If you're like many parents around the world whose children’s school year is looking very different from the last, then you're probably searching anywhere and everywhere for tips on how to support e-learning for your family.
Luckily, we can help. At DeVry University, we’ve been teaching online classes for more than 20 years. While coursework, attention spans and other factors can certainly vary between child and adult learners, the general recipe for success is relatively similar. Take a look at 6 of our favorite e-learning tips for kids to help you make the most of this unprecedented time.
Depending on your child's age, e-learning can offer flexibility to suit individual learning styles and habits and better accommodate your own work schedule. You know your family best, and know when you work your best. If your e-learning program allows for flexible independent learning time, fine-tune your schedule to suit both your needs.
More personalized approach
Everyone learns at different speeds. In a classroom, a teacher has the difficult task of moving everyone along through a lesson at the same pace. With e-learning, you get a first row seat to see how your child is performing in different subjects. You can tailor the time you spend helping your child on the subjects that need it most, and spend less time on the topics they've mastered. Not only can this personalization boost retention, but it can also help make your child more engaged in the material.
Improved technical and communication skills
E-learning gives children more exposure to different software and communication methods that may be essential skills in their future workspaces. Because e-learning is not an exact replica of an in-class environment, it can encourage teachers and students to create well-thought-out questions—and intentional responses.
