What is ACCESS Distance Learning instruction?
Distance learning instruction involves teaching students high-quality course content via Videoconferencing Instruction or the Internet. As in a traditional, face-to-face classroom, teachers facilitate daily learning using discussions, projects, labs, group work, and writing workshops. By providing feedback, remediation, and enrichment, distance learning instructors guide students through State-Approved Curricula using the latest interactive instructional models.
