Supporting your child on their E-journey

It would be an understatement to say that the Global pandemic revolutionised education systems as we knew them, but would also be an injustice to the leps and bounds we've made to disregard the many opportunities and revolutionary ways in which education has become accessible to children. However, when we ourselves were raised in the era of chalkboards and dictation - how can we support our children's E-learning in the digital age?

Below I've posted a few tips from my own personal learning experience during the pandemic - and in the classroom to help you support your childs E-learning journey.

1. Set Aside Time
I know it's a no-brainer, but the transition from leisure-to-learning is almost as integral as the learning itself! From the television to smartphones and tablets, screens are at the forefront of our lives. This is why it's important to set aside a few moments before online learning to get our child's mind ready for the activity at hand. In the same way we wash our hands before dinner, we must prepare young minds for learning. 5 to 10 minutes before lesson time doing an activity away from the screen (such as a puzzle, storytime or listening to music) will aid "computer fatigue" or burnout and ultimately prepare your child for E-Learning.

2. Set Goals
It's very easy booking online lessons and looking at the offered content/syllabus but get to know your child ad understand their academic expectations. It's all good and well having our children being able to spell "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" but do they know what it means? Communication with your child's E-teacher will help you understand your child's progress their academic goals. You will also be able to support learning outside of the "classroom" to ensure information is being retained and understood.

3.Growth Mindset
Growth Mindset is something teachers used to tell ME in high school, but now I'm much older I have to say, it is integral to any successful learning journey, regardless of age. Reflecting on failures, identifying opportunities to grow and setting goals is integral to a growth mindset. In addition to feedback from teachers and support at home, a growth mindset is practised, especially in a world of instant validation it can feel quite frustrating. But remember growth is steady, and slow and steady wins the race.

4. Solidy Information
Your E-teachers and tutors can put in all the work in the world, but it is important that families continue to solidify information after lessons. The easiest way is to ask the questions " What did you learn today?" and "What does that mean?" are the easiest. Getting your child to explain what they've learned is also the easiest way to identify information that may need to be solidified.

5. Patience
And finally, patience!
E-learning is relatively new, and all children are different. Remember to be patient in supporting your child and encourage them to have fun!

Though short and sweet, I hope this article has helped you identify ways in which you can help your child's E-leaning journey!
