MANY SCREENS, ONE CLASSROOM
Davidson Academy Online students might live across the country, but they most definitely go to school together. With regular weekly class schedules, students meet on video-conferencing software. Classes have up to three hours of live sessions each week. Through shared video screens, they participate in rich, content-based discourse, work in small groups, collaboratively solve problems, interact with teacher- or student-led discussions, and take notes—and even hang out together before and after class.
I’m in classes with other students . . . For me, the fact that school is online means that I also have time alone that I really appreciate. I can actually be myself more, and more of the time, than at a brick and mortar school.
