Psychiatric and mental health nursing interventions continue to be strongly influenced by immediate environmental changes, which is well documented, more so during the current times of the COVID-19 pandemic that has resulted in closures of schools/colleges all across the world. Globally, over 1.2 billion children are out of the classroom. As a result, education has changed dramatically, with the rise of digital learning, whereby teaching is undertaken almost for all age groups including nursery classes.
While the college and school closures due to the pandemic have resulted in a sudden shift away from the classroom in many parts of the globe, some are wondering whether the adoption of online learning will continue to persist post pandemic, and how such a shift would impact the learning behaviors and education system as a whole due to high growth and adoption in education technology. Although research suggests that online learning has been shown to increase retention of information, and take less time, suggesting that the changes coronavirus has caused might be here to stay, it has been projected that online education would overtake all education systems, be phone apps, virtual tutoring, video conferencing tools, or online learning software, there has been a significant surge in usage since COVID-19 pandemic.
The pandemic has likely accelerated that timeline significantly. Since now, there is no one in the field of education and training who is not doing automation as a way to become more competitive, and more resilient. Furthermore, it is predicted that creative jobs would survive automation because creativity is a uniquely human trait that no algorithm can replace.
There is a need to do research studies on this issue to establish the effects of learning behaviors of students, which has detrimental effects on mental health of the youth. There is danger of loss of human skills as our adoption of automation increases. Soft skills is a uniquely human trait that no algorithm can replace. Therefore, there is a need to develop strategies and models for shared responsibility or partnering to accomplish needs to be focused on various nursing care skills and communication across multiple contexts.
Dear readers, continuous efforts are done by authors, reviewers, and the editorial team to bring out this 21st issue of the ISPN journal, which is presented to you, to enhance scientific and advance, knowledge and practice of psychiatric-mental health nursing.
