The coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) has caused an unprecedented crisis in all areas. In the field of education, this emergency has led to the mass closure of face-to-face activities of educational institutions in more than 190 countries in order to prevent the spread of the virus and mitigate its impact.
As the second year of the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, it is critical to prioritize efforts to return to face-to-face education under the best possible safety conditions in all schools across the country. In the event of the need for confinement, it is recommended that schools be the last to close and the first to open when authorities begin to lift restrictions.
The impact of school closures has been devastating worldwide, affecting the learning, protection and well-being of children and adolescents. Evidence shows that it is the most vulnerable children who suffer the worst consequences.
Today, AbracadabraZ is doing its bit to help educational institutions to move forward, so that students do not drop out and have another incentive to finish their studies.
For this reason we have deployed the entire team to broadcast live and via streaming the Graduation Ceremony of the English Culture students.
With great satisfaction we can say that it was a very moving event, carried out under all the rules of care and social distancing.
In the words of one graduate: “I would have liked my family to be here and not just watch it on the computer. But it also had its good side, because other family members were able to see him who, even if there was no pandemic, would not have been able to come. I think that, like everything else, it had its good things and its bad things. I hope that when the pandemic passes, we can do a mix, face-to-face and streaming.”.
It is clear that, if this solution is not a replacement for on-site attendance, it is undoubtedly a complement that is here to stay.
