Abstract
Our research project is a meta-analysis of findings throughout the world on the effects of COVID-19 and distance learning for students of all ages. Effect categories included, but were not limited to, self-efficacy, social connectedness, mental health, and academic achievement. Many of these studies surveyed students’ first-hand experiences of learning before the pandemic, during the lockdown, and after distance and hybrid learning was implemented. Students surveyed were of all ages, from preschool through college. The vast majority of the experiences reported were overwhelmingly negative in all categories. As students began to move back into in-person learning the negative effects they felt on their productivity and motivation continued. This led us to conclude that the effects of COVID-19 made a significant impact on students socially, mentally, and educationally. These effects need to be recognized by teachers and administrators, as they will impact classrooms worldwide for the foreseeable future.
