Distance Learning's Impact on Children: Printable Worksheets to Boost Well-being

Children experienced significant challenges and long-term impacts after distance learning during the pandemic. Students were forced into a sudden lifestyle change, switching from in-person classes to completely virtual learning. This abrupt change led to academic instability and social isolation and was coupled with family stressors such as illness, job loss, and grief. As a result, the impact of distance learning goes beyond academics, causing challenges for students’ mental health and social-emotional development.

Studies found increased rates of depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and other mental health issues among students during periods of remote schooling. In a learning study conducted by Harvard University, researchers found a rise in anxiety, poor emotional management, and an increase in temper tantrums. Another study found an effects that included disturbed sleep patterns, attention deficits, frustration, stress, and boredom. Though the research is ongoing, it is evident that the isolation from friends and teachers and the dependence on technology for learning heavily impacted students’ social-emotional well-being. 

To support our youth and families in dealing with the negative effects of the pandemic, we have created activities that can aid children with their wellbeing through social-emotional learning.
