Creating a conducive learning environment at home

In light of recent events, children’s education has been moved from their classrooms to their homes. With online classes becoming the new norm, children, parents and teachers are trying new techniques to make the most of it. In such times, your role as a teacher involves helping parents and students create a conducive learning environment at home. 


Here are some steps you can implement in class as well as share with parents to help the child make the best of online classes: 


Parents and Teachers:


  • To best collaborate with parents, consider sending out helpful tips about your favorite strategies for an online classroom. Sharing tips about how you handle classes help place the child in a familiar environment at home. It will allow the child to concentrate better on the material.  


  • Having a designated area for learning or a small “class is now in session” banner near their space during class can go a long way in improving concentration. As teachers, you can also take short breaks to do fun activities to help make the sessions more personalised and lively. The more you know about a student’s interests and inclinations, the better you will be able to teach them. 


Teachers and Students:


  • Consider holding virtual gatherings and online PTA meetings. It will help the parents address any issues that they might be having in a safe space. 


  • You can send out the child’s best work to their parents once a week. Praising and displaying their work will encourage them to work harder. 


The right insights into a child’s educational journey can be a game-changer in the virtual classroom and enhance parent-teacher collaboration.
