Living in a post-covid-19 world, it is hard to imagine a day without the internet, let alone the absence of a cell phone or laptop.
Sudden Turn of Events
Everyone knew that electronic devices and 4th generation internet were becoming a necessity, but no one could have possibly imagined having to rely on them for menial life tasks to major business necessities.
The Concept of ‘Work from Home’
Take, for example, the pandemic introduced the concept of ‘work from home,’ which was nowhere to be found a year earlier when disabled people wanted to make the most of their resources by working online and making a living for themselves so they did not feel bad about their disability; but we’re not here to get into the politics of it.
Online Teaching and Learning
On a rather large scale, everything; I mean everything-from kindergarten classes to university lectures to official business dealings; began to take place online.
Be it a teacher, a student, or a well-established business tycoon, everyone had to work from home; for stepping outside risked a highly contagious highly likely encounter with death which would not just stop at killing the person, but everyone they came in contact with.
Naturally, the wisest thing to do under these circumstances would be to avoid leaving the house as well as avoid social interaction, physically.
This dawning phenomenon also triggered the popularity of various online video and conference calling platforms to replace physical classes and in-person business meetings.
Quite predictably, the number of time people spent on their electronic devices also increased. Since now businesses rely on phone calls and online transactions, emails, and video conferences, while schools and colleges now rely on online lectures, email assignments, student portals, and online quizzes entirely.
While some of us felt helpless locked away inside four walls, younger children and infants felt freer than ever not having to abide by the disciplinarian rules, boring uniforms, and most of all-needing their cell phones or tablets to do school work.
How Online Schools Became a Challenge for Parents?
This newer epidemic made it easier for children to get away with a lot on the premise that they were ‘researching for homework purposes’ or ‘studying’ for school or college giving birth to a whole new host of epic parenting challenges.
While it was a challenge for info-tech literate parents, the problem was pretty much invisible to IT-illiterate parents, inevitably, becoming an even bigger challenge to be pinned down and overcome.
Sooner or later, invariably, parents were bound to figure out that the increased online data consumption had had some adverse effects on the behavioral and thought patterns of their children.
