Distance learning became the final option of the Department of Education to continue the students’ learning in the Philippines amid the pandemic.

The Philippine government devised a plan in order to cope with the changes brought by the pandemic, and one of those plans is to adapt with the “new normal.” And for the education, distance learning defines the new normal.

October 05, 2020 marked the beginning of the new normal in Philippine education. Students should stay at home, work on their modules, attend either the radio or television broadcast of the lessons, or listen to the online classes as if they are still in the normal classroom setting.

But for those students who do not have a choice but to work on their modules, the parents or the guardians are the ones responsible to help them understand the lessons.

In a Facebook post by Lino Butay, he captioned it with “Welcome to MODULE LEGENDS” while showing a photo of a woman with dark eye bags. This photo immediately conveyed the message and went viral.

Many reacted to this post and shared their personal experiences pertaining to the distance learning, and one commented with, ” Dapat may sweldo talaga ang mga nanay..sobrang hirap.”

Another added, “Ganito na tayo pagkatapos ng isang taon sa pagsagot ng modules maging zombie,” while another said, “kaka-stress.”

With all these comments, it is undoubtedly true that everyone has to adjust; not just the students, parents, and guardians, but the teachers as well. They are parents too who have children of their own whom they should also teach. Their children have online classes too as well as  modules.

What is needed right now is patience, understanding, and hope; that soon everything will be back to how it used to be.
