Top 5 Remote Learning Websites
At this difficult time we recognise that parents may feel out of their depth when it comes to managing their children’s learning at home. Please remember:
- You can afford to take the time to settle your children before starting school work. Stressed brains don’t learn effectively.
- Communicate with your children constantly about what is working and what isn’t. Adjust as necessary. Remote learning won’t work perfectly all the time. Very little does!
- Have fun with learning. This may be a once-in-a-lifetime experience for you and your children. Enjoy it.
