Research methodology: The statistical population of the study includes all single parent children 7 to 10 years old in Zahedan in the academic year 2021-2022. To select the research sample, first 40 people were available as a sample through cluster random sampling. Data collection tools in this study included a questionnaire. Results: Findings showed that intellectual computer games affect increasing creative concentration and thinking in children of divorce. Based on the findings, it can be stated that computer games are a mental and cognitive activity that leads children to reach high levels of thinking and increase their concentration and creative thinking. Limitations: One of the most important limitations of the present study is that due to the timing of the conference, researchers did not have enough time to conduct follow-up tests to sustain the impact of brain teasers. Contribution: Another use of mind games is in teaching and learning, especially for single parents and divorced children who have less concentration. Therefore, due to the high desire and tendency of children to computer games.

Corona Virus (COVID-19) Pandemic Knowledge, Perceptions and Practices among Nigerian Academic Communities

Purpose: This study assesses Nigerian academic communities’ (NAC) knowledge, perception, and practices regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. Research Methodology: Online snowball sampling technique with 5-point Likert scale online questionnaire was used to assess NAC knowledge, perception, and practices amidst coronavirus pandemic. About 368 participants comprised of academic and non-academic staff from north central geopolitical zone of Nigeria participated in the study. Responses were analysed using the SPSS. Result: NAC gathered, shared, and updated their knowledge about COVID-19 mostly through social media. Participants professed social media as the most effective platform for education and updates on COVID-19 compared to the conventional media and government sources. Despite that, participants were discovered to have slight issues in differentiating real news from fake ones. The participants reasonably practised precautionary measures as directed by the government and centre for disease control. Limitations: This study is limited to academic environment while COVID-19 affects all sundries and sectors of the economy respectively. Contribution: This study contributes to the knowledge and insight of COVID-19 among NAC and suggests means of managing the virus to avoid further spread.

Predictors of Performance in Mathematics of Science, Technology And Engineering Students of a Public Secondary School in The Philippines

Purpose: To fully participate in the future world, students of today should be mathematically skilled. Nowadays, mathematics backs directly and fundamentally the ways of business, health, finance, governance, and technology. Thus, this study predicts the performance in Mathematics through attitude in Mathematics, reflective thinking skills, and problem-solving skills of the Science, Technology, and Engineering (STE) students. Research methodology: This study utilized the descriptive-predictive method. It was conducted in Sto. Tomas National High School has 58 respondents. Results: There is a positive significant relationship between attitude in Mathematics, reflective thinking skills, and performance in Mathematics. However, it was revealed that there is a negative not significant relationship between problem-solving skills and performance in Mathematics. Furthermore, it was discovered that attitude in Mathematics significantly predicts performance in Mathematics. Limitations: The study is quantitative non-experimental research. The respondents are only those students who specialized in science, mathematics, and engineering. Contribution: The model that predicts the performance in Mathematics can be considered by mathematics teachers in improving the performance of STE students in Mathematics.

Emergency Online Teaching-Learning Model in the Context of Higher-Level Education due to the COVID-19 Pandemic

Purpose: The study aims at determining a new and complete picture of the ongoing online teaching-learning model based on the university student’s perception of online learning and university teachers’ experiences with their online teaching. Methodology: This study followed a mixed-method approach where both qualitative and quantitative methods are applied. In total 335 university students of both males and females are selected randomly using a questionnaire through Google format. Results: Online platform is the best option to save students from collapsing the academic world in the pandemic situation and so this study developed a new teaching and learning model analysing the practical situation of respondents. It is the main result of it. Limitations: We started this research in 2021 during the horrible COVID-19. Due to which we could not go to the field and collect the data, we have collected the data through the online platform. These are the major limitations of the study. Contribution: However, we mentioned a model for maintaining a graduate-level educational system if any kind of pandemic will come in the future.

The regulatory documents on state support for cinematography from official sources were studied.  Results: Based on the documents' data a diagram showing the transition of the development of cinematography in Ukraine to a higher level was built. It entails new modeling of development in the future.  Limitations: This research uses the descriptive approach dew the special of the theme. Contributions: The novelty and significance of the worldwide humanitarian science lie in the fact that the demonstration of the general experience of Ukraine in the field of cinematography can be used by scientists from other countries to build appropriate management mechanisms in their countries.

Teaching and Learning of English as a Foreign Language: The Impact of COVID-19

Purpose:  The purpose of this study was to discover the primary changes that the higher education systems–especially at the department level–brought in their teaching systems as a result of COVID-19.

The collected data from the participants were transcribed and read several times and the emerged codes and themes were analyzed accordingly.  Results: The findings of this study indicated that there were some major changes in the teaching instructions where the learners faced some barriers when trying to adapt themselves to new changes. On the other hand, the paper revealed some opportunities EFL learners experienced in dealing with the changes in the teaching and learning system.  Limitations: The limited sample size and the non-random selection method could be listed as limitations of this study. Contributions: The current paper provides the readers with suggestive approaches and opportunities university teachers and students could consider during any future pandemic.
