Remote Learning Defined

  • Virtual Learning is taught either Synchronous or Asynchronous.  Below are the difference between both. The J-Learning at Home remote program option will include both Synchronous or Asynchronous. A J-Learning Commitment Form must be completed if remote learning is selected as the instructional choice.

    instruction is two-way, real-time, virtual instruction between the teachers and students when students are not on campus.

    Instruction is provided through a computer or other electronic device or over the phone.

    A required amount of instructional time is scheduled each day, and funding is generated when attendance is recorded daily at a locally selected snapshot time.

    instruction does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time. Instruction includes pre-recorded videos and pre-assigned work

    Instruction that does not require having the instructor and student engaged at the same time

    In this method, students learn from instruction that is not necessarily being delivered in person or in real time

    This type of instruction may include various forms of digital and online learning, such as prerecorded video lessons or game-based learning tasks that students complete on their own, and pre-assigned work and formative assessments made available to students on paper
