With the continued uncertainty of the spike in COVID-19 cases, and the severance from normalcy, somehow the productive potential of the students of an entire generation has plunged. This has led us to many problems. The lockdown and shutdown across the country led to the closure of the schools, colleges, and universities which led to the adoption of the digital way of teaching and learning. Both the teacher and the students have adopted online classes and online exams as the modern way of digital learning. However, students from the village areas faced a lot of problems in attending the online classes. From the lack of smartphones to the unavailability of the network, a lot of such problems are still faced by the village students. So providing them with an adequate amount of resource for their education is something that the government and the policymakers should look after and solve them as soon as possible.
The resurgence in COVID-19 cases led to public outrage by students and their parents on the opening of schools, which has put a very harsh impact on the education sector. Class X and XII board exams were either canceled or postponed. This was followed by a backlash by the parents and the students who were protesting the decision.
The traditional method of teaching and learning is now been out-dated. So it is high time that the educators and policymakers, recalibrate the education system, and don’t miss the opportunity to reimagine and think about more ways of modernising learning methods, without time, because there is no certainty that the situation will be normal by March 2022.
