Get Your Kids Back On Track: The Benefits of Temporary Remote Learning

Homeschooling is not for everyone. In fact, just about 3% of school-age children are homeschooled, according to the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES).

Homeschooling presents a number of challenges. That does not change, even in times of national and global uncertainty, like quarantine. In fact, recent events may increase the obstacles facing parents teaching children at home.

Thankfully, temporary virtual or remote learning activities are available to provide structure and ease the burden on already stressed parents.

Here are just some of the benefits of a remote learning private school in Miami during these times.

Structure And Time Management

With virtual school Miami residents can ensure their children have a regular schedule until they are able to attend physical classes in the nearby area. Even weeks into quarantine, parents are juggling quite a bit--work, household tasks, childcare, and, to a certain degree, their children's education. This overwhelming schedule makes it difficult to maintain structure, especially for their kids.

Routine during quarantine is especially important. Without it, children may have difficulty focusing and completing tasks. Remote learning helps children stay on schedule, stay busy, and keep learning to his or her full potential.

Remote Learning Frees Up Parents' Time

By opting into virtual school Miami parents reestablish a schedule for their child. Staff plan lessons and virtual classroom time for you, mitigating worries about how to help your quarantined kid learn at home. That frees parents up to focus on work. While young children--especially toddlers--are bound to make an appearance on Zoom conference calls at some point, keeping them on-task reduces the likelihood of continuous interruptions.

With remote learning, parents spend less time planning lessons and working out the logistics of school time. Plus, teachers provide feedback and help with assignments and homework via the web, relieving some of the pressure on parents to do it.

Interaction With Teachers And Classmates

Social interaction is an important part of child development. Plus, in people of all ages, socializing is essential for maintaining mental health.

By regularly interacting with children their age, kids learn problem-solving, sharing, and boundary setting. During quarantine, children--and young kids in particular--are at risk for delayed development of these skills. Getting back into the classroom, even a virtual or remote learning one for the time being, can help tremendously. While it is not a perfect substitute for in-person interaction, regularly talking to classmates and going over assignments with peers reinforces lessons and helps develop critical communication skills.

Similarly, interaction is not just important for your child's development--it's important for his or her mental health, too! Socializing plays a large role in brain development, curbs loneliness, and prevents mental health issues, like anxiety and depression, from developing over time.

Improved Computer And Digital Skills

Another benefit of virtual school Miami students can enjoy is the requirement to regularly use and hone their computer and digital skills. Using the internet to interact with teachers and classmates during quarantine teaches kids essential computer skills that will follow them and benefit them throughout their lives. Society is increasingly going digital. Kids knowing these skills will only help. Plus, children enrolled in virtual school are learning digital skills in a constructive manner--not by spending too much time on their iPad or smartphone.

The quarantine will not last forever. Until it is over, however, it is important for parents to have adequate resources to teach their children. That is where remote schooling comes in. Free up more time to work. Encourage safe socializing via web and virtual classroom discussions. Enroll children in remote learning options for the time being to ensure that they continue learning to their fullest potential.
