Asynchronous Learning - A student-centric method of teaching that uses online resources to encourage resource-sharing.
Why we talk about this at Chalkup
We talk about asynchronous learning because our platform is so well matched for facilitating it. Asynchronous learning assumes restraints on a classroom. Not enough time in a day to work together, debate, or connect. (And what are the odds that a student has his or her best idea in a 42-minute class period?) It calls on online resources to fill those gaps and share ideas outside of those constraints.
