The coronavirus pandemic has brought life to a standstill across the world, with nearly 178 countries reporting school closures. However parents remain confident that the children will be alright as their schools and teachers are working overtime so that their children can learn.
That isn’t the reality for many parents and school systems. If anything, this pandemic has brought into sharp focus how privileged some students are, and how others have been left behind. It has also shown us how important teachers are ― and how they can succeed, even during a crisis, with the right technology and support system.
While many school systems and teachers are trying to engage students, they face serious bottlenecks:
- stress due to economic uncertainty, concern for the safety of loved ones, and anxiety about the future;
- the daunting challenge of returning to schools where many students have dropped out or fallen behind
- increased pressure on teachers to ensure catch-up with little professional development support;
- little access to the right technologies or the skills to use them
