Since March, students of all ages and their teachers have been attending classes on Zoom, often learning material that is difficult to translate to virtual classrooms.

After nine months, however, classes have fallen into a rhythm. Although it may not be the preferred learning method for many students and teachers, classes have had to adapt to the circumstances. Some teachers are taking advantage of popular apps like Instagram to help engage students, while many students have been working to build sustainable study patterns to keep themselves engaged during the pandemic.

Today on AirTalk, we want to hear from students and teachers. How have your experiences been with virtual school this year? How have you adapted? We want to hear from you! Give us a call at 866-893-5722.
