Kids remote learning in itself isn’t a new concept. Even in pre-pandemic times, schools have conducted online classes to help students pick up new skills over the holidays. Leading universities have offered distance learning programs for overseas students, and popular e-learning platforms have made a variety of certificate courses available at the click of a button. However, never before has the traditional classroom setup been entirely replaced by remote learning.
At present, the very mechanics of imparting education are undergoing what may well be their biggest restructuring to date. Course content, teaching methodologies, and even the tools and techniques that facilitate them, are being reshaped for a digitally driven process. This holds true for every stage of a child’s education, but the challenges are particularly significant at the pre- and primary school levels.
Amid travel restrictions, social distancing, and an indefinite hold on so many things that we had taken for granted, it’s hardly fair to expect students to stay self-motivated. Things may be relatively manageable for high school and college students with some prior experience in online learning. Young children, on the other hand, are at risk of losing interest in formal education altogether. Studies have already shown that they are studying less than they used to when they went to school.
Educators and child psychologists have always emphasised the importance of keeping early learning as engaging, interactive and hands-on as possible. This is why kindergartens and primary schools are equipped with kid-friendly learning aids that impart knowledge and develop wide-ranging skills through games, puzzles and creative activities. Now, the onus is not only on making these systems available remotely, but also on making them work in the absence of a close-knit classroom environment.
1. Let them choose
Successful kids remote learning setups offer their students a considerable degree of choice throughout the learning process. The idea is simple – let children feel that there’s more to their online classes than simply listening to lectures or following instructions on a screen. Set up online learning tasks for each subject, and give your students the freedom to choose what they wish to complete first.
Even simple learning tools like activity packs can support this effort. With the freedom to attempt a quiz in their favourite subject, maintain a journal, or try their hand at a new drawing medium, kids can stay engaged, focused and inspired to take their learning to the next step.
You may not be able to avoid technical glitches in your kids remote learning sessions, but you can certainly keep other ‘snags’ at bay! A little effort on your part can go a long way in removing friction and communication gaps, and keeping your young students excited about the learning process.
Set up assignments and activities in such a way that students are able to understand the requirements within seconds. Deploy multimedia presentations, interactive examples and other tools that are now available to you thanks to the internet. Use platforms like Google Classroom where assignments can be completed, submitted and evaluated without putting students, parents and teachers through the hassle of printing, scanning and emailing.
It’s also best to research high-quality homeschooling essentials that can facilitate kids remote learning. Bring yourself up to speed on trusted and affordable stationery brands, drawing and writing materials ideal for pre-schoolers, subject books that keep notes organised, and early learning tools that can emulate the kindergarten classroom experience at home. If you need help identifying such products, our product specialists will be happy to step in!
Kids remote learning setups often eliminate the student-student or student-teacher interaction that would have happened in a regular classroom. It’s easy for the entire experience to become ‘one-sided’, and for children to stop attending classes because they don’t have much room to participate.
Increasing engagement and establishing a one-on-one connect with your students may be difficult when you’re only interacting online, but it’s not impossible. Create group assignments from time to time. Schedule video calls with the entire class, and organise simple games and activities that can help your students get to know each other. Make the occasional phone call to check in on your students as well as their parents who are just as involved in this new way of learning.
When it comes to kids remote learning, there’s no code that you have to crack in order to motivate your students. Just focus on removing the obstacles that may be preventing your students from participating wholeheartedly, and you’ll be well on your way! Get started with a range of premium yet affordable study essentials that are perfect for learning from home.
