Conference of the Inter-American Confederation of Catholic Education
The coronavirus is instantly changing the way education is delivered, as school and home now become the same place after the necessary regulations were put in place. According to UNESCO, more than 861.7 million children and young people in 119 countries have been affected by having to face the global pandemic that has shaken us this year. Millions of families in America have had to join the 1.7 million children who are enrolled in homeschooling.
In the short term, the first question to consider is the effect that replacing face-to-face classes with online and distance training will have on student learning. The World Economic Forum proposes that this pandemic becomes an opportunity to remind us of the skills that our students need just in crises like these, thus, informed decision-making, creative problem solving, the use of technology and, above all, , adaptability. To ensure those skills remain a priority for all learners, resilience must also be embedded in our education systems.
In this webinar there will be a contextualization of the situation and different solutions from the technological side that facilitate the learning process in this new reality of Distance Education.
