Education : Best of 2020 : Semester #1


via Google

Looking back 2020 I've come up with a roundup of what's been the best posts of my blog The Digital Teacher G-Souto

As I do during the first weeks in January every year, I am taking some time off to relax with family and prepare for the new year? No not this year. Just a memory.

I'm respecting lockdown since December. Yes, like the most of European countries and all over the world. Not easy to survive without seeing family and friends. And no culture at all. 

Concerts. theatre, movies. Closed everywhere. Luckily we have books. Internet and TV. We can read, visit virtual museums, listen some good music. And writing. Not so often as the past years. Most schools have been closed. Remote learning is there to stay. And continues in 2021.

Teachers have been in the frontlines of enabling the sudden shift to remote learning. Within a matter of weeks, educators have had to quickly adapt their engaging, aligned, in-person lessons into online learning for their students, during 2020 and continue in 2021.

"I believe all children should be able to attend school full-time, if at all possible, for many different reasons, such as social development, a safe place to be when parents are out working, and a range of cultural and sporting activities that would be difficult to do at home, as well as the importance of learning with skilled, trained teachers and other students."

Tony Bates

It's my conviction too. Children an teen are happier at school, learn better, develop social skills, they need to be among their school mates, learn in-person lessons, having teachers near. I hope this time could be back soon.

Below you’ll find the top posts of first semester 2020 containing different themes: education & IT, Covid-19, history, languages, art, science, environment, literature, e-safety, sports, dance, children's books, animation.

The selection is based on page views but also based on pedagogical relevance of the most-read posts.

I kept the order of the most viewed, and eliminated the posts that seemed less relevant. The main reason? Sometimes some posts acquire too much visibility, not for their value but for the keywords that the search engines "like" indexing.

Je suis ravie de partager avec vous le Top des billets les plus lus sur mon blog The Digital Teacher G-Souto, 1er semestre 2020 . Vous continuez à me suivre quotidiennement. Je me rends compte que souvent des étudiants me visitent.

Je vous en remercie, chers enseignants, chers lecteurs, de votre intérêt et m’efforce d’être toujours au plus proche d'événements concernant des idées pédagogiques afin de vous présenter des ressources et outils pédagogiques, au numérique ou pas. 

Pas si souvent comme les années d'avant. Le confinement, les école fermées, pas de culture, nous laissent un peu sans la volonté nécessaire d'avancer

Les technologies ont donné à cette année de Covid-19 les outils nécessaires pour l'enseignement à distance. Mais dans quelques pays, les écoles ont été réouvertes. Comme chez nous. Bien qu'une partie de l'enseignement continue à distance.

Des grandes thématiques: éducation, Covid-19, histoire, langues, science, cyber-bullying, culture, littérature, animation, arts, environnement.

Des ressources pédagogiques en ligne, et des adaptations personnelles de façon à permettre à tous les élèves la réussite dans leur parcours scolaire.

Photo Contest : Youth Eyes on the Silk Roads 2019 #UNESCOSkillsRoads

My special choice of the #1st semester 2020?  Let's talk about Water Day & COVID-19 : Clean Care is Safe Care !

Of course Covid-19 marked 2020 all over the world. The UN Secretary-General said:

"All of us face a common threat – the coronavirus – COVID 19.
Today’s declaration of a pandemic is a call to action – for everyone, everywhere.
It’s also a call for responsibility and solidarity – as nations united and as people united.
As we fight the virus, we cannot let fear go viral.
Together, we can still change the course of this pandemic – but that means addressing inaction."
António Guterres, Secretary-General UN message

Unfortunately, the world united could not change the course of the terrible pandemic. The fight is unequal. And the number of victims is horrendus.

There's hope. A vaccine was developed and people have been vaccinated all of the world countries. Let's learn about vaccine progress from the OHS.
Please pay attention. Follow the OHS advices.

Hoping to have inspire you in your lessons all over the year.

May 2021 be year of hope for all of us, be brave, teachers and students. And don't forget to keep social distance, use your masks.

Teachers who teach with passion in such difficult moments. Guiding our students the best you can to help them to be 
to the future should be a mission from the heart!
