“Distance learning has led to increased academic performance”

Self-isolation benefited schoolchildren in Chukotka

For many, the regime of self-isolation became a test, but in Chukotka they learned how to use their free time to good use - they spend it on training, hobbies, leisure. Irina Naumova, a teacher from Anadyr, spoke about how restrictions affected schoolchildren and teachers in the Autonomous Okrug.

“Distance learning has led to increased academic performance”

Irina Naumova

teacher of elementary school in Anadyr
The training quarter ended with better results than we expected. Even considering the instability of our local Internet. Children took a new form of education much more responsibly than we thought. And this applies not only to younger students (I am in the third grade), which, of course, my parents help me understand. High school students - “advanced users” - are well-versed in all curricula.

The general picture of behavior in our city is as follows: to this day there are no cases of infection in the Chukotka okrug, but people are so in solidarity with compatriots from other regions that even without the introduction of a self-isolation regime, most limited contact. Passers-by on the streets became much less, and this is not related to the weather. Now we communicate, probably even more, but by phone and the Internet.

We have groups in the school community where not only our current affairs are discussed, but also issues of self-education in the field of pedagogy. Now there is time for this. Well, of course, each of us remembered his hobbies! For example, for many years my hands did not reach knitting. I love to crochet, and now, on forced vacations, I can afford to spend time on this.

Other classes include books, virtual visits to museums (including Moscow and St. Petersburg). True, in our situation the concept of “online” has a slightly different meaning: any video is loaded first (sometimes for a long time), and then - look at your health! In communities, we constantly exchange links, and then we discuss what we read and viewed. With our “teacher” life, even on New Year's holidays there was no time for rest - constant events with children did not allow us to devote time to another.

Children on this "endless vacation" also do not get bored. Many of my class attend dance and theater studios. Now the "remote" works like this: teachers give assignments on the Internet, in the same way they check and evaluate completed assignments. Even dancing is now possible in new conditions. And my pets sculpt and embroider ... Free (albeit forced) time, perhaps someone will inspire someone to discover new talents of their own.

The Internet in our area depends on climatic conditions, improvement is gradual, but even with this state of communication, we can solve many issues remotely. Not to mention how important it is for us to keep in touch with other regions of Russia - our relatives live there, who are much more vulnerable in the current situation.

It seems to me that a common problem has united people - we have become kinder, more caring, more careful in statements. I hope that coming out of the crisis, we will keep it.
