In the last two weeks, due to the Corona pandemic, I have had digital classes. A few days before classes started, we received our timetable and other important information by e‑mail.
The first day of classes started with a team meeting with our class teacher. Here we mainly discussed organizational matters, such as how the lessons will be held in the next two weeks, which teacher will use which platform to provide the teaching materials. After we discussed everything, we started with the lessons. In AWP we learned how to use SQL Joins – the connection of several tables – in the database language, whereas in Networked Systems we dealt with the topic of subnetting, which we had already started in the previous teaching block.
The design of the digital lessons differed from teacher to teacher, some of them gave us tasks to work on ourselves. These tasks were then discussed in the next lesson. These tasks included distribution policy tasks in BWP or project management tasks in ITP. In AWP we solved tasks on the above mentioned SQL topic directly in class. Each teacher had a different solution on how to make the lessons interesting. Since we had very few lessons (compared to our normal schedule), I spent the free time working on the teachers’ tasks and doing tasks for my TecAlliance team.
I found the two weeks of digital lessons very enjoyable because I could use the time better. Nevertheless, I am looking forward to going back to the vocational school in Würzburg.
