Remote learning can be tricky, not only for students but for parents as well. Children aren’t receiving the same hands-on attention as they have in the past. For most of us, that’s hard to comprehend. Homework In A Café is committed to helping students feel supported while learning remotely. We would also like to extend a warm hand to all of the parents out there trying to find a healthy balance during these times. Let’s not lose focus on what’s important, your “remote learner.” Our mentors provide the confidence they need to be successful.
Learning from a computer is difficult at any age, but by eliminating distractions, focusing on what can be accomplished, and asking students what they need to feel like they can succeed, we can get through this together.
There are many ways to help your “remote learner” be successful and feel supported. The number one recommendation is to eliminate distractions. A good start is by silencing all non-essential notifications such as phone calls, emails, and text messages. Eliminating technological distraction is a key factor in keeping our students on track with their assignments and ensuring they will focus on their virtual teachers.
Creating a structured time-frame works wonders as well. Students tend to feel overwhelmed with the number of assignments given. Another solution is to go through each assignment together and complete them one at a time. By doing this you are helping your child learn to balance their work and instilling confidence in them that they can complete all the assignments in a timely manner.
The main thing to remember is that every child is unique and what works for one student may not work for another. It will take time to find methods that will benefit your students. Homework In A Café can help with finding the most effective method for your remote learner!
