Facebook Live: Supporting children and adolescents attending online classes

The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown our daily routines off-track. One of the biggest impacts of this pandemic has been on children and the way they approach learning in the classroom. Schools have fully shifted to functioning online since the start of the current academic session. This change has impacted the way in which students interact with their peers and teachers. It has also increased the pressure on parents to manage how their child spends their time in the online classes.

Watch our conversation with school counselor Radhika S D’Costa. We discuss how parents and teachers can support children attending online classes.

Who will benefit from this webinar?

This webinar will focused on how teachers and parents can support children attending online classes. The one hour program covered both perspectives, that of how teachers as well as parents can better support their students and children, followed by a Q&A session with our expert.

Teachers play a critical role in students’ emotional wellbeing. Taking classes online has changed their manner of interaction with students. This webinar covered how teachers can identify signs of distress among students—even while conducting online classes; how they can focus on their own self-care; and other tips on creating a mentally healthy environment in virtual classrooms.

Parents, on the other hand, have found themselves in a unique situation where they have the added responsibility of managing their child’s online schooling along with other commitments. There are rising concerns about the effects—on children—of increased screen time; the impact of online learning on children’s academic development and social skills.

This webinar addressed all these concerns and more, with special focus on how parents can care for their own mental health while supporting their children.
