Breaking the conventional background, classrooms are not just restricted to their physical boundaries. Students are allowed to interact with different scholars and scientists online and get motivated through second-hand experience. The government of UAE has also offered financial help for most of the public schools to incorporate online learning in their campus. Private schools have also increased their budget for getting equipped with some latest online learning tools.

Students are also getting exposed to a hybrid education where they find a perfect blend of offline and online education.
Scheduling Regular Online Classes
The online learning platform has proved to be a panacea during the pandemic. Keeping that situation in mind, schools across the UAE have started providing online classes at regular intervals. This makes them evaluate their preparedness for such a platform and look for corrective measures for any hindrance. However, the frequency of such classes may vary from school to school but efforts are been made at their best to evaluate this latest learning mode. Schools in Ras-AL-Khaimah are now offering online classes based on the availability of resources to them. Teachers also get to know their capabilities and efficiency in carrying out such programs and all possible issues are reported to the management.
Reframing the educational scenario
International schools in Ras-AL-Khaimah have noticed how prepared they were at the time of the pandemic and what all difficulties and challenges they faced during that time to offers distance learning through online modules. Most of the schools deeply analyzed their performance during that time. Some faced the problem of trained and experienced teachers while some others struggled with poor connectivity and technological scarcity. But the situation is completely different now. Each institution has managed to overcome all possible challenges and the management spent days and months to come up with a possible solution for their respective problems to implement online education. From teachers to learning resources, from teaching technologies to effective implementation, all such aspects were paid due importance and schools have made some best efforts to reorganize their complete educational policies accordingly. But the initiative was undertaken by RAK American Academy, the first American curriculum school in RAK.

The importance of education has to be understood by guardians also and they should offer proper learning tools to their children as per their level. Moreover, a combined motivation should be offered to children so that they also keep themselves ready for a change in their learning environment.
