All of us miss regular schools. We crave to meet our friends and teachers in person, to have fun in the playfield and to have chit-chats in the school corridors, etc. But would we miss any part of online schooling once we get back to our ‘old-normal’? Frankly, I never pondered about this question as I was too busy pining for all the activities (like school culturals) that I would have enjoyed participating in if only there were no pandemic and we all went to schools as usual. Now, that I think about it, I do find certain things which I would miss once we bid adieu to online schools.
The first thing I would miss, (as silly as it may sound) is sitting cross-legged. No, I’m not kidding. For me, sitting cross-legged on a chair is hundred times more comfortable than letting my legs dangle from a school bench.
Second in the list comes recorded sessions. One big advantage of online classes is that the teachers record the meeting. So, if I didn’t understand any concept, I can replay the recordings again and again until I get it. Also, if I miss out noting down any point which the teacher had dictated, I could easily look it up in the recorded video.
Lastly, I would really miss the online school timings. Normally, we have around nine periods every day and spend approximately seven hours in regular schools. However, online schools are just around four hours! Though teachers give extra assignments to keep us occupied for the rest of the day!
