Covid-19 has made many changes to how we live our daily lives. The one area that has been changed almost completely is schooling. When it comes to schools and learning I don’t see any way that it will ever totally go back to normal, the idea of distance learning and blended learning for students has become somewhat of a norm in these times, which in some ways is a good thing. In the fall, at least for most universities, I feel that schools will try to limit face to face classes as much as possible, but, as a student whose plan was to be in a school placement in the fall, I am hoping there will be at least some in-person classes so that I can complete what I need to.
The goal that I see is that within the year everything will be back to normal and we can all go on how we used to, but if we have to think rationally that is a very slim outcome. As I had said earlier the most likely outcome is a sort of blended learning environment, where maybe students do not come to school every day and instead they only come three days a week and then do some other classes online like we are doing now. Five years is a long time, and a lot can change. I believe more blended and online learning is something to be expected in the future of schools.
