The article shows the changes in the teaching done by Jon during the COVID-19 pandemic situation. Most of these approaches can be continued or perfected and implemented not only in school education but also in adult education.

In this book, Jon describes his current system,” mastery learning“. Mastery learning is a cyclical approach that empowers learners to learn at a flexible pace fitting to the abilities of the learner. It offers comprehensive corrective support when learners get off track and verifies achieved mastery of a specific skill or even competence before moving on to the next mastery cycle. Jo reports that in his science classes (Jon teaches chemistry and physics), he uses a system that blends mastery learning with flipped learning and allows learners to master content at a variable pace.
