The author, through this editorial article, will show some of her clinical observations regarding the whole process of lock down of COVID-19 pandemic and the influences of all these alterations in a child’s learning process, taking classes at a distance, through computer or cell phone. In the article written by Cowan (2014) entitled Working Memory Underpins Cognitive Development, Learning, and Education, the author is saying that working memory is the information that can be held in mind and important to execute some cognitive activities. This kind of memory is related to information process, intelligence, executive functions, solving-problems, learning, comprehension, ranging from children to old people and in all animals. On the other hand, there is the long-term memory that is the amount of information that is recorded in the person’s life [1].
