We know how hard it can be to study online. Apart from the sometimes-faulty internet connection, it might be a bit harder to focus with minute distractions here and there. At a time like this, students are put under a lot of pressure — contributing to it is having less physical and social interactions.
Manila House's webinar Preparing The Filipino Students For Higher Education During A Pandemic moderated by Bambina Olivares was joined by renowned speakers: Felicia Atienza, President, CEO and Founder of the Chinese International School of Manila; Henry Motte-Muñoz, Founder and CEO of Edukasyon.ph; Dr Michael Alba, President of Far Eastern University; Emmanuel S. de Dios, Professor Emeritus at the University of the Philippines School of Economics; and Elizabeth Zobel de Ayala, Chairman and Co-founder of Teach for the Philippines.
After the webinar, we've compiled tips to help each student striving for success in such a challenging time:
1. Create A Daily Routine
The Chinese International School of Manila's President Felicia Atienza says that creating a routine can be helpful. Having an organised routine can help students create healthy habits. This even helps students adjust to change. Based on research, having new habits ultimately improves both mental and psychological conditions. Simply start with a morning routine and begin building towards a daily routine to have a more productive day.
