Five basic guidelines for virtual classrooms

Digital teaching is here to stay. Teaching in the virtual classroom and the use of digital tools will still be part of everyday school life after the pandemic. There are a few rules to follow in order to teach and learn successfully online.

Virtual classrooms enable digital teaching and collaborative learning. Digital teaching is not only a great alternative to traditional teaching, it can also be used to complement face-to-face teaching.

But online learning is not the same as face-to-face teaching. One should know that

  • the concentration span of children between 12 and 16 years of age decreases after about 30 minutes
  • a lack of interaction and concentrated work on the screen leads to faster fatigue.


Virtual lessons, especially long lessons, are a real challenge for children. It is therefore important to make the lessons varied and engaging and to include short breaks.

We have summarised the five most important tips for successful digital teaching for you in an infographic, which you can also download free of charge at the very bottom.
