The article “COVID-19 has made our world more virtual. Here are three reasons why this is a good thing” — originally published by the World Economic Forum on October 8, 2020 — explores three major ways that COVID-19 has made our world more virtual and the benefits that these shifts may have. In their discussion of virtual learning in K-12 schools and higher education, they cite the fact that Michigan Virtual Advanced Placement courses “recorded higher scores than their in-class peers over the past three years.”
