Learning at home can be enriching for your kids while still being practical. There are a handful of benefits to home learning.
You might have heard of the expression ‘lifelong learning.’ It’s the idea that learning shouldn’t exist in a vacuum. School isn’t the only place to get an education, learning can take place outside of the classroom.
Distance education, by its very nature, integrates school and home life, exposing students to the real possibility of learning independently outside of a structured context. Home is no longer a place to simply crash out and watch YouTube videos after school – it’s a learning environment.
Learning at home can also encourage students to take ownership of their learning. While there are plenty of potential distractions, education in the home also poses a golden opportunity for students to develop a more mature and responsible outlook on their own education.
Without you hovering over their shoulders, the onus is on students to develop some self—discipline.
