Online distance learning
Synchronous and Asynchronous Classes
Synchronous learning refers to all types of learning in which learner(s) and instructor(s) are in the same place, at the same time, in order for learning to take place.
Its basic premise is that learning can occur in different times and spaces particular to each learner. In asynchronous learning, instructors usually set up a learning path, which students engage with at their own pace.
Feedback and consultations
During this pandemic, students are consulted in groups to ensure strong mental health and awareness. This is to ensure that all issues and complaints by the students are resolved and met.
In Leaders, we believe that each child is essential, and that their voices and opinions are heard. Online learning is a new adjustment for everyone, and we plan to do the best to help our students adapt.
