Safe way to teach young children during Covid-19


Waqas Siddiqui
The spread of the coronavirus has severely affected the livelihoods of people around the world, especially young children, who have been severely affected by the closure of educational institutions. Many educational institutions continued to teach through Zoom. Although the experiment was somewhat successful for large groups, it did not work for young children. Young children need attention on an individual level. For them, not only the completion of the syllabus but also the children’s interaction with their peers and social relations are important for the learning process. Children need to practice pencil writing on paper. To overcome this problem, the concept of micro-school has been introduced in many countries of the world, including the United States, which has become very popular in a short time. Classes can also be taken in the open in good weather, which further reduces the risk of contracting the coronavirus. For working parents who can’t monitor their children in online classes, this learning pod is a blessing in disguise. To reap the benefits of this method, some rules and regulations need to be formulated. For example 1- The number of children should be kept low 2 – People in the pod should be especially careful when interacting with other people. 3 – Use a mask when interacting with other people 4 – Adequate social distance should be maintained in all cases 5- All the members of the pod should honestly inform each other about the health and social activities of their family so that if one of them is infected with corona, the other can be kept safe. While many new activities have emerged during this global epidemic, the need and importance of learning pods have also increased. Educational institutions have started reopening in phases under SOPs. Only time will tell to what extent they are implemented and to what extent educational activities can be carried forward. Because of all this, parents will surely continue to adopt new creative approaches because of the educational and training needs of their children.
