Virtual learning hasn't been too hard but one of the major things that are a problem for me is speaking up in class. Since we are not in actual school I have not felt the need to participate as much. That is a bad thing because some of my teachers may feel like I am not paying attention even when I am. Another thing about virtual learning is that I haven’t talked to any of my classmates. The only time I talk to my classmates is when we are put in a breakout room on zoom together. One of the good things about being on virtual learning is that my grades have gone up because I have been less distracted by my classmates.
