What happens after sitting for long hours – Ciscasquapro

Have you ever experienced the side effects of sitting for a long time? The novel coronavirus has forced most of us to work from home. Those who are taking courses are too forced to do it online.

Teachers teaching online are forced to sit for a long time contrary to what they are used to. Student may change the sitting position in a normal class but for online classes, same position is maintained.

Sitting for long hours at the same position has come with some problems.

There is an increase of backache to the victims. Some have experienced swelling of feet. Others feel a lot of fatigue from sitting at the same position for long. Sitting glued to the screen causes headaches and eye problems.

Then, what should we do to prevent these problems? Don’t mind, there is a way out.

  • Give yourself some short breaks.
  • Change the sitting position after sometimes.
  • Do some exercises as you are seated such as moving of the legs, hands and shoulders.
  • Move the eyes away from the screen for some time. Focus at a distance before you come back to the screen.
  • Exercise before you start your day and if possible after you are done with the busy day.

Next time you need to sit for long, take note of the above.

Do you have other experience you can add to the list? Feel free to put it done as a comment below.

Teachers and Digital learning – Ciscasquapro

The Coronavirus pandemic has brought a lot of changes in our daily lives. More so to education sector where most of learning is being done through online classes. The teachers are therefore supposed to be well equipped with technology to be able to facilitate the lessons.

As I stated in my previous post on challenges of digital learning, teaching online has been difficult to some of the teachers who are not conversant with the use of computers. Remember this was not part of their training and so it calls for the teachers’ effort to equip themselves with the skills. This has brought some hiccups in online classes.

So it is good for those teachers to put some effort and embrace the change by enrolling to computer classes too as this will help them to understand what they need to administer to the learners.

They should not shy off from getting some insights from the young generation which may be well conversant in the area.

By this doing, our children will have competent teachers who are able to deliver the content in every situation.

Do you have any opinion on the above? Let’s share it as you leave your comment.
