It started so well. The government boasted of the teachers.
Thursday, 12. in march we received notice that schools were closed, and Friday the 13. march at 9.00 we were up there with digital teaching. It was not on the teachers.Mona Engebretsen Show more
group conversations on the web, sangstund live from the kitchen table. Toddlers on the lap and the use of unfamiliar tools. The result was impressive. We had dagtilbud to students with parents in the key roles and vulnerable children, some had the teacher on the thread each day. No wonder people clapped.
Since we got information about to open for the youngest students we got time to prepare. Here there was much that had to be arranged! We read the tutor carefully made plans, ommøblerte classrooms (one metre between the desks), measured up aprons (one metre between the pupils), created new groups (cohorts 15), divided into the schoolyard into zones, brought in teachers and what with the SFO-staff? Kohortene should be maintained on the SFO.Confidential note about the older schoolchildren: "High" smittefare
Whew! When the students came back we spent a few days at the hand washing procedures (upon arrival, before food, after food, after friminutt, lukewarm water and ph-neutral soap), pultvaskerutiner (use soft soap, no only Zalo) new avstandsrutiner (a meter inside and out, soccer is okay, sink it!), new uteskolerutiner (please be there a lot, but don't forget the professional).
Students have to get acquainted with new groups and new teachers. It was not easy, but the people and the government was still impressed.
When should the rest back? Be prepared for short deadlines! But what should we be prepared for? All the back? Only the seniors had? Half the days? Every other day? Roll up your sleeves and make plans for different scenarios so that we are ready.
At 18.00 the 7. in may came the instruction: Schools open for all next week! The new tutor made us relieved. Kohortstørrelsen be adapted to local conditions, and we can dissolve the 15 groups. Slightly larger groups. Free teacher resources.
the New plans. New logistics. The new groups. Still a lot uteskole and one metre between each student. One teacher per cohort. Each school had to find out what was possible for them. Half days, half of the groups, regardless of prerequisites; the schools took the oldest students with enthusiasm.Turn On the LydErrorAllerede plus customer?

So stilled the applause. Aftenposten 19. may: "I'm worried that some schools violates the right to education, "says barneombud Inga Bejer Engh" and further: "(...) the policy is interpreted and practiced very differently (...)"
And where were the schools left with svarteper. We were too poor. But we had the guide, so there we were standing in.
Dagsnytt 18 and 20. may: the Schools in Bergen will provide students leksefri out the year bl.a. because it is difficult to comply with smittevernhensyn when books are transported between school and home. Marte see for example, Right, was upset. She accused the schools to: "(...) pushing coronasituasjonen in front of him."No plans for summer vacation-cuts
We were shocked, but we had the tutor.
But then; evening News 21. may: Espen Nakstad: "(...) students should be approximately equal to full school days."
What basis has he to say it? Has he measured up to a metre between each desk? He knows to the size of the classes? He says the schools interpret this guide strictly: "When the need is for indoor, cooperation, require this large enough room to ensure at least one meter between the students."? We can interpret a meter?
We interpret not, Nakstad. We follow the order, we loyal have been doing since 12. march. We are not smitteverneksperter. We are educators. And therefore, we have taken the great responsibility of providing safe schools seriously. Therefore, we have followed the instructions to the letter.
do Not push the responsibility for reducing access to quality schooling over in the us. Replace the wizard with "washing hands and good luck to" have full classes and full days. And we do not need applause, we just need confidence.To close, it was only right Debate
