Crown Princess Mette-Marit had a video conference with teachers who talked about the new school life with digital teaching.
The Crown Prince couple, like other parents, have recently been trying themselves as teachers at home.
– “There are probably many parents at home who are very grateful for their efforts during these weeks of homeschooling. Many have probably received even more respect for your profession, and how important you are to the children, parents and the whole community,” said the Crown Princess during the video conference with teachers Siri Skjæveland Lode in Jæren, Monica Andreassen in Tromsø and Simen Spurkland in Bærum on Monday.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit praised the efforts of the country’s teachers.
“We are so impressed with how teachers around the country have handled a demanding and urgent change,” she said.
While many students thrive on the new, digital learning style, more are missing out on school and social contact, teachers said during the meeting.
Siri Skjæveland Lode is a member of the central board of the Education Association and says that they have received messages from teachers who are concerned about not having daily contact in the classroom.
They are now happy that schools are gradually re-opening.
On Monday, students in grades 1st – 4th, begin again at school.
