Emergency Remote Teaching: Response of Pandemic Pedagogy as a New Normal Teaching
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

The main thrust is to explore conceptual foundation, instructional design, delivery mechanisms, Crisis Management, and Benchmark proposals for high-performing Emergency Remote Teaching plans. Since the Pedagogical Approach of ERT is also based on Humanizing Pedagogy and Pedagogy of Care to adapt to student needs, some other aspects include assessing the system’s current digital infrastructure (internet, device access), student and teacher digital capabilities, and budget availability must be considered while adopting emergency remote teaching. This work will prepare the school, university, and college teachers to acquire 21st-century skills and competence along with technology-supported pedagogical innovations based on different technologies, digital tools, and techniques to enrich the emergence of remote teaching experiences.

Empowering students to shape pandemic budgets

Rating
0.0 stars

The Chicago Public Schools typically operate with a $7.7 billion annual budget that now has over $2.3 billion in federal stimulus funding to address inequities, COVID-related impacts and gaping needs. That is a 30% increase beyond a typical CPS budget that normally has very little room to address historic inequities. However, there is no participatory budget process in place to allow students or CPS families to have their voices heard in the process. This unit plan is designed to change that and provide opportunities for students to directly influence the budget process at this critical moment when historic inequities have widened.

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Within its first several months, the COVID-19 pandemic had already affected more than 33 million people and claimed more than 1 million lives. While vaccines are helping slow the spread of the disease. transmission rates in some areas remain high. And the rise of new viral mutations means continued vigilance is required. Unfortunately, current genome sequencing methods are lacking, with none managing to combine high precision, a simple workflow, and low cost in one tool. The recently developed Coronavirus Genomic Surveillance (CorvGenSurv) platform is designed to close that gap. CorvGenSurv amplifies viral RNA samples and sequences them in three segments via long-read, high-throughput sequencing. This design reduces sequencing data waste, thus preventing dropouts in genome coverage, and the long-read approach makes the sequencing workflow simpler than short-read sequencing..."

The COVID-19 pandemic worsened energy insecurity in the US, particularly for vulnerable populations. Prior to the pandemic, around 25% of low-income households struggled to pay energy bills, but during the early months of the pandemic, nearly 13% couldn't afford them. Racial and ethnic disparities were exacerbated, with Black and Hispanic households facing higher odds of disconnection

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Critically ill COVID-19 patients under invasive mechanical ventilation (IMV) are at greatly increased risk of death compared to the general population. While some drivers of COVID-19 disease progression, such as inflammation and hypercoagulability, have been identified, they do not completely explain the mortality of critically ill COVID-19 patients, making a search for overlooked factors necessary. A recent study examined the virome of tracheal aspirates from 25 COVID-19 patients under IMV. These samples were compared to tracheal aspirates from non-COVID patients and nasopharyngeal swabs from individuals with mild COVID-19. Critically ill COVID-19 patients had elevated expression of human endogenous retrovirus K (HERV-K), and elevated HERV-K expression in tracheal aspirate and plasma was associated with early mortality in those same patients. Among deceased patients, HERV-K expression was associated with IL-17-related inflammation, monocyte activation, and increased consumption of clotting factors..."

It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"An effective, tightly regulated immune response is critical for patients to recover from viral infections like COVID-19. Understanding immune regulation can allow researchers to develop better therapeutics and management techniques for patients. One class of factors involved with immune regulation are soluble immune mediators, which play roles in the dynamic interactions between ligands and membrane-bound receptors. Normally, soluble immune mediators help maintain and restore health after pathological events, but sometimes their dysregulation causes pathology instead. SARS-CoV-2 infection impacts many of these soluble immune mediators and, through them, many physiological processes. Thus, dysregulated shifts in the concentration of some of these molecules could be playing a significant role in COVID-19 severity and mortality..."

OER-UCLouvain: Les sacrifices du Coronavirus : confinement vs immunité collective ?
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Comment lutter contre le Coronavirus : faut-il maintenir un confinement généralisé, même dans la durée, comme dans la plupart des pays d'Europe de l'Ouest ? Ou bien faut-il surtout compter sur l'immunité collective comme l'ont (un temps) suggéré le Royaume-Uni, les Pays-Bas ou la Suède ? Dans les deux cas, lutter contre cette pandémie de COVID-19 passera forcément par des choix douloureux, qu'on va discuter dans cette vidéo. Nous discuterons les pistes de réponses qu'un raisonnement utilitariste/conséquentialiste peut donner à ces dilemmes, en envisageant notamment la question difficile des systèmes de pistage/traçage du virus par géolocalisation comme mis en oeuvre en Corée du Sud, qui pose de nombreux problèmes de protection de la vie privée.

Quels patients sauver en situation de pénurie ? Dans cette pandémie de Coronavirus, certains pays comme l'Italie ont dû faire face à une explosion de la courbe de l'épidémie, saturant la capacité de leur système de santé. Dans ce genre de situation d'urgence et de rareté des ressources, les médecins en unité de soins intensifs doivent prendre des décisions tragiques : qui pourra bénéficier d'un des rares lits et respirateurs disponibles ? Et qui faudra-t-il laisser mourir ? Dans cette vidéo participative, on va réfléchir ensemble aux différents critères éthiques pour trier les patients dans le contexte d'une pandémie, dans l'attente du développement d'une immunité collective au Covid-19. On contrastera en particulier les réponses issues de l'utilitarisme ou de l'égalitarisme sur cette question.

Open science saves lives: Lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic
Unrestricted Use
Public Domain
Rating
0.0 stars

In the last decade Open Science principles have been successfully advocated for and are being slowly adopted in different research communities. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic many publishers and researchers have sped up their adoption of Open Science practices, sometimes embracing them fully and sometimes partially or in a sub-optimal manner. In this article, we express concerns about the violation of some of the Open Science principles and its potential impact on the quality of research output. We provide evidence of the misuses of these principles at different stages of the scientific process. We call for a wider adoption of Open Science practices in the hope that this work will encourage a broader endorsement of Open Science principles and serve as a reminder that science should always be a rigorous process, reliable and transparent, especially in the context of a pandemic where research findings are being translated into practice even more rapidly. We provide all data and scripts at https://osf.io/renxy/.
