Staying at home Students look for tangible jobs, Living lessons are encouraged in this Epidemic
Covid-19 has now been a part of our lives for over a year. Although it has affected people worldwide in many ways, it has profoundly changed students’ lives, resulting in the deterioration of their physical and mental health.
During the epidemic, Indian schools and colleges have been operating almost exclusively, severely disrupting students’ social skills and overall development. Especially when it comes to elementary school children, the school and its immediate neighbours – their connections to the community and their social media – have been taken.
College students were losing their happy college life, playing a key role in preparing them for the future. These dramatic changes in education structure have created more anxiety, stress, anger, and loneliness for students, leaving them in a state of confusion and danger.
Students engage in recreational activities to help maintain daily balance and bring perspective to cope with the changing environment.
Anindita Das, a student at Ambedkar College, is pursuing her Masters in Sociology. He came up with the idea of daily exercise with his friends by contacting them at Zoom. “Getting the inspiration for daily exercise at home is tedious. So, my friends and I have set up a program to work together almost immediately.
We join at the same time and usually follow a regular exercise video or dance process from YouTube. “We feel a positive change in our body and mind. We feel a sense of accomplishment, which strengthens our confidence and self-esteem, too,” he said.
Online enrollment and open courses have also seen a dramatic increase since the outbreak began. Universities like Yale and Harvard offer various options for those who wish to study and improve their knowledge on several topics, like introductory courses, providing insight into online learning areas.
Google also offers free courses for people interested in Digital Marketing and Business Development. When you reach the end of the course, they give you a certificate.
Ananya Reddy, who pursues an MA in English at Fergusson College, said she learned about these courses through social media. “My online classes usually end at 1 p.m. presentation lessons at Yale University. It was inexpensive and was organized into 20 lectures, each lecture being 1 hour.
Many students also turn to virtual book clubs on social media. Jai Sharma, an 18-year-old awaiting the results of the 12th board exam, found a sense of proportion in his schedule by joining a small, visible book club where they discussed the various books they are currently reading. They chat once a week and talk about the experiences that keep them motivated. Sharma said being part of this real community “helps her to keep her reading habits and is also a great reminder of the fact that everyone is in this together”.
Currently, the country is preparing for the third line. To protect the health of all students, the chances of restarting offline classes – either at school or college – seem slim. It is important for students to keep motivated and keep their parents involved in activities that develop their cognitive and communication skills to have full human development. Staying at home, students look for tangible jobs, living lessons are encouraged in this epidemic.
