COVID-19 is introducing many families to online learning for the first time. But this isn’t new for everyone in Kansas and Missouri.
Lauren Weber, a high school social studies teacher from Insight School of Kansas (ISKS), has 12 years of experience in the virtual classroom. In an interview with ABC Kansas City, she shares how it’s not that different from a live classroom. They still have live classes, and can see and interact with one another through the chat box and live cams that ISKS students and teachers have with their school laptops.
The Missouri Virtual Academy (MOVA) is in its second year of providing K-12 students across the state with an online alternative. MOVA Head of School Steve Richards shares that they are a free online public school for students and shares tips for those new to virtual learning.
These virtual veterans have some advice for parents pushing into the new year. Watch the full interview here.
