Distance Learning is implemented because the students are not in the same location as the educators/teachers. Naturally, this was done considering that to prevent the transmission of the spread of the Covid-19 virus, schools were closed and health protocols were enforced by keeping a distance. Model Distance Learning / Distance Learning can be done by holding online learning activities such as conferences, webinars, classes or self-study programs.
The advantage of Distance Learning / Distance Learning is that students can carry out learning activities at their own pace.
They also don’t need to come or attend school, they just do it from home so they can be more comfortable studying. Even though students are doing distance learning from home, they can still learn in synchronous mode, i.e. they can study at the same time as their peers.
Then, students come to class/school according to a predetermined schedule, to confirm the understanding of learning that has been done, discuss things that are still not understood, or can also carry out experiments that cannot be done at home. In addition, in class/school, teachers can also invite students to discuss in small groups to deepen the material being studied.
Upon returning from school, students can return to reflecting on their learning outcomes at home or can also learn new things as assigned by the teacher, so the cycle repeats itself.
With the Flipped Classroom model described above, students at Noble Academy do not need to attend school every day. They came to Noble Academy according to a predetermined schedule. Students will work on assignments at home for three or four days and go to school to study in class for one day.
