Today we’re analysing the impact of pandemic on education and education system. There are various ways in which covid-19 has impacted the education system of the world in general and India in particular.
Unprecedented rise of e-learning
The biggest impact the pandemic has had on the education system is a complete paradigm shift from offline learning to online and e-learning. Although e-learning was a popular concept in the West, but India hadn’t capitalized on that before the pandemic. However, the pandemic has forced this change upon the Indian education system.
Lower access for lower economic strata
The major downside of online learning is lack of access to learning materials for the underprivileged sections of society. The instruments of online educations, such as laptops, tablets and smartphones are quite expensive, and data consumption adds to the expenses. Moreover, municipal schools don’t have the resources to promote online learning, and hence education of the lower economic strata comes to a standstill.
