In this new academic year, Face-to-face Learning (FTFL, –PTM or Pembelajaran Tatap Muka in Indonesian) has been carried out by all schools in Indonesia after more than 2 years of online learning. According to the Minister of Education, FTFL must be carried out in stages so that children do not experience learning loss. There are fears that the longer children spend learning online or through online schooling, only that it will cause a lost generation and there is a real risk of the children's literacy skills decreasing and their interest in reading in general (literacy loss).
FTFL is able to directly address some of the psychological problems of children who are getting bored with distance learning and need to interact directly with teachers and their friends. Many children have complained of difficulty concentrating during the online learning process.
When your child has started FTFL, what should be prepared so that there is no transmission of the Covid-19 virus? Before leaving for school:
During activities at school, students must keep their distance from each other and always wear masks. Using their own stationery, not using a friend's. Teachers must also be vigilant and must remind students to always keep their distance, use masks and wash their hands diligently. Especially for elementary school students who will still need to be reminded.
Just as important is that when your little one arrives home, is to follow the guidelines given by the COVID-19 Handling Task Force:
Has your little one followed all the health protocols during FTFL?
