Nos melhores casos, as turmas que antes faziam um retorno entre os 80-90% de tarefas semanais, estão a fazer 50-60% com tarefas a 10 dias ou mais. O ano lectivo acabou, apenas não informaram a 5 de Outubro ou mandaram a informação pelos CTT Expresso e perdeu-se no caminho.

Administrators, however, are more supportive of picking up instruction where it left off when school closures began.
Education leaders are laying out plans to reopen schools in the fall, but without the safety net of a vaccine, the school year looks unpredictable at best.
With a lot of these decisions still up in the air, it’s become difficult for teachers to start preparing for next year in terms of their classroom plans. As an educator herself, Ms. Williams has experienced the difficulty of adapting to the online classroom and misses a lot of those human connections much like her students do as well.
“You can’t teach students if they don’t have a relational buy-in and that rapport,” she said.
Having those face-to-face connections makes both the teachers and the students feel better. Being online has made it more difficult to connect with each other; however, this upcoming semester would be even more so having never met these students in person before. After the last few weeks of school though, Ms. Williams is hopeful.
“We’re trying to take a look at what works and what doesn’t and how we can make things better if we have to go to an online model and go from there,” she said.
