“We have shown that even in exceptional conditions we can organize a successful lesson and for a short period to establish distance learning. “This has been very important, because any time lost in children’s learning and development has unimaginable consequences.”
This was stated by the Minister of Education and Science Milla Carovska, who participated in the international meeting of education ministers from Southeast European countries, hosted by Turkey.
Carovska said that at the moment over 90 percent of students successfully attend online learning, while physical presence learning takes place without any problems.
She also said that the pandemic period has been a test for the education system, but also an opportunity for transformation, in order for students to acquire knowledge and skills.
“Apart from digitalization and investments in access to IT infrastructure, the Ministry of Education and Science is strongly committed to investing in the development of teachers’ skills, as the most important factor for the quality of teaching,” said Carovska.
