Is online learning tough for your child or student?
Have you been facing issues where students are reluctant to log on to their classes? Do they lose focus during lessons or get fatigued quickly? You are not alone. One of the main issues most parents and educators are facing is the lack of motivation for online learning – which has no immediate, straightforward solution.
While parents and teachers lament the need to return to physical classes, it is detrimental to wait until things return to normal. Students need to maintain some form of learning to keep themselves mentally active, and interactions in class can provide some fulfilment to their social needs.
What do we do?
Improving the online learning experience is a mission that requires both parents and teachers to work in tandem. Join us on 5 February for an online talk and discussion with parents and teachers to address the issues. We’ll be sharing pointers, tips and insights to help tackle the obstacles together.
Why join us?
PrepWorks has been a pioneer in online small group classes since March 2020 under PrepWorks Academy. We’ve been working with our teachers to help create an engaging and wholesome environment that induces learning and discussion using methods adopted from Developing Strategies for Online Teaching and Learning from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
What we’ve noticed is that with the right approach, students are often ready to open up and learn if they are intrinsically motivated and feel comfortable enough to do so. Therefore, we want your insights and opinions to help us improve, and will be sharing what worked for us to help you too!
This talk is suitable for parents and teachers who are interested in improving the online learning experience for kids.
