Are there any differences between K-5 and 6-12 online learning?

« Back  |  

K-5 students spend more time in the group setting and with their teacher in Zoom. These students begin the day on Zoom with their class for homeroom and their lesson, then they have a break, and in the afternoon teachers will pull small groups of students into Zoom for targeted, personalized support. 6-12 students have less synchronous time than K-5.

The amount of synchronous and asynchronous time can be customized to meet the needs of our partners.
