The fundamental reason for this project is that although emergency training and remote teaching frameworks have been developed, research on the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on school students has not been done before. This research is an important tool; it willhelps us gain insight into the effect that varying pedagogical approaches, technological tools, access to such resources, and the psychological and physical effects of the pandemic have on cognition and learning. The effect of online learning on wellbeing is also an important factor to be studied. According to an article published in 2018, eye strain and muscle and joint industries are some of the issues students face during online learning (Hand, 2018), and with the added difficulty adjusting to the change in learning and teaching styles, and effects on health due to the COVID-19 lockdown, these issues are likely to be exacerbated. This research aims to study these, as well as other effects of online learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. The aim of this research is to study students’ experiences in online learning from home, and the connection to emergency remote training and online teaching. The existing literature on student learning during crises does not place an emphasis on online learning, and literature on online learning does not discuss the effect a global crisis may have on students’ ability to learn such as wellbeing. This study is unique in that it seeks to study a specific phenomenon in a holistic way, that is, the lived experiences of students studying online during the Covid 19 lockdown.
