E-learning. For some parents it can be sensitive topic – and keeping kids engaged can be a challenging task. Whether they're struggling to focus or simply uninterested in a specific topic, finding the right way to pique their interest can be tricky. You're getting a glimpse at what it might be like to homeschool your children and maybe you’re recognizing that it’s more difficult than you thought.
That's why we went straight to our very own motivation gurus for their advice. Our Student Support Advisors here at DeVry University and our Keller Graduate School of Management work with college students on a daily basis to help them succeed as they pursue their education. Read on for some of their most helpful motivation tips that can be applied to any grade level:
“Turn assignments into games,” says Louis Mills. “This is huge for my three kids. For example, if they have to learn shapes or colors, we’ll all go outside on a treasure hunt and try and find the answers. It keeps them entertained and motivated to learn more.”
“Have each family member choose a fun or silly picture to add to your learning space,” says Peter Tureson.
“Create flash cards from homework questions,” says Constance Sarullo. “Then use the cards to create your own trivia game with the question on one side and the answer on the other.”
“Start a family competition of ‘who can get their work done first," says Weringa. “You can even offer a small reward, like letting the winner choose what game to play on family night.”
