Covid V/S Education

The threat of corona virus has significantly affected our education system. We live in a part of the world where emergencies are nothing new, but now we have become so accustomed to these situations that even in these situations we somehow find a solution to our problems. However, this time the situation is somewhat different, because these conditions have become a test for our education system and to see how our education system copes with it.
Since children cannot reach the classroom, schools will have to find alternative ways to educate children so that the educational process and the quality of knowledge are not affected.
The current situation has made us realize that we now have to raise our standards in line with the requirements of technology. Schools that could not get on the digital boat are lagging behind today because they are having a hard time finding alternative ways to continue their children’s education.
Currently, various methods are being used, from Google Classroom to WhatsApp and Facebook groups. To me, these methods are proving to be useful and innovative. Anyway, you may have heard the saying that necessity is the mother of invention.
Most schools have avoided the inclusion of digital learning tools in their education due to the large investment of time and money and the high cost involved, but today they are struggling to get on the boat of all technology.
Tough conditions require drastic measures. Rapidly new changes in the present time may actually force us to learn a new lesson and perhaps admit that the model confined to the classroom with the presence of teachers is not the only and necessary means for teaching.
In this digital age, distance is no longer as big a problem as it used to be, now on most occasions face-to-face and digital media are used to communicate with each other, and the same is true of reading and learning.
While the corona virus has endangered the entire world, it has also challenged our ability to provide children with a better education in this difficult time that meets the expectations of their parents. While we may not have the high-quality technology, strength, capability and effectiveness as developed economies, we do have the tools to read and learn, as well as the commitment.
Some schools have made great efforts to help students and parents with limited understanding of digital media. Students and their parents who do not know how to use Google Classroom or Moodle are provided with an alternative platform like Close Facebook Groups.
The learning process and the field of education require, as with any other profession, to consider and improve the quality of skills over time. The current school closures are a good opportunity for teachers to think about how they can provide better education to their students by adopting alternative methods. Then it is a good time to give the right to education to the students and the teachers just supervise it and take control of it.
A multi-pronged strategy is necessary to manage the crisis and build a resilient education system in the long term.
One, immediate measures are essential to ensure continuity of learning in government schools and universities. Open-source digital learning solutions and Learning Management Software should be adopted so teachers can conduct teaching online.
Two, inclusive learning solutions, especially for the most vulnerable and marginalized, need to be developed. This can change the schooling system and increase the effectiveness of learning and teaching, giving students and teachers multiple options to choose from. Many aspirational districts have initiated innovative, mobile-based learning models for effective delivery of education, which can be adopted by others.
Three, strategies are required to prepare the higher education sector for the evolving demand supply trends across the globe—particularly those related to the global mobility of students and faculty and improving the quality of and demand for higher studies . Further, immediate measures are required to mitigate the effects of the pandemic on job offers, internship programs, and research projects.
Four, it is also important to reconsider the current delivery and pedagogical methods in school and higher education by seamlessly integrating classroom learning with e-learning modes to build a unified learning system.
By learning on digital media and learning new ways of doing things, students can feel more advanced. Since students will be sitting with their books along with online instruction and they will not be being instructed in the traditional way in the classroom at every stage of the academic process, some students will be encouraged to read naturally.
In this age of innovation and discovery, turbulent times add to frustration. Parents complain that they are bearing the additional burden of their child’s education while also having to do their part in the absence of teachers. Throughout this phase, schools have to prepare curriculum on an emergency basis and the thought and testing phase required in curriculum development is not being implemented even if they want to.
Due to the outbreak of the corona virus, we do not have time to test or experiment with alternative methods, which is why today there are fights between parents and staff on digital media. In these times of crisis, we have proved that we are impatient and there is no such thing as flexibility.
When we are faced with adversity or when there is an opportunity to find a way out, we calm down and acknowledge the new reality, we are overwhelmed by our own incompetence, then we first point fingers at each other, fight. They quarrel and shout...
Although we are sorry to be lagging behind in the field of technology, we hope that with this we will be able to overcome this challenge by using our capabilities.
