Most schools are still closed and teachers have to continue educating their students remotely. While online tools like Zoom help educators out while we’re all social-distancing, teaching things online has its own quirks and can drive some people to tears with laughter.
We wanted to make you Pandas smile and to let you know just what distance learning is like from teachers’ perspectives, so Bored Panda has collected a bunch of hilarious tweets about it. Scroll down, enjoy, and upvote your faves.
While some teachers are enjoying teaching their students online, others are exhausted by how difficult some kids find it to follow even the simplest instructions on Google Classroom. Luckily, plenty of teachers have got a great sense of humor and find ways to crack jokes even when things go sideways.
Even though most students are still improving their noggins online, some countries have already relaxed quarantine regulations and are getting kids back in classrooms, step by step. Though every country has its own way of doing things. Denmark is already allowing children up to the age of 11 to return to schools and nurseries, the BBC reports.
Meanwhile, Germany is also allowing students back into schools, though they have to sit at separate desks to ensure that everyone’s social-distancing properly. Students in Berlin went back to class a couple of weeks ago to take their final exams, too.
In Norway, high schools and universities are partially reopening while kindergartens have now fully reopened. France, meanwhile, has declared that primary school students will go back to class from May 11, but classes will have a maximum of 15 students. The Netherlands plans to do the same, though classes will be part-time; secondary students will have to wait until June 1 before they can go back to the schools they’ve (probably) missed so much.
But not everyone’s rushing to leave their homes. Even though South Korean schools reopened in April, they’re still almost entirely empty because it was decided that kids would be learning online. The only people in the classrooms are teachers who communicate with their students via the internet.
