How To Motivate Your Kids To Study With The Help Of A PC

Exam week is a month away. The timetable has arrived and you’re worried how you are going to get your child to sit in one place to study. The PC is here to help with studying but can it motivate children to study too?

 

1. Choose How To Study A Particular Topic

Children feel excited about studying when they have a chance to choose how to study. [1] This sense of control enables children to learn at their own pace and makes them feel personally responsible for their own education. Videos, games, interactive quizzes, mind mapping — with the help of the PC, all are within reach for your child to explore.

2. Let Them Know Where They Stand

Nothing is more motivating than the proof of doing well. A mix of solving practice papers, filling out worksheets, taking quizzes [2] and online tests help your child know exactly where they stand. This validation makes your child more confident for the actual exam and also helps them to discover any gaps in knowledge.

3. Take A PC Break!

No matter how vast the portion is, rest is essential to improve your child’s concentration level. You can make it rewarding with games [3] that maintain a fine balance between being entertaining and educational. Just ensure it’s scheduled into the study timetable keeping in mind the time it takes to complete a chapter and tuitions, sports etc.

4. The Desk Of Their Dreams

Take in your child’s inputs to create the desk of their dreams. Simple things such as their favourite toy, superhero action figures, posters or a screensaver of their choice on the PC can make a real difference as the desk feels less like school and more personal. You can also consider an AIO (All in One) PC to keep your child’s desk clutter-free.

Ultimately, the only way to get ahead with studying is to get started. Only parents know what exactly motivates their child. It can be anything – full marks, top rank in class, what they want to be when they grow up, genuine love for a subject, extra-curricular activities and so on.

Let the PC lead the way as a motivational tool for your child’s success.
