Students prepared for new normal
KUCHING: The State Library in Sibu will be holding a motivational talk titled ‘Belajar Dari Rumah: Persediaan Normal Baharu’ (Learning from Home: Preparation for the New Normal) live via their official Facebook page (@pustaka.sarawak).
The talk will be streamed live on Monday (May 18) at 2.30pm, delivered by Ahmad Faizal Osman, also known as Cikgu Emmet. He is a teacher, writer, and motivation expert.
School students, especially those in secondary school, are encouraged to join attend the talk.
“The current Covid-19 pandemic will make all occupations or tasks as well as life transform into a new norm,” said the State Library in a statement yesterday.
They said that social communication today had to comply with guidelines set by the authorities, such as social distancing, to cut the chain of Covid-19 transmission.
“Learning without a teacher right in front, or in other words learning from home online, may be a new experience for students. Issues may arise, but this is the reality which has to be met,” they said.
They said that some problems which may be faced include slow internet connection, a lack of computers or suitable gadgets, surrounding disturbances, lack of focus, and getting bored or sleepy quickly.
