ABSTRACT

In this article we seek to compile some academic publications made in the years 2020 and 2021 that brought the problem of remote teaching that suddenly replaced the face-to-face teaching in the mentioned years. To do so, we did a bibliographical search with the help of Google Scholar and selected the three articles in foreign language most referenced by this search engine. One of these articles was written by a Brazilian researcher, another brought an account of the reality of teaching in Zambia, while the third talked about mathematics education in Germany. We have also selected articles in Portuguese, which brought some ideas that goes from political issues to issues related to the classroom and the role of mathematics in the context of the pandemic. Additionally, we searched for books published in 2020 and 2021 that brought reports and ideas from several authors that we have shorted up here. Finally, we highlighted our experiences, trying to link them with the authors referenced earlier. © 2022 CONICET - Emiliano Aldegani. All rights reserved.

ABSTRACT

Due to all the changes in the educational paradigm and the restrictions in social relationships due to this new post-COVID-19 reality, this study is aimed at determining the motivation levels towards Physical Education of following the self-determination theory of Ryan & Deci (2012). Also, the influence of the non-curricular physical activity on the three psychological necessities gathered in the self-determination theory (i.e., autonomy, competence, and relatedness) will be analyzed. 300 students from three Valencian schools voluntarily participated in the study. Students from 12 to 17 years old were included (mean: 13.93, standard deviation: 1.32). 72.7% of the students practice non-curricular physical activities and 27.3 don't practice. Statistically significant differences were encountered in the three psychological dimensions assessed (i.e., autonomy, competence, and relatedness) between the students who practice non-curricular physical activity and those who not. Also, a significant correlation was observed between the three tested dimensions. It is also worth mentioning that relatedness is the dimension obtaining higher motivation values (4.07 out of 5 maximum points on a Likert scale). The results of the present study suggest that students who present higher motivation in one area, also present higher motivation in the other two areas. This research highlights the importance of non-curricular physical activity as a crucial factor influencing the motivation of high-school students in Physical Education.

ABSTRACT

Due to the social isolation caused by the rapid expansion of COVID-19, several higher education institutions have replaced classroom classes with classes with synchronous communication. This investigation aims to identify the level of satisfaction related to the absorption of pedagogical content in online classes applied through synchronous communication. For that, we opted for the quantitative approach, using the data collection technique through the application of an online questionnaire. The investigation was carried out after the practice of the first two months, with students enrolled in face-to-face higher education, in the countries of Brazil and Portugal, who had their teaching changed to classes with synchronous communication, taught by videoconference, through digital platforms. The results showed that both in Brazil and in Portugal, there was greater student satisfaction regarding the absorption of teaching content in this period. © Atas da Conferencia da Associacao Portuguesa de Sistemas de Informacao 2020.

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: The presence of coronaviruses on surfaces in the patient environment is a potential source of indirect transmission. Manual cleaning and disinfection measures do not always achieve sufficient removal of surface contamination. This increases the importance of automated solutions in the context of final disinfection of rooms in the hospital setting. Ozone is a highly effective disinfectant which, combined with high humidity, is an effective agent against respiratory viruses. Current devices allow continuous nebulization for high room humidity as well as ozone production without any consumables. AIM: In the following study, the effectiveness of a fully automatic room decontamination system based on ozone was tested against bacteriophage Φ6 (phi 6) and bovine coronavirus L9, as surrogate viruses for the pandemic coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. METHODS: For this purpose, various surfaces (ceramic tile, stainless steel surface and furniture board) were soiled with the surrogate viruses and placed at two different levels in a gas-tight test room. After using the automatic decontamination device according to the manufacturer's instructions, the surrogate viruses were recovered from the surfaces and examined by quantitative cultures. Then, reduction factors were calculated. FINDINGS: The ozone-based room decontamination device achieved virucidal efficacy (reduction factor >4 log10) against both surrogate organisms regardless of the different surfaces and positions confirming a high activity under the used conditions. CONCLUSION: Ozone is highly active against SARS-CoV-2 surrogate organisms. Further investigations are necessary for a safe application and efficacy in practice as well as integration into routine processes.

ABSTRACT

The coronavirus-19 disease (COVID-19) pandemic has resulted in reorganization of healthcare settings with potential impact in the delivery of clinical care to patients with neuromuscular disorders. These patients may harbour an increased risk of severe complications related to COVID-19. Several risk factors are identified such as respiratory weakness, cardiac involvement, immunosuppression and presence of comorbidities, among others. Therapeutic decisions must be considered in the best interest of the patients, and the society, with no denial of the best treatment possible. Clinical recommendations, based on expertise opinion, are presented for clinical care of patients with neuromuscular disorders.
