Kid with digital tablet computer writing, doing homework at white desk. Online learning, remote educ

In every corner of the world, we can see different education patterns, but everyone is growing almost the same way with the change in the global situation. I come from a South Asian country with a totally different education system where competition is the priority due to growing population. When I came to Canada initially, it was very difficult for me to understand how my child would grow in his academic career. But gradually I came to know that self-learning and growth should be a priority. In Canadian education system we use more technology in education. My son has started learning Scratch at school and then it interested him a lot so with self-learning through various online platforms, he has been learning advanced coding. I would say every child should be given opportunities to prove their skills rather than being forced to serve their parents’ demands.
