The COVID-19 pandemic took the world by surprise.
Globally, everything has stopped. Projects have been delayed, workplaces closed and schools shut down. The world seems to have ground to a halt because of the novel coronavirus.
While countries are at different points in their COVID-19 infection rates, worldwide there are currently more than 1.2 billion children in 186 countries affected by school closures due to the pandemic.
However, students continue their education through online learning and via video calls with their teachers, especially in big cities such as Kathmandu. The model is currently the best alternative as keeping schools open poses a safety risk for students.
During nation-wide lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic, CBIA School running with the help of Volunteer Society Nepal also has been implementing regular classes through digital media and keeping its students engaged.
Over the past month, CBIA School has begun using an online video calling portal like the zoom app to reach out to their students.
This is the first instance that all teachers and students are coming together online. As a result, both teachers and students are facing new challenges. At the same time, they are also getting new experiences.
