Primary Education in Post-Corona Period: New Times - New Trends

Tatiana Dovzhenko

Abstract


Home education especially for primary students has always been an educational phenomena that cause a lot of discussion. This form of education process organization has both its adherents and opponents. The Coronavirus Pandemic imperatively applied this form of learning to all students in the world. The most vulnerable category of students during the periods associated with sharp changes in the form of educational services provision (disasters, wars, isolation, etc.) is traditionally primary school one. Their educational priorities have not been formed yet; the habit of learning as a form of activity has not been established; due to age, they have a great need for gradual psychological and physiological adaptation to the process of obtaining knowledge, etc. This article attempts to predict the main problems (as well as trends) that Primary School Institute will have to face after Corona. In our opinion, the Coronavirus period will have quite negative consequences for children (they have to be eliminated by teachers and educators when students return to classes), while the system of pedagogical work with primary school children has been enriched with new forms of work and intensified by more productive interaction with parents (mainly at parents` initiative).
