[b]What has been the impact of COVID-19 on global education?[/b]
The level of educational disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic is greater than anything in modern history. To examine the ipact, a study was done by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) and UNESCO, together with the European Commission.
The report noted that education systems around the world have varied in their responses to the crisis.
According to UNESCO, more than 90% of all learners were affected by school closures caused by COVID-19 at the peak of the disruption. It also revealed a worrying lack in first-hand, internationally comparable information from schools, collected in a systematic and scientific manner. The organization says this is needed for evaluating the extent to which teaching and learning have been challenged, continued, and adjusted as a result of the current crisis.
The purpose of the survey is to collect data from governments, teachers, and students on how they will prepare for long-distance learning. The study will target all different educational levels and will focus on topics around the preparedness for distance learning, available IT and educational resources, perceptions on the success of strategies, student engagement, as well as around inequalities in educational learning opportunities during the disruptions.
