【信報:升學專家有話兒】促學生「熄機」 學校絞盡腦汁

身為老牌留學生,回想昔日為慳長途電話費,每周只能一次用摩打嘴將一周大事快速向家人匯報,簡直淒涼過狄更斯筆下人物。現在不得不對科技發出讚嘆:今日一個智能電話,令留學生與家人朋友即時聯繫便捷得多,跟我們那個年代相比,正是古語所云的「同人唔同命」。

 

改善身心質素

不過,Deloitte近日報告指出,英國人「滑機」成癮。學生之間的這個現象甚至引起英國國會關注,教育部長Timpson便提出了一些頗引人側目的建議,例如提倡將佛教正念(Mindfulness)的冥想技巧,列入學校每日課程中,使學生可以在線上世界斷線,達至心智與情緒平衡之境界。

很多英國寄宿學校為顧及學生的心理健康,亦紛紛採取各種方法讓學生從手機世界走出來。Haberdashers’ Aske’s Boys’ School便有老師向低年級同學提供瑜伽課程來改善身心質素,而且給予學生「熄機」的機會。

至於另一間Tonbridge School,校方會教導所有十年級學生如何透過一些專注活動,例如步行來學習活在當下,建立內在的平和。 

Abbotsholme設有自己的牧場,同學要輪流參與農場工作。透過有規律的體力勞動及跟動物接觸,從網絡世界回到現實,令心境清新明澄。

根據2015 Headmasters’ and Headteachers’ Conference報告,九成四學校認為學生不正確使用社交媒體是個問題,六成五甚至問題嚴重。

事實上,私校跟公立學校都面對這同一挑戰,分別是獨立學校卻較有資源,並肯以創新手法去改善狀況。

所以,我覺得今日留英學生真的好幸福,他們有火技可以與家人保持親密接觸,難得英國的寄宿學校亦願意為他們身心健康搞搞新意思,這些學校對同學心靈精神關愛,值得我們鼓掌。
