The pandemic has brought many changes, and with it came online learning. Reflecting, both students and teachers have had to adapt to this new learning format. As a result, this also caused changes in how students and teachers interact.
Teachers who would ask the class to settle down are now pleading for contributions during online classes. Moreover, I think teachers have a better understanding of issues students are having with learning, as many teachers also experienced similar difficulties with the transition to online learning. Another change that occurred is how lenient teachers are: while some teachers remained with the same restrictions, others have been trying to make an effort to accommodate students, as they comprehend how online learning differs from learning at school.
Overall, I believe online learning has brought some positive changes to how students and teachers navigate learning, as both had to learn how to navigate new waters at the same time.
