Abstract

The UNICEF report, Life in Lockdown, published in October 2021 claimed that “although there were negative impacts, especially due to social isolation and loss of learning and networks, there were many positive outcomes and perceived opportunities, especially related to quality time with family, online learning, and time for recreation”. From initial research done on the pandemic the use of digital technology during the pandemic provided social connectedness, remote learning opportunities, and a way to cope with isolation and stress. The UNICEF report claims engaging in positive coping strategies, prosocial behaviours and online learning opportunities have been key factors in building children’s resilience during this time. In this issue of PiE the first three articles focus on the impact of COVID-19 on education.
