71% of respondents felt virtual education had a negative impact on their wellbeing
India’s shift to virtual education during the COVID-induced lockdown was well- implemented, according to the findings of a new report from Oxford University Press (OUP).
The report titled Education: The Journey Towards a Digital Revolution recorded insights from experts across seven countries, including India, the UK, Brazil, South Africa, Pakistan, Spain, and Turkey. Secondary research was also carried out, interviewing hundreds of teachers globally.
The primary aim of the report was to analyse how teachers, students, and parents adjusted to the new model of education and whether they would continue to adopt digital learning tools and methods in the future.
The report recorded that Indian respondents felt that the transition to online learning was done fairly well. India scored 3.3 out of a total of 5 points. However, 71% of Indian respondents felt that shifting to online learning has had a negative impact on their wellbeing.
Top 3 factors that led to a negative impact on digital learning:
India’s education sector faced several obstacles during the pandemic with the lack of financial resources, poor internet connectivity in rural areas and limited access to digital devices being the chief issues. Respondents held the government responsible for this lapse.
