DISTANCE LEARNING – 10 Helpful Tips to Keep Your Kids Motivated To Learn At Home  – During COVID-19

  1. Keep a routine.
  2. Make goals and expectations crystal clear. (Students should know exactly what tasks they need to complete).
  3. Keep simple, clear directions. Try not to use too many different apps or platforms.
  4. Connect new content to old content and give examples.
  5. Limit the amount of new information in one session.

  8. Check students’ completion of assignments, periodically.
  9. Communicate with teachers via email and Zoom.
