Now that this most bizarre school year is coming to an end and that we have had both in-person regular classes and virtual classes, it is time to think about which one of the two options we prefer and why.
From the point of view of a teacher, and although virtual classes can be an excellent complement to traditional teaching, I believe there is no such dilemma about the issue. The percentage of students who have dropped out or who haven't done things in a fair way is incredibly high and frustrating!!!
Here are some newspaper articles for you to read and a video in Spanish about an Italian university professor talking about the issue:
