The learning process is the main ingredient of an intelligent society. Since birth, our brains are constantly sharpened and recording knowledge to cultivate proficiency in various matters. Over the years people have insisted on continuing to seek knowledge, even when faced with major problems or disasters. The learning process never stops, even in the midst of a pandemic and quarantine at home, learning still has a way.
[Important matters during the implementation of the Jakarta PSBB]
In early April 2020, Governor Anies Baswedan established Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) for all Jakarta residents. People are advised not to leave their homes, to reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19. Offices allow employees to work from home, as well as schools and colleges that hold online classes. In order to support the continuation of learning along with the implementation of physical distancing, the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government through the Jakarta Smart City along with the DKI Jakarta Education Office, and a number of other educational associations are holding major collaborations with Sekolah.mu, an application-based blended learning system.
What is Learning Without Limits?
This collaboration resulted in the Unlimited Learning program. As the title implies, this program aims to transcend the space boundary between teachers and students who are encouraged to stay at their respective homes. With the contribution of more than one hundred volunteer schools and teachers in Jakarta, Learning Without Borders aims to create a comfortable and productive learning environment for both teachers and students. Curricula and learning topics are openly available and free for all levels of education, from kindergarten to high school. Classes for the public, parents and employees are also provided.
[Online service provided by the DKI Jakarta Provincial Government]
Various topics such as mathematics, science, and English are not only available in written form, but there are also daily classes that are live streamed via YouTube for students to watch live. Each live class is scheduled at certain hours, but the video recordings will still be accessible from your School's YouTube channel, so you don't have to worry about missing them.
