Without a doubt, we are facing one of the most important challenges in the education sector, without discriminating between countries, their pedagogical systems and models, or training levels, the expansion of COVID-19 is marking a before and after in educational action across the globe. We believe that, except for those programs strictly designed to be developed in virtual mode, no other system, including the university, as well as the teaching communities that provided strictly face-to-face training, were sufficiently prepared to ensure the teaching-learning process in these times. of crisis. We are aware that the educational objectives will surely not be covered in their entirety, since the different elements of the curriculum, such as content, resources, methodologies, among others, require not only time for planning but above all, they requested, at the time, previous training processes. professorship on issues of managing platforms and tools with appropriate technologies, strategies for managing study time and homework, etc. In short, multiple lines of training were definitely undervalued, since no one could see that millions of people were confined to compulsory confinement, as the only mechanism for preventing an illness that still has no decisive cure. Obviously it has not only been the school in its entirety that has been affected, the health and health systems are the ones with the greatest need and care in these times, however, an educational reflection on how this crisis is being faced can serve in the future as a a Decalogue to consider on how to proceed in circumstantial situations such as a pandemic. COVIDA-20 is made up of a group of professors of different nationalities and affiliations, who, united by passion in education and research, want to launch an idea of solidarity, through which we will build a reflection on those issues that directly or tangentially affect to education. Paradoxically, in the so-called information age we feel disoriented precisely because of the bombardment of unreliable sources, which are gradually undermining people in general and leading them to make poor decisions on issues such as child care at home, school management guided by adults in spaces with or without technological inputs, etc.
