The world around us is going digital, it’s no surprise that parenting has too! That’s right, 2018 has brought with it the need to be a tech-savvy digital parent, especially when it comes to education.
1. PCs Make Research Faster
Quality assignments are backed by quality research! With PC tools such as Google Search, Google Scholar and Kiddle, researching is not only faster but easier too! Google Scholar is particularly useful since it provides reliable information in the form of research papers, reports and scholarly articles on almost every topic.
2. PCs Inspire Your Child To Begin
Often, children procrastinate and waste time instead of starting to do homework. The major cause of this delay is lack of direction. Websites like Templatelab provide readily available templates for essays, giving your children a reliable starting point.
3. PCs Help To Mix Things Up
There are a variety of formats available - Word, PPT, Excel, video etc on a PC so your child has the opportunity to develop different skills. While Word is great for essays and Excel for computation, PPT helps to develop your child’s presentation skills.
4. PCs Keep Everything Organised
A PC enables your child to store everything in one place with search being quick and simple. Resources such as Calendar, Evernote and One Note help to collate everything from documents, websites, charts etc. - so you don’t have to go on a scavenger hunt when it’s exam time.
5. PCs Provide Subject-specific Guides
From word pronunciations to complex scientific theories, there’s something for every subject - you and your child have to just search for the right PC resources. YouTube is a great place to look for educational videos in an easy-to-understand format.
6. PCs Motivate Your Child To Do Better
PCs are also useful to incentivise your children to complete their homework for the day. Allowing your child an hour on the PC to study with an additional fifteen minutes to play games, ensures your child is highly motivated to do all homework in that one hour without being distracted.
The right tools and resources, make homework an activity to unlock your child’s learning potential from an early age. Happy Homework!
