Organization, structure, discipline and independence are key factors that govern academic success for many students. With online learning, these foundational skills have become even more crucial. Help your child accelerate his/her educational future with the tips below:
1. A Well-Loved Study Corner
Help your child foster a love for learning by letting your student choose and decorate a favorite study corner at home that is quiet, clutter-free, and conducive to learning. A well-loved learning space is a child’s key to unlock intrinsic motivation and academic success.
2. Banish Distractions
The best lesson to prepare students for the 21st century and beyond is how to conquer distractions. The golden ticket here is to show your child how to do one thing at a time and do it well. For example, if a student is doing a math worksheet, that should be the only thing that’s in front of the child. If the internet is needed, then treat it as a 2-step process. Close the internet after the student got the needed directions, then have the student focus on the math worksheet only. All other devices off and out of sight.
3. Set Hourly Goals
