Luis Santos

Abstract

The increasing use of technologically-assisted teaching and learning approaches and tools has been raised in the current school system. However, most of the practice-based and vocational-based courses have still relied on face-to-face instruction. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a large number of courses and programmes have been moved to the online platform for teaching. In this study, the researcher interviewed 12 participants who have sent to their children to one of the distance learning based martial arts education courses in South Korea. Based on the lens of the Social Cognitive Career Theory, this study sought to understand the motivation and reasons why do parents want to send their children to one of the distance learning based martial arts school online? The finding of this study indicated that the achievements of education and career goals always drove the motivation and reasons of these groups of parents, regardless of the outcomes of the programmes and the willingness of their children. The results of this study provided a blueprint for government leaders, policymakers, school leaders, parents, students, and researchers to understand the current social problem, such technologically-assisted tools.
