With the new scholastic year restarting end of September or beginning of October, doubts as to whether students will be attending school physically have been raised. As the COVID-19 cases register a new spike in daily and active cases, the possibility of online classes for yet another scholastic year is becoming more and more probable. iNews Malta contacted the Malta Union of Teachers (MUT) and the Professional Educator Union (UPE) to get their latest updates on the current situation.
Both organisations stated that it is still too early to give their position on the reopening of schools. The organisations also stated that they are closely observing the epidemiological situation and gathering the necessary data to make any further decisions. Online learning has already shaped the world’s educational process, including Malta’s. This might have immense impact on learning overall, well beyond the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.
