How To Improve Children’s Performance in School
The implementation of the K-12 System of Learning may have been more of a burden to most parents as they only see it as an added expense to their annual budget. While we could not disagree with that fact, still what we, as parents, should see it in a more positive perspective.
With the said system, children are molded into a more open-minded individual of not just relying on the outcome of an incident but knowing the process on how the result came about. But with this comes the books who have become the cause of some health issues with our school children.
Each day, my children needs to carry at least 6 books, 8 notebooks some pad papers and other school materials. Although they have their individual lockers, sometimes, this causes the children to fail to bring them home. In return, they are unable to study for their quizzes. It is every student’s responsibility to bring his books all the time, but having the lockers doesn’t seem to be a big help at all.
One exclusive school in Quezon City has started using ebooks in some of their subjects. The cost of an Ipad may not be afforded by anyone, but I guess, giving a specific brand for the students to use should not be implemented. With these ebooks, it lessens the burden of having to carry all the books every day and with it, homeworks can be given online like using Edmodo. Schools can actually ask their students to submit their (written) projects using this site. And this is absolutely more adept to letting children stay connected with their teachers than merely forming a Facebook group. Doesn’t Facebook allow sign up age 16 and above only?
I am not saying that books should be totally eradicated because I also prefer reading books than staring on the computer monitor for hours. But with the help of ebooks it lessens the burden of having to carry books all the time which cause back pain and for some, they have developed bad posture.
Education should always be given importance. But apart from this is also closely monitoring the physical well-being of our children.
