Virginia commented on E-Learning Simplified.

Kian, I think of all your points, easy interface is the most important, for students, teachers and parents when discussion at-distance learning. Your thinking of the difficulties for younger students and their helpers is insightful. The logistics of learning boggle the mind in the best of circumstances, much less under the circumstances that COVID-19 has placed everyone. Your ap idea is thought-provoking and promising, with so much yet to figure out before one can be designed. But it is so necessary that one hopes it happens soon.

Virginia commented on The Chronic School Hater Challenge

Ngozi, you make so clear the many challenges to learning from the student point of view. From your various points, I take away the lack of connections of learning to the student's world as one of the most important. If the educational system can place learning within the context of living, how much more meaningful might that learning become. I appreciate your clear examples made with connections to games, already likely available in many homes, to show that making meaningful connections can begin easily.
