waking up every morning to build a bright future, am I not on the frontline?
Leaving classes and going back home was not what many people anticipated when they first heard about the covid-19 pandemic but ever since then many in the education sector were left stranded with no option but to stay home with the hope that things will change.
Since this advent has dragged, many have left the sector in search of survival and many people lost their jobs which led to their children being kicked out of institutions while others can barely afford to further their studies because of the current state of the economy.
Before Covid-19 it was a choice to have your child enrolled in a homeschoolingprogrammed , but now it is a choice that many parents have taken to keep their children safe and free from covid-19 as well as to curb the spread of the virus.
The education sector has set up strategies to continue the academic year as well as to adhere to the precautions to save lives as well as offering skills to the youth, but these strategies have delayed the production of skills as students have limited days to go to class, some attending two times a week and the others attending three times a week, vice-versa.
Organiz ations offering to homeschool say that they had noticed a double increase in the number of students who required homeschooling in the first quarter of 2020 as compared to the previous year ( 2019).

The multi-model learning has proven to be the best way to learn and to save children’s lives in this time of a world pandemic, it is a method that is widely expensive and not many people can afford to have their children registered at an institution that cater online syllabus and online assistance, but it is a way that we need to adapt to as the world is constantly changing.
The remote learning method is a method that is here to stay and people in the education sector both young and old must adapt to the method to be competitive. The method is cost-effective and has been used by many institutions in many parts of the world before the covid-19 pandemic.

The tools that are used in multi-model learning are tools that have been developed by software developers in the past and have been improved in the recent years, they have been tested and are proven to be effective in delivering the content and many students who have used this method have excelled, seeing many graduating from universities and younger ones being promoted to further grades.
The Models have forms of communication between students and lectures either in texting or voice notes, the lecture and the student can see each other in the session, and they are able to ask questions or to state if they do not understand.
Some of the software’s that I have used in the education sector is Blackboard which is mainly used by most universities in South Africa and the other software that I have experienced is called Col campus and it is used at Boston College. These tools have worked and are still in use and they are achieving their goals in the industry of education.
The best way to go for the education sector is to focus on offering remote learning and make a budget that will cater for online learning for every child in the sector, laptops are needed and should be included in the budget. Failing to move into the multi-model learning and remaining in the face-to-face method will cause more harm to the lives of those who wake up per morning to attend school and It will be a sign of failing to move forward and neglecting the lives of children by the South African government and other parts of the world.
