St. Magdalene of Canossa
The impact of Covid – 19 is observed in every sector around the world. The education sectors of India as well as the world are badly affected by this. It has enforced the world wide lockdowns creating very bad effect on students’ life.
Around 32 crore learners stopped to move to school/colleges and all educational activities halted in India. The outbreak of Covid -19 has taught us that challenge is inevitable. It has worked as a catalyst for the educational institutions to grow and opt for platforms with technologies, which have not been used before. The education sector has been fighting to survive the crisis with different approach and digitizing the challenges to wash away the threat of the pandemic. The central and state governments provide seamless education in the country.
The plan to return students to physical classroom has suffered a major set back. The second wave covid-19 cases that are worse then the peak in 2020 with all these e-learning has been on the rise during the pandemic and is being heralded as the future of education. Though online pedagogy does a great job of supplementing offline education, it does not serve the real purpose of offline classes. The digital medium can’t replicate the interpersonal interactions that the schools facilitate by bringing together young children from different background and cultures. Interactions with peer group in the class help the students to develop their social skills, it is essential to their holistic growth and development. Education provides knowledge, training and skills as well as inculcates new thoughts, attitudes, and relationships among the young.
At this juncture it is very necessary for the government, personal and private agencies to work together to improve the accessibility to digital learning solutions for less privileged students to make learning a reality.
