Unlike a traditional face-to-face school, students will find that:
- Most, if not all, fellow students attend schools in different countries;
- The main communication channel between teacher and student is through the Pamoja Platform.
- A student may not necessarily be online at the same time as their teacher and classmates and will spend a lot of time working on their own and communicating asynchronously. However, through the use of online tools on the Pamoja Platform, it is possible to carry on a lively dialogue and collaborate actively with teachers and classmates.
