The Bali provincial government plans to continue virtual learning for students when the Covid-19 pandemic comes to an end.
Bali Governor, I Wayan Koster stated that the education sector has developed a better learning system for students through online classes since the Covid-19 pandemic struck in 2020. “We will continue this learning method by combining virtual classes with in-person learning at schools as we have grown, and developed better methods since the Covid-19 pandemic started over a year ago.” Koster said on Wednesday (28/7).
During the plenary meeting on Wednesday, Koster explained that he would discuss this program to all the related officials regarding this plan as this program would potentially increase the capacity of public schools in Bali. “Through this program, our public school is expected to receive more students without adding more classes or buildings as most of the learning process would be done virtually.” Koster added.
Koster also plans to propose this program to the Indonesian Education Minister, Nadim Makarim as he claimed that this learning process would be much more efficient. “I have developed a plan, where students wouldn’t be required to attend 100% in-person. And I believe that this program could solve the common problem where many children were unable to register themselves to our public schools due to the limited capacities.” Koster concluded.
