With over 60 quality courses to choose
Educator.com makes it easy to incorporate technology into
your teen's (or family's) education. In fact, Educator.com offers the
following advice in regards to doing so--
1. Make The Facts Real
Simply memorizing information is very
boring and less likely to stick in your child's (or your) mind. Making
the facts real by using real world examples can demonstrate how subjects
like math and science are important and exciting outside of the
classroom. Fractions are a whole lot more interesting when used to bake
chocolate chip cookies.
Many Middle School Science classes use
the fun soda and Mentos experiment.
Educator.com has engaging,
middle school lessons on
Chemistry, which can help give
background information on the chemical reactions at work in this
2. Encourage A Multimodal Approach To
Encourage your student to experience
different ways of interacting with technology. Most laptops and tablets
feature video recording, cameras, and styluses, which make learning more
hands-on. Encourage your child to be creative with these types of tools
and promote a space where your student feels empowered by the device,
rather than a passive consumer of information. This approach can keep
kids focused while making the lessons more interesting and fun.
3. Let Your Kids Own Technology
Giving students their own technology
opens up opportunities for kids to really take ownership of their own
educations and to be a part of the process. Even small kids can own and
learn from toy laptops! Look for ones that are made for children and/or
offer some sort of waterproof case. Then, when they graduate to the real
thing, they'll be ready.
4. Make Self-Paced Learning Easy
Everyone learns at their own pace and in
their own way. Some students need more structured assignments and
projects, while others do best when their creative energy is set free.
Technology allows parents to provide the right amount of individualized
support, and make changes when necessary.
Educator.com offers many middle
school and high school courses that allow students to learn at their own
pace. Some courses are academic in nature, others, such as
Garage Band, are more
entertaining. ALL are educational!
5. Make Technology Safe
The interesting thing about children is
that when left on their own, they can independently explore, discover,
and make learning more exciting for themselves. However, teaching them
about Internet safety early will prepare them to make their own
decisions about Internet usage in the future. It's important to educate
them about Internet safety, and use parental controls as well. When
considering different devices, look for built-in safety tools in
computers that allow you to approve certain sites and content. Safety
software allows your child to have the freedom to learn and explore, and
for you to have peace of mind.
