COVID-19 And Education? What You Need To Know

covid 19 and education  what you need to know | Upload

How can we define the impact of the coronavirus on our lives? The word "change" may be the most exact, but we can also use the term "new normal", which became popular to understand the lifestyle during the virus. But if we must define exactly the effect of Covid-19 on the world, then the word "impact" is the ideal one.

COVID-19 And Education? What You Need To Know

This virus impacted all areas of humanity: the economy, health, and education. On this last point, we must talk about how the virus has created new ways of educating, of continuing to bring knowledge to children, youth, and adults. For that reason, in this article, we will explain through four facts how the coronavirus impacted the global education system.

  1. Contagion Risk

The most amazing part of this virus was seeing how the streets, offices, schools, and cities were now empty, like a desert. At the beginning of the spring, the World Health Organization issued different statements in which it explained which were the most dangerous areas for the spread of viruses. In this “blacklist” were health centers, public transportation, offices, and classrooms. Closed places where five or more people gather are considered risky.

This information from the WHO was what allowed many governments to apply quarantine and isolation measures. All activities in closed spaces are prohibited. That is why the schools closed and sent home their students, teachers, workers, and administrative personnel. The coronavirus temporarily closed 137,432 educational institutions (schools, colleges, and universities) and sent nearly 20 million public school students home, according to Guide 2 Research.

  1. Remote Education

Another shocking situation during the pandemic is distance learning. Closed schools were the main reason to start using this method on a large scale. In the United States, for example, the use of digital devices for distance learning was elementary. Nearly 90 percent of school-age students reported some method of remote education during isolation.

What were the most popular apps for online classes? The development of software for these platforms had significant growth in this era. Apps for remote education were the most popular tools for schools, universities, and courses. While companies used Zoom for video conferencing and business meetings, schools used Google Classroom. This platform grew to more than 100 million users during the quarantine since March, according to Bloomberg Quint.

  1. New Students

Covid-19 was a special time for new people to start studying. The main reason is the search for better jobs. One of the institutes that grew the most in this period were boot camps. These are relatively short but intensive courses, and offer face-to-face and remote classes. However, with the pandemic, remote classes became the only option.

Quarantine and isolation increased people's interest in obtaining professional training. Bootcamps offer courses in tech areas, such as software engineering, coding, app development, web design, and cybersecurity, among others. All of these careers were in very high demand during the pandemic, as tech companies need staff to offer more and better services to people at home. In 2019, more than 23,000 students graduated from these courses.

  1. Collaborative Education

During the pandemic, remote learning has changed the idea of ​​traditional education. Even though common classes use methods applied for many years, with Covid-19 the concept of collaborative education has allowed a better development in students. This method of education allows students and teachers to exchange ideas during lessons, which creates more confidence and mental ability.

Perhaps remote education has many flaws. A large percentage of people say that this method is not effective for education or work. Both distance education and hybrid methods (a combination of face-to-face lessons and distance classes) can be good alternatives for the future, especially to bring quality learning to areas where it is difficult to build a school.

Conclusion:

The impact of coronavirus in the world will remain present for a long time. The education industry needs better ideas to solve human needs. To meet these objectives, both governments and companies need to create efficient and useful alternatives to build better sources of knowledge for all.
