What is COVID-19?
COVID-19 is a coronavirus which has caused a worldwide pandemic and dominated the news for months. Young people have been massively affected by COVID-19. The closure of schools for long periods has led to interrupted learning, cancelled exams and a significant loss of daily structure. There is also the financial impact caused by this pandemic such as parents losing their jobs or being furloughed which has lead to a dramatic decrease in family income. Ultimately, people around the world are concerned about actually catching the COVID-19 virus which has lead to many physical and mental issues. How has the coronavirus affected people psychologically? Our COVID-20 page explains.
To ensure the continuity of education, schools have turned to technology with many teachers providing online lessons via radio, TV and the internet. Young people are totally at ease with new technology and having lessons via PC, tablet, or mobile phone is second nature to many. However, not every child has access to this type of equipment and many do not have internet access in their homes making online learning difficult. Therefore there is a high risk that many vulnerable children or those from poorer backgrounds have fallen behind their peers during the coronavirus pandemic and some may even have dropped out of school altogether.
All Resources has published a number of educational resource packs and lesson plans, as well as free resources for teachers, students and schools. We have also recently produced a range of resources and lesson plans covering specific COVID-19 coronavirus topics. You can view these below:
