The 2019-2020 school year is nearly over and many students feel relieved to be through with distance learning...for now at least.
It seems likely that online learning will be part of the near future as well. Some colleges are already gearing up for fall semester with announcements that their classes will be conducted online. Many K-12 school districts are preparing teachers for online teaching into at least the fall.
Some people are already dubbing the school kids of today the Covid Generation. If this unfortunate nickname sticks, the memory of daily Zoom and Google Meet sessions to get their lessons may be a lasting one.
Kids, teachers and parents should be proud of their quick adaptions to online learning. But many would also acknowledge that there now are gaps in kids' educations because the transition to online formats was too hasty to be ideal.
