Let’s Talk about Employment prospects after a pandemic!
According to the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered one of the worst jobs crises since the Great Depression. There is a real danger that the crisis will increase poverty and widen existing inequalities, with the impact felt for years to come. Countries now need to do everything they can to stop this jobs crisis from turning into a social crisis. Reconstructing a better and more resilient labor market is an essential investment in the future and in future generations. As NEETs are already a marginalized group of people, learning about the employment prospects after this pandemic and gaining new digital skills (such as the skill to plan and record a podcast) are very important.
In this WebQuest, your task is to form a group of three or more people, learn more about job prospects after a pandemic, make a plan for a podcast and then record and publish this podcast. It might sound like a lot of work, but we are sure that you will find new interesting information and have a lot of fun during the process!
In the following part, you will find out many resources so you can understand the topic of employment during and after the covid-19 pandemic. Then you will make a plan for your own podcast. With the right tools, you will record your very own podcast and publish it. Your final podcast should be around 60 minutes long.
Let’s get started!
