A classroom at home. In a perfect world, that’s what every child has with online learning. Circumstances relating to a lack of space, lack of funds, or the type of home setting a child is living with, the basic idea of a quiet, focused classroom in the privacy of one’s home is unachievable.
…well, not entirely. Here is a quick how-to guide on how anyone can optimize their home for online learning.
Eat breakfast. It sounds simple. It is simple, actually. The truth is by eating breakfast, you wake yourself up. The body gets some sugars and carbs, and it’s ready to face the day. Without it, sleepiness and being sluggish are the reality. Before getting set up in the room you’re using for online learning, ensure that person’s fed.
Commit To It
Just like at school, online learning has a schedule. A student or parent has to commit to it. Classrooms aren’t meant to be relaxing yet a family home is. To turn a ‘home’ into a learning environment, one must be serious about showing up on time to their lessons and ready to concentrate on the task at hand.
Have A Designated Study Desk or Study Area
Set up a study-from-home office area. Ideally, it won’t be in your bedroom. It will be somewhat quiet and somewhere you know you have your best chance at focusing. Optimize your home school online learning area with study accessories and the sorts of things you need to feel prepared for your day.
Take Breaks, De-Stress And Eat
It’s easy to be excited about the day when you first get to studying. Four hours later though, tiredness sets in and you may be struggling to keep up. You’ve got to provide your mind with everything it needs to concentrate. Be sure to take breaks. Eat throughout the day. Minimize stress.
Put your phone away. Let others in the home know you’re studying now and not to interrupt. Concentration is easier when one makes the effort to eliminate distractions. This isn’t easy for everyone. Sometimes, we don’t have an online learning study office at home. Even if you don’t have this luxury, eliminate any and all distractions you can.
Create A Routine
Whether you know it or not, going to work or going to school is a routine. You get dressed, travel, arrive, set up, and off you go. With online learning, it’s as easy as rolling out of bed and immediately you’re plugged into the classroom. Heck, you don’t even have to get out of bed. That’s not an optimized way to do things. Create a schedule and a routine for your mornings. Stick with it.
