The JakWifi program that aims to facilitate online learning and support the provision of government services has received a positive response from education observers.
One of education observers Darmaningtyas said that it was very helpful for the community, especially students who are undergoing the Distance Learning (PJJ) process.
"I really appreciate this step and it is a good and smart move to support the students in Jakarta. I think other local governments can copy it," she expressed, Friday (9/4).
She suggested that JakWIFI program socialization to the wider community should be intensified thus it could be utilized as well as possible.
"We can involve local urban villages and principals to promote this program. If the internet has a password, the community must know," she said.
She hoped that it could help the teaching and learning process amid the pandemic and could lighten the parents' burden who have difficulty buying internet quotas for their children's learning needs.
"After the pandemic has passed, the internet will still be important to support learning in schools," she stressed.
Another education observer Arief Rachman uttered that it was very good way considering internet is also a major necessity during the pandemic," he exclaimed.
He went on to say that education should be able to create a pleasant atmosphere thus the five human potentials can be developed namely spiritual, emotional, intellectual, social and physical.
"Our hope in the future is education must be truly guaranteed. In the current limited conditions, the teaching and learning process must continue. One of the ways to do this is by providing free internet facilities," he hoped.
