class monitoring that day.
