The silver lining of confinement

We are still in the process of adjusting to this new normal “hybrid” mode, some students are in the classroom and others are at home. While on one hand, it may be challenging to see the advantages this offers, on the other hand, there is always a different perspective to view this situation through positive lenses.

If there is something, we have learned it is that students who are confined need to communicate their feelings and socialize even if they can´t do so in person.  It is not easy for them to refrain from going to the park or seeing their friends. It is important to give them the opportunity to express themselves or have the opportunity to be the protagonist and take action leading activities or class discussions.  Examples of activities that foster these needs and skills: reading a book to their friends, leading a game, showing things around their house that could enrich their learning engagements.
