Everyone in the world feels the effects of COVID-19. It has reshaped the economy, workforce, and educational system all around the world. How will these changes impact our children?
According to an April EdWeek Research Center survey, “Nearly 4 of 5 teachers think their students’ ability to focus has gotten worse with school-related tasks during the shutdown.”
Until the start of social isolation, schools were a place where children could grow and develop amongst their peers, but now classes are conducted through online learning. Teachers were once the only supervisors of the classroom, but now parents are having to step in to fill this role. Everyone’s safety is the main priority, however, these changes along with additional screen time have negatively affected many students’ abilities to focus on school-related activities.
