So china’s education authorities are about to take some burden off parents, a proposal posted last week by the Department of Education in China’s eastern province of Zhejiang shows that teachers would be banned from using wechat,QQ or any other mobile app to assign homework or ask parents to grade students’ assignments.
As mobile internet booms in China, phones have become an extension of daily activities, including school practices. Instead of announcing homework in class or handing out notices to students in person, teachers are now dumping assignments into WeChat groups designed to interact with parents. Many teachers are keen to exercise their power through these digital channels, asking parents to help students with problem sets and even grade their homework( what the heck..).
“Different schools treat technology differently and I’m not opposed to the use of it. It’s helpful, for example, to use a digital device to learn English because much of the process involves audios and videos,” the parent said. “I think sometimes media are painting teachers and schools in such a negative light just to get attention.”
