The Coronavirus has changed all our lives drastically. It has affected the physical and mental health of adults as well as children. Also, Covid-19 has affected the education of children of all ages in many ways. 

The pre-schoolers and primary school children's basic foundation of education came to a stop. They were in isolation for months and some countries for years. The most vital years of their education were disrupted and discontinued. Comparing the statistics of a child before and after the Covid-19 clearly shows a steep decline in their performance, attention span, writing, and communication skills.  

Since most countries have resumed education back to normal, all burden is on the teachers now.

Some of the common problems faced by the children are mentioned below; 

  • the child was unable to read a paragraph fluently
  • the child was unable to follow simple instructions like writing down the day and date, the topic's name, questions etc.
  • the child was unable to write correctly
  • the child would easily get distracted.

All children have been affected badly in terms of education during this tough time on us. We all need to stay strong and support the child and the teacher. It will take time, but things will get back to normal soon.

I would say yes and no at the same time. You may be able to provide quality education that is specific to your child. For example you would be able to understand the manner in which he memorizes things or how he encodes information. Having done that, the quality of education would obviously be far more improved than it would be at school in a classroom of 38 children, all of whom are being taught in the same manner. At the same time, school environment provides a medium for children to enhance their social skills, learn more about the world, and develop and identity meawhile keeping their own integrity intact in a group setting. You wouldn't be able to provide them with the same social experience at home. For this reason, I would say that it is better to to homeschool a child but with an alternative environment that the school would have usually provided.

 In my personal opinion, I like everything education has taken a steep turn towards a decline during the time of covid-19. I don't have children of my own but I have seen my nephews and nieces become addicted to technology thanks to covid. They couldn't get out of the house and the had to attend all the classes online which was a pretty good excuse for them to stay close to their tablets or computers and whenever my sister told them to put it down, they would tell her that homework is still pending and it needs to be completed on the computer. So, all in all I think it to creativity from children and put them in the shoes of comfort, more than they should have been. Now everything is only a Google away so obviously brainstorming is a far fetched concept.

Learn and increase knowledge using the internet. In my opinion it is more than adequate and effective, because parents will still be able to pay attention to the child while doing activities at home.

Maybe it's just my opinion, because I feel that way in my country. But in my opinion "learning online" is very different from learning in person on the spot (school or college).

This really a good question, btw this is my answer, since the pandemic comes to hit my entire space on my country, government made quick announcement about the school schedule, then they made new rule for any student to just learn from home (home school) but what my son did everyday (since home school) already change everything, my son being so active boy, eating well, and had so much time on home (ofcourse), and thats made my son growth (height of body) more healthy

Covid-19 has changed the dynamics of education significantly. it brought with it both negative and positive attitude during the middle of the pandemic the children wer not able to go to school, could not associate freely with the other children but it had also thought them a lot of hygiene while at home.

There is an interesting article about this. 

 Perhaps the drop in the level of knowledge coincided with the beginning of the epidemic, as the epidemic itself became possible due to the shortcomings of the forecast in the scientific sphere. 

The lack of analysis and forecasting causes even greater social costs.

Since the announcement of the first case of COVID-19 in Indonesia in March 2020, or in the last 2 years, the number of positive cases of Corona in Indonesia has continued to increase every day until now. Terms such as social distancing (social restrictions) or PPKM (Enforcement of Restrictions on Community Activities) applied by the government initially sounded foreign but are now increasingly familiar. All activities involving large crowds have been temporarily suspended to minimize the potential for the virus to spread. This also affected the education sector, where learning activities in schools were also temporarily suspended. The learning model has changed significantly due to the Covid-19 pandemic. The learning process before the pandemic, students and teachers could learn face-to-face, while now the face-to-face process is limited or even stopped. During this pandemic, the government is actively involved in solving these problems, especially in the field of education. Currently, the government is making an innovation in the field of education to prevent the spread of COVID-19, namely by encouraging every school to carry out the Distance Learning Process (PJJ). Where during this pandemic, students can still be productive in getting education. This will affect learning activities, all subjects must be delivered to students using technology. This is where the important role of parents, teachers and students synergize to optimize learning through the use of technology. In times of a pandemic like this, children must still get a proper education, therefore the development of technology is one of the determining factors in solving educational problems. Educational technology can provide easy information and delivery of material so that learning activities do not become an obstacle, especially during distance learning, where children can still be productive even though they are studying from home.
