When I say I am vehemently having hard time learning, I don't only say it for myself but I am speaking as someone part of a whole society all having the same tumult rendezvousing inside the head-the students of the present time.
There are numerous issues that any understudy faces with the way that instruction is being managed nowadays. To begin with on the list I would like to enjoy our consideration to is the reality that each understudy is being challenged by the changes made to their lives not as it were as understudies but as people. In truth, each one of us was challenged by these exceptional changes. It may be a extreme organize of life as a understudy to all of a sudden move from being instructed with few to truly hands-on direction from a instructor to abruptly learning on a student’s claim tirelessness and self-help. Sure there are very few understudies who don't require consideration from instructors but the lion's share do, numerous of us, counting myself, require a making a difference hand from our instructors. The truth that we, in a few way loose this hand makes it indeed harder for us to manage with the at that point challenge in learning. There are few times where our instructors reach out to us understudies but as much as I would like to appreciate it, I have to say that it will never level the same amount of learning every student gets with the old form or learning.
Another challenge, and likely one of the greatest challenges of online learning is the precariousness of web association. The reality that Philippines have an awfully destitute web association does not make this circumstance news to everyone. Maybe, I may not be the as it were one who vented out the disappointment of the unending “loading…” to the things close my locate. It is genuine that the gradualness and precariousness of the web connection makes it indeed harder to memorize and to communicate.
If I were to be honest enough, I would also like to add that another thing that hinders learning through online is the incapability of some students, including myself to keep oneself away from the computer and do other things that are far less necessary than studying. I had been through a lot of times where I had to fight with myself between doing what is essential, and what is captivating in the eye, between what is required for me to do and what is making me happy to do. The presence of social media and other social networking sites, which, if I may add, is the only setting that lets us get communicated with the people around us, makes it harder to have focus in learning.
Needless to say all the components that make online learning a lot challenging than learning face-to-face, we do know that it is indeed hard to educate one’ s self today. However, we do need to recognise the fact that there is no such thing as always a glossy and clean road. We will always have our rough roads where we may swerve and stop, a rough day, week, month, or year where we may shed buckets of tears, but as cliché as it may sound, nothing in this world is permanent; everything is just for a specific time span; everything is temporary. One day, we will all be through these hardships and what will matter by then is not the memory of hardship, but the way we cope with the hardships and challenges. Just like how there is an end to every endless “loading…” there will be a time for “finished.”
A magnitude 5.8 earthquake shook the south of the Philippine capital on May 12.
Earthquakes should be expected, but the earthquake, which occurred at a depth of 112 km, is unlikely to cause harm.
"Because it is a deep earthquake, it took place over a large area," said Renato Solidum, head of Phivolcs.
He also added that there was no threat of a tsunami.
The epicenter was reported in the province of Mindoro and was felt in the capital Manila.
