Learning at home shouldn’t look like this. Picture: Picture Alliance
Schools are closed, lectures are canceled, no more time for education? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! If you want, you can access an enormous range.
LEere classrooms, lecture halls, libraries, canceled conferences, trips, club evenings: The Germans have to change their lives properly these days, this also applies to training – both small and large. On Monday, the children were allowed to go back to school to pick up books, notebooks, homework, and now the lessons are canceled.
On the other hand, the coming weeks do not have to be a learning break without learning, on the contrary. The Internet has long been a comprehensive and often free offer in almost all subject areas, in the form of short explanatory videos or long lectures, with and without integrated exercises or certified degrees.
An essential contact point is the video platform Youtube, which belongs to the American Internet company Google. Kai Schmidt, for example, teaches mathematics there, and more than 420,000 people now subscribe to his “Lehrerschmidt” channel. In more than 1500 different short videos, he introduces parabolas or linear functions and offers material for schoolchildren from the first to the tenth grade.
