Given the ongoing global health crisis, it is best for everyone to stay at home if they can. Who can work remotely should work remotely, who doesn’t have to leave the house shouldn’t leave the house. Schools everywhere, from primary education to high schools to universities are closed and likely won’t be open for the rest of the 2019/2020 academic year.
Students and teachers alike are now in an unenviable position of needing to quickly adjust to an entirely new way of learning. Remote learning isn’t impossible and plenty of students go through it regularly, but it is outside of the norm. Most are used to classrooms, meeting their friends in the hallways, grabbing lunch at the school cafeteria. They’re used to a whiteboard and textbooks and teachers urging the class to be quiet.
Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic in full swing, education has been relocated to online classes and homework assignments shared through email and social networks.
