Covid-19 taught us and changed us in so many ways. Life was so fascinating, entertaining and lively before CORONA. But, suddenly a virus named Covid-19 CORONA came to our lives and the complete view and dimensions of our lives has changed. Many new words added to our daily life dictionary like lockdown; sanitizations, quarantine, social distancing etc. and new style of working i.e., work from home too.
Many things have transformed from Offline to Online. Online classes, online social meetings, even attending weddings wedding on Facebook live has become the most usual practice. Everyone from Kindergarten kids to college students are under practicing practice of online learning and teaching. Many teachers have started changing from traditional to purely technical ways of teaching. There are Kindergarten kids and lower grades can be avoided from availing online education where as higher grade students can be provoked to use technology in more good and proper ways.
Little children from preschools and lower primary can be engaged in various at home, short duration online activities whereas higher grade students must be encouraged to use technology in more innovative ways.
The social scenario is not yet normal and there will be great challenges in front of all educational institutions. Social Distancing is a bit disappointing to think hear because, children love outdoor and so many sports events, cruises, festivals and other gatherings are being cancelled due to new norms. These cancellations help us to stop or slow down the spread of disease, allowing the health care system to more readily care for patients to overcome the situation.
Cancelling events that are likely to draw crowds is an example of social and physical distancing. Social distancing is deliberately increasing the physical space between people to avoid spreading illness. Staying at least six feet away from each other is the only solution.
World Health Organisation (WHO) has given us directives that, this virus will be with us for a long time, it is a hint for us to move on with our lives simultaneously with CORONA. Time will not wait for us so we need to figure out an alternative for working and continue with the learning, nurturing children and continue with academics domain. But there are so many things which we need to check before we start with the classroom teaching.
