Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between remote and hybrid learning?

Remote learning happens when the student and teacher are separated by time and/or distance. In other words, they are not in a traditional classroom setting. Hybrid learning combines traditional classroom teaching with online/remote activities. For educators who are interested in remote learning, take a look at Promethean’s new section ‘Learning Beyond the Classroom: a Hybrid Primer.’
