Education in the time of COVID 19. How Edusha Eduversity Can help you?

Let us first understand what Covid 19 is

 The World Health Organization (WHO) is working closely with global experts, governments and partners to rapidly expand scientific knowledge on this new virus, to track the spread and virulence of the virus, and to supply advice to countries and individuals on measures to guard the health and stop the spread of this outbreak.Edusha Eduversity being an online platform for guidance and helping can help and guide you accordingly.

 Coronaviruses (CoV) are an outsized family of viruses. That cause illness starting from the cold to more severe diseases.  

 Crucial Ways to Slow the Spread

    • Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you can.
    • Wear a mask that covers your nose and mouth to help protect yourself and others.
    • Stay 6 feet apart from others.
    • Avoid crowds and poorly ventilated indoor spaces.
    • Wash your hands often with soap and water. Use alcohol-based sanitizers if soap and water are not available.

 EDUCATION SYSTEM IN PANDEMIC?WHAT IS NEXT COME TO EDUSHA EDUVERSITY

 In early 2020, most countries in the world chose partially or fully close schools to contain the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). It resulted in an unprecedented number of scholars unable to attend school face to face – at the height of faculty closures in late March 2020, over 1.6 billion students were affected worldwide. More than half a year later, in mid-November 2020, as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in many parts of the world, over 670 million students reside in countries implementing school closure policies, 150 million students are in countries where schools are partially closed. School closures have had severe consequences on student learning opportunities as well as their social-emotional and cognitive development. The estimates of learning losses related to school closures suggest that affected students can lose nearly $10 trillion in lifetime earnings, adding to country considerations for reopening schools.

 While countries are racing to understand and limit the spread of the new coronavirus, and as headlines focus on those efforts, a side effect has overlooked: Education.

Approx. 777 million children and students are out of the schools and universities in 100 countries.

 With 85 governments closing schools nationwide and 15 others imposing locals school closures, according to UNESCO. A large majority of these – 670 million – are between preschool age and 18 years old. Those numbers are only likely to rise within the near future.

 It is a staggering number, and with many other countries and municipalities likely to follow suit, there will be a profound impact on families, communities, and learning everywhere.  

While inter distance and remote learning programs are run, the situation had arisen in many locations, and vulnerable children are at the worst disadvantage.

  Relevant impact due to COVID :

  • Emergency of the education system

 It has become a basic emergency for the education system all across the world. If schools are closed due to a public health emergency, administrators should think that teaching and learning do not have to grind to a halt. They can continue through programs using innovative approaches.

 There are many samples of radio, television, cellphone, and internet-based learning options there. UNESCO recently published a list of platforms and programs for online learning that may be useful to schools. If distance learning is the future, few precautions should be taken to the language of instruction, content progression, and relevance for college students.

 Continuing to pay teachers and staff during school closures is also necessary.

  • Reopening of schools and colleges

 School and colleges systems should put a transparent plan for reopening schools as quickly and responsibly as possible. It will include preparing the physical schools and colleges for reopening, providing teachers with accurate information and training on the general public health crisis.

 Using them as a chance to monitor and trace any emergency, providing any additional physical or mental health support that students may need, especially in high-incident areas.

It is not just schools or undergraduate studies,but postgraduates studies and colleges such as top MBA colleges and top engineering programs should have restructuring.

  • MAINTAINING A SAFE SCHOOL AND HEALTHY COMMUNITY

  Our focus should be on how to overcome the distance that has created in the past two years. Still, the study is going online, faculty always tries to put their best efforts to make doubt of students clear. The need of building a healthy community and safe school life had become important.

We are mindful that COVID-19 has brought many uncertainties, including budget cuts that have resulted in the loss of nearly 500,000 public education jobs in April of this year alone. 

A few initiatives could be taken: 

  • Support paid time to connect with families.

 While budget cuts may make paying overtime infeasible, districts should work to carve out paid time for teachers to call, text, Zoom and (when necessary) meet with families to check in. The most important goal is to keep communication with families open and for educators to understand the realities families are facing.

  • Have dedicated staff.

Family engagement is everyone’s responsibility. When possible, hire and support people that can connect across racial, cultural, and linguistic divides, like bilingual individuals with roots in local communities.

  • Construct family leadership and decision-making roles.

 We are not going to figure out COVID-19-era education without the knowledge and expertise of the families most impacted. Edusha Eduversity is there to guide on all necessary for points and help in reaching your goals.

  • Look for new spaces to engage families.

With schools closed, this is a perfect time to get away from the school building and into community spaces for parent-teacher meetings or even “classroom” instruction, while still addressing the reality of the pandemic. Many families do not feel ready to take on the added teaching responsibilities they have been given. Offer materials, workshops, or one-on-one support to families so they can build confidence in this new role.

  • Work with community partners.

 Addressing the racial and social inequities heightened by the pandemic requires working closely with area people organizations, agencies, businesses, and community leaders—some of whom are going to be relations in the school.

  • Offer professional development.

 Teachers, staff and administrators need more training and should know the way to create authentic, equitable relationships with multilingual families of all backgrounds.

CONCLUSION

These commitments will create the foundation we need for families and educators to confront the new challenges of distance learning in a time of the pandemic. We as a nation must make education a priority and support the educational success of our children by investing in these essential commitments. When this particular crisis has passed, we cannot return to normal. The inequities magnified by COVID-19 will persist and must be addressed.
