The Plus Side to Online Learning

By Alex Maseda

On a search for an educational tech post on Twitter I found an optimistic article that discusses the positives to online learning. Though it feels the entire world came to a complete halt in March of 2020, students were able to quickly get back to some form of normalcy thanks to online learning. At first the idea seemed daunting and overwhelming for many but as Luke Smith discusses in his article, there is a lot of good that can come from connecting through zoom, google, and other classroom services.

Looking forward online learning will provide students with skills they may not have obtained in real life. These skills include independent research, and collaboration where it is guaranteed all members of a team will work together for a project. These skills, Smith explains, are valuable to the job market.
