Tips for students learning at home
It can be helpful to keep to a schedule and your family can help with that. This way you have a balance and everyone in the house is taken care of. By setting aside the same time each day you can stay on-track and we all need rest, too, so if your family decides to do something different altogether, that is fine too.
Find a good work space.
Find a quiet place where you won’t be distracted. It can be helpful to sit near someone else who is working in a focussed way. If you have siblings, agree who can access technology when, before everyone starts their day.
Check for messages from your teacher.
Start your day by checking your email, seesaw, google classroom, etc. Try not to get overwhelmed by emails and messages. Switch off any automatic notifications like the incoming email bing that might distract you.
Make time for quiet and reflection.
Everyone needs down time to reflect and relax. This lockdown may be difficult in unexpected ways. Talk to someone if you are feeling overwhelmed.
Exercise not only makes you healthier, it can make you happier and help you concentrate. Put time aside each day to move around.
Use Tech as a Tool - don’t spend your whole day in front of a device
It’s easy to get distracted by games or YouTube. Make sure to use it as a tool, not just a source of entertainment.
Remember to be kind when you chat or post anything.
Take extra care to be kind and respectful on chat and commenting. On digital platforms it is difficult for others to read your tone, and comments and posts made in the heat of the moment live for far longer than words spoken in person. If you find yourself in a challenging situation, reach out to a trusted adult for help. Be kind and caring.
