Remote or in-person learning?

Remote or in-person learning?

Omari Primm

Classroom learning involves physical interactions with a teacher and peers, while online learning transfers this component to a virtual environment.

RHS students were asked whether they prefer to be in school or work remotely.  The majority commented that they would like to be back walking the halls of RHS. 

Ky-Mani Naseer is a junior at Roosevelt High School. She thinks online learning is not good for students because it doesn’t keep students motivated and could cause students to get overwhelmed from other classes.

Students often struggle when working remotely, and being in school can make it easier for students to show their teacher exactly what they need help with. Although remote learning also goes the same way.  On Google Meet, teachers can link their screen to students so that they can see what the assignment is for the day.

Presley Botha, a freshman at Roosevelt, spoke on how he’d rather be in school in terms of having a better education and overall have a better experience. 

Alexie Smith is a freshman at Roosevelt. She likes being in school because she can learn more fluently and it’s harder for her to focus on the area around her.

With online courses, students can always access learning materials anytime during the course of their studies. While in-person courses hold the students accountable for remaining active and alert during class time. 

Whichever learning style students prefer, what matters most is that students try to do the work no matter how overwhelming it can get to pass the class they are in.
