Because of the world wide confinement due to the Coronavirus, everthing is closed, schools included except food shops.
In the majority part of Europe it is a problem that all schools are closed because they don't have an appropriate equipment to give lessons via internet in video conferences.
I was very surprised when I heard from my son that in Amsterdam, Toby my 9 year old grandson uses Dad's old laptop to practicise and learned very quickly how to use it to attend virtual classes of his school.
Three times a week the class and the teacher are united on the screen and she gives lessons. The children are then given homework to do.
The parents put them in the School's mailbox and the teacher picks them up from there. I think this is a very good method, but probably impossible to practicise on the countryside or in little villages.
I think once the Coronavirus crisis is over, we all will have learned a lot and will see many things in another way. We will realize what is really important in our lives and what not. The world will turn completely different. How, nobody knows, as it is the first time in history that we are all sitting in the same boat, not only one or two countries or two parts of the world, this time the whole world is concerned and the whole population lives under the general lockdown.
