By BBN Staff: Around the world, students, parents and educators are adapting to virtual and distance learning.
In Belize, face to face classes were suspended in March 2020.
Since then, educators and parents have found new ways for learning to continue.
The Washington Post has offered several strategies for parents to cope with the additional role of being teacher at home.
Families around the world are transitioning into virtual learning and several parents have opted to teach their children themselves.
The first strategy is for parents to identify high-priority classes or academic subjects and create realistic working blocks.
For example if the child struggles with reading, focus on that class.
Another strategy is to treat all plans as a working draft, remain flexible with children and keep a rotating schedule. Make the work-station welcoming and fun for the child.
Parents are also encouraged to “ go with what works.” This will help parents and students cope with the stress of remote learning.
Parents are advised to add non-screen activities. Many parents worry about excessive screen use. Adding non-screen time also teaches the child to be strategic about how they plan their day.
Parents can partner with their child’s teacher and engaging in online activities.
Another strategy is to focus less on standard assessments and more on supporting their child.
