Home-Based Learning (HBL) was introduced to all primary, secondary, Pre-University and Institute of Higher Learning (IHL) students, including students from Special Education (SPED) schools, as part of the Circuit Breaker measures to keep the COVID-19 outbreak under control.
In this month’s Quick Polls, let’s learn about what people think about Home-Based Learning!
While about one-third of those who participated in the poll feel Home-Based Learning is not effective for students, close to half think it could be.
Home-Based Learning does have its challenges. But on the bright side, after a number of weeks of adjusting to this new environment, students, parents and teachers start to ‘get the hang of it’. Moreover, Home-Based Learning gives parents the chance to be more involved in their children’s education. Over time, students could also rise to the occasion and take a more independent learning approach.
With a little bit of time and effort, Home-Based Learning could work. However, will it be here to stay for the long term?
Do you think that Singapore will continue to implement Home-Based Learning even after Covid-19 is over?
Based on 122 people polled as of 1 March 2021.
1 in 2 think Home-Based Learning will continue even after the pandemic is over. In fact, it will be held regularly for secondary schools and junior colleges starting from Term 3 this year.
We’re still in the early days of Home-Based Learning; it will be exciting to see how it changes the future of education for our students!
