What are the effects of pandemic on education?

“POSITIVE RESULTS REVEALED”

Stating that COVID-19 pandemic brought about a global transformation in terms of educational practices, Asst. Prof. Dr. Derya Kavgaoğlu said: “The transformation required the transfer of school-based established educational processes to the completely digital platform. The countries of the world produced their own formulas quickly in order to continue education and minimize losses. Turkey could be considered among the countries which produced a strong education policy in a very short time and provided healthy and problem-free transition from school based education to the digital education. The data in the report titled 'Education in the COVID-19 Outbreak 2020' published by the Organization for Economic Development and Cooperation (OECD) also supports this evaluation. With the same research report, OECD also found that the crisis produced an unexpected series of positive results for education and training.”
 
Kavgaoğlu spoke as follows:
 
“Among these positive results, a very valuable data in practical terms is the increasing tendency of students to take their own learning responsibilities and the pedagogical freedoms of teachers. That means that the student who experiences distance education gains learning autonomy, and the teacher who experiences distance education starts to produce original teaching design.”

“STUDENTS DISCOVER INDEPENDENT RESEARCH”

Noting that the student who had the opportunity to learn at her/his own pace with distance education is more motivated when s/he experiences success, Asst. Prof. Dr. Derya Kavgaoğlu from Istanbul Gelisim University said: “The student discovers independent research. Therefore, they actually ponder about subjective learning strategies they never thought before.”

“THE MOST SUCCESSFUL STUDENTS ARE THOSE WHO PAY ATTENTION TO LEARNING STRATEGIES”

Kavgaoğlu stating that “Learning strategies are learning ways that enable the student to learn easily and permanently” and added: “These strategies make the student a conscious learner and facilitate learning with pleasure. “To repeat by memorizing, writing, drawing, vocalizing to obtain a set of information; expanding previous information or adding new information using mental images, meaningful codes abbreviations; classify, tabulate, and schematize information; questioning, controlling, comparing, evaluating oneself to determine if they have learned enough and correctly; to recognize and eliminate barriers that will prevent their own learning and to create optimum learning conditions for him”. These are learning strategies and are rarely used among students accustomed to traditional education. The most successful students of the class are the students who realize these learning strategies and have gained application autonomy.”

“IT BECAME A SAVIOR FOR A LOT OF TRAINERS”

Kavgaoğlu also evaluated the distance education process experienced with the epidemic in terms of teacher: “In educational activities that are stuck in the classroom and entered into routine, we see that the free movement ability of the teacher is limited as much as the student. The teacher, who cannot move away from traditional methods and does not use innovative teaching strategies in education, and does not produce original designs to differentiate teaching, starts to repeat himself after a while. This routine also negatively affects professional satisfaction in the long run. Compulsory digital transformation experienced with Covid-19 has been a savior for many instructors in this line.” 

“A VERY IMPORTANT STEP TO PROVIDE EQUAL OPPORTUNITY IN EDUCATION”

Stating that Covid-19 epidemic brought digitalization into education much earlier and faster than expected Asst. Prof. Dr. Derya Kavgaoğlu concluded as follows: “Digitalization is an important milestone for global education, its spread, settlement and normalization will be a very important step in ensuring equal opportunities in education.”
