It Can’t Be All Positive, Right?

Although online learning has numerous benefits there are still a few things you as a parent would need to consider. It is important to know that online learning does provide education to all ages and with this also comes responsibility from you as the parent. Younger students will still need an adult to help and guide them through their learning activities and make sure that they are completing as well as understanding the work provided. Not all students will be able to sit down and remain focused for hours on end and will need the guidance of an adult to focus when necessary and also take breaks when needed.

It will also be important for the student to have a social outlet as they would have had at a traditional school setup such as sport, music or art. With this in mind, it is important that the student take enough screen “down time” as blue light can be damaging to the eyes.
