What does the teacher role look like in an online environment?

« Back  |  

The teacher role in an online environment vs a brick and mortar school is very different. Our teachers are not juggling the synchronous needs of 30 students, 5 times a day. This leaves more time for teachers to ensure that each and every student has a personalized pathway to success in their class. At ASUPD we have a variety of different learners and thus, have a different strategy for each student. Some students join every lesson and are pretty independent. The communication with these students looks a bit different than a student that may be struggling and needs daily contact from their teacher. Since these students are not getting the big group experience as much, the teacher is able to focus their time on personalizing support for each student.
