However, technology has been greatly impacted by COVID-19, seeing that a lot of new trends are now coming up. Some of those trends will be mentioned in this article.



Delivery and online shopping

Seeing as restaurants have been closing due to the pandemic, delivery service has been more useful than ever. Companies like DoorDash, Grubhub and Uber Eats have been delivering food to hungry Americans since the beginning of the pandemic, and right now, they will continue to do so.

Online learning

Since some Americans may have more time of their hands, the quarantine has been a time to discover new hobbies and new projects, as well as educating yourself. Kindergarten students and college students have been learning from the comfort of their own home, and experts predict that this type of learning will continue even after the pandemic. Distance learning is a good solution for some students, but not for everyone, since this type of learning could create pressure on some parents. However, during the pandemic it is a solution worth keeping. And even if you are not a student, there are many ways to educate yourself online. Platforms like MasterClass and Skillshare are great for discovering your passion, whether it be photography or animation.

Even though the quarantine is a difficult time for everyone, technology has helped a lot of people to cope with the pandemic.
