Online learning is a great way to improve your skills and learn something new, all while from the comforts of your own home. Here are 10 teams that will help you or your child navigate your way through virtual learning.
1. Create Or Find A Dedicated Work Space
Having a spot that you can remove yourself from distractions and get you into the mindset of learning is key for success for online classes. Many things within your household can distract you, this will help keep you on track and focused on the task at hand.
A printer or scanner can come in handy for printing off the presentation, practice sheets, class notes, saving documents to your computer and much more. If you or your child is a visual or hands-on learner this is great as it gives you the option of having something physical in front of you.
5. Noise Cancelling Head Phones
Headphones are a great idea for online classes as it helps you fully immerse into the virtual classroom. With noise-cancelling it removes the distractions of your household and allowing you to hear the teacher or instructor better.
6. Blue Light Glasses
Staring at a screen for a long time can be hard on your eyes and can cause headaches or a hard time focusing afterwards. This is where blue light glasses come in handy, these reduce the about of blue light reaching your eyes and blocks the light through the glasses. You can buy these online or get them from an eyeglasses store.
10. Your Camera Or Other Learning Tools
Learning tools are something to keep near your desk, as it gives the student great hands-on practice. As for our virtual classes we suggest keeping your camera close by as we cover functions and practise using them throughout the class.
