During the pandemic distance learning became dominate for most, if not all teachers and students. Platforms, like Zoom and Google Meet allowed for students and teachers to continue to connect with one another and they also allowed for students' learning to continue. There are also online programs, like Boom Cards that allow for interactive learning online. As the pandemic slowed down, distance learning did not go away. For example, many schools eliminated school days to to learning at home being possible still. In college classes, many students are still able tov. 'zoom' into their classes if they are sick/ unable to physically go to their class. Technology evolving has allowed for distance learning to evolve and grow even after the pandemic. Distance learning may not be the same as in- person learning, however it is beneficial.

I agree emily distant learning has become the new normal so to speak. I personally had to do this with my own child, and it was a lot. I can not help but think about all the social interaction the kids missed out on. No recess time, lunch in the cafeteria, or just a simple raise of the hand to collaborate with their classmates. Obviously, this was for the better good for everyone and it did have some benefits now. Children and adults are more diligent in staying home when they are sick/contagious. Even work places encourage to stay home. Distant learning has really change the face of education and even in the business realm.
