To answer my own question, the biggest pro to distance learning at the moment would be to limit the spread of COVID 19. Since children and students are all bunched up in a classroom, many students will/have been reciveing the virus. During times such as these, we need to keep to everyone as safe as possible, with that being a pro the con to distance leanring is determining how well the students are retaining the information. Since the children are at home, there are many distractions such as video games, televison, etc. which can hinder their learning.
