One More Disadvantage: Distance Education Experiences of Immigrant and Refugee Students in the Current Pandemic
Gün, Fatih; Selvitopu, Abdullah
Journal of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies, v7 n1 2023
The main purpose of this phenomenological study is to understand immigrant and refugee students' distance education experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study group consisted of nine participants, four males and five females, using the snowball sampling method. We prepared a semi structured interview form consisting of ten questions considering the context of the reviewed literature on immigrant and refugee students and COVID-19. Four themes emerged from the data analysis: (a) I wish there was no COVID, (b) Internet, tablet, Zoom and EBA, etc., all about distance education, (c) Distance versus face-to-face education, and (d) Anti-Socialization or WhatsApp Socialization. Findings from this study suggested that participants were upset, bored, or scared. They could not attend learning activities since they lacked the technical devices and tools critical for two-way interaction. Their relations have mostly broken, and they have experienced socialization gaps with their friends and teachers. [Note: The issue number (2) shown in the citation on the PDF is incorrect.
