Picture if you will stacks and stacks of paper, and a student sitting for hours reading, filling in answers, circling A, B, C, or D. Is this what education really is? Are you going to accept this definition of education from people who think the number of hours your child spends in a seat is a measure of their worthiness to receive credit for attending school?
If you are a sensible person, your answer should be "no".
I always wondered, when schools used "seat time" as a requirement for credit, what part of the child the powers-that-be thought we were educating.
I am frankly a fan of technology, but it is a tool. Like other tools, there are proper ways to use it. Online learning should not simply be an electronic form of the packet. This video is intended as an introduction to some of the things parents should be thinking about as they educate their children at home. In 2020, millions of children found themselves doing distance learning - which doesn't have to be a bad thing. In fact, if done well, there are many benefits to teaching your child at home.
Moving forward, this site will be adding to resources, videos, blog posts, and other things intended to help both parents and teachers as the way we school our children changes.
