T4 Education conducted its survey to analyse the impact of COVID-19 on education
According to a major global study, Indian teachers have shown to be quite positive about their career post-COVID-19 as they have upgraded their skills and continued their career in teaching having shown resilience. The global study was conducted on the use of technology to improve teaching and learning. The study was conducted by T4 Education, a worldwide organisation that offers tools and initiatives for teachers for the improvement of education.
The survey covered 20, 679 teachers of around 165 countries. The survey report was published in London this week and it documents how COVID-induced restrictions impacted the quality of education.
According to the findings, “Overall, Indian teachers appear positive about their career post-pandemic, which is a positive story for the future of education. Teachers have upskilled, shown resilience and are in the main keen to continue in their teaching.”
As per the report, about 90% of the teachers believe that their experience has made them better teachers after the pandemic and 59% are more enthusiastic than before about teaching. While only 16% showed less enthusiasm.
According to many Indian teachers, post-COVID-19 schools should bring in solutions to help learners to understand better and develop independent strategies for learning. Also introducing play in the learning method can help in reducing stress.
Vikas Pota, founder of T4 Education, has said that for teachers worldwide, the last 18 months have been an incredible journey. He also said that the report is a unique documentation of how globally teachers have responded to the worldwide education crisis heroically.
The report has also found that in India and other countries the access to the internet and technology were the major factors behind the loss of learning during the worldwide pandemic.
