Education Minister: Home-based teaching, learning not restricted to online platforms

PETALING JAYA: The delivery of home-based teaching and learning (PdPR) for students does not need to be restricted to online platforms only, says Education Minister Dr Mohd Radzi Md Jidin.

He said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Jan 27) that teachers are allowed the flexibility of setting appropriate PdPR for their students.

“Among the offline methods (some teachers) used are providing learning or exercise modules to students who, upon the completion of their exercise, will return the modules to their teachers for marking, ” he said.

Radzi said that modules are handed out to students through various approaches.

“Some schools use the drive-through method. Many teachers also send modules to students’ homes.

“In fact, I was informed that teachers from SMK Pulau Gaya, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, board boats to send materials to their students, ” he said, commending teachers for their determination in imparting knowledge to their charges.

Radzi also thanked parents for their support and encouragement to teachers.
