Education after COVID 19

Education after COVID 19

COVID 19 Pandemic has a significant impact on numerous countries around the world right from developed countries, developing countries as well as underdeveloped countries. Major domains such as Education, Economy, Employment, International Relations, Infrastructure have faced a great blow. Some countries are even trying to come up with new future-oriented strategies and remedies so that they can tackle any kind of unforeseen situations.

One of the major concerns is how the education system is going to look like in the future stance. Before this pandemic struck and shattered the objectives of millions of lives around the globe, Majority of the world’s population had access to the education through the physical mediums as well as virtual medium, students used to prefer physical medium like to go to schools. Students used to get acquainted with the outside world and learn to adapt according to the societal needs, not only these factors but also the students were learning interpersonal skills and soft skills as well as getting first-hand experiences not only the above terms but also with a touch of practical exposure, if in case they missed out on any part of the lecture, moodle services launched by most of the universities and colleges give access to online lectures, practice problems, class notes to help them to prepare for the examination. The academic curriculum in the educational institution was well formulated for this year such as the dates for the commencement of the examinations, completion of the academic syllabus and admissions schedule, and so on. Some of them even planned and got acceptance from the institutions abroad.

A way forward, this pandemic has forced the education department to take prompt actions and measures, a previously evolved concept by the schools is that initiate homeschooling has been activated again. This has also pushed the educational institutions to come up with new academic structures, policies, and even leading to innovative teaching standards and digitalization. It has also encouraged outside the classroom concept where the students can access education on the fingertips. We can also develop short span time limit videos

containing educational content where the students won’t be bored or skip any lecture. The educational content on the videos should be precise and to the point. We can also adapt to the sub-branch of the educational videos online, mainly known as ‘self-paced’ wherein the student will able to study and access the content at his/her convenience and flexibility. This could also bridge the gap between public and private institutions and mutually work towards the common educational goal. As this situation restricts the connection with the outer world, the role of the educator or educational experts need to introduce and improvise on the ways where accessing education should just be a mouse’s click away. This would also initiate to take up programs/ courses from different countries. As the role of the educator, they can also step out of book knowledge and teach the students life skills.

To conclude, we are certainly heading towards an educational revolution. Moreover, COVID-19 is causing us to challenge deep-rooted notions of when, where, and how we deliver education, of the role of colleges and universities, the importance of lifelong learning, and the distinction we draw between traditional and non-traditional learners.
