How to Organize Students Home Education Process?
Learning from home isn’t always easy; being in a such a comforting and familiar environment can make it hard for you to motivate yourself, and being surrounded by all your personal belongings all day can be a huge distraction all the time. Not to mention the lack of other people can make it harder to learn, not having a teacher on hand to answers questions can be frustrating, and spending more time alone than you’re used to can be disheartening. Overall, home education is undoubtedly more challenging, however, there are a few steps you can take to make it better for you – check out our best apps and tips for students’ home education to help you out.
1. Time Management
Planning is key to most things in life, and doing well with home education is no exception. If you manage your time well, follow a strict daily schedule, plan your upcoming classes, and use to time wisely in order to stay on top of your work load, then you’ll do so much better while you’re learning from home. If you’re not good at time management and need help, use an app like Timely, Boosted, or Smarter Time.
2. Apps to Learn Foreign Languages
Learning foreign languages is a big part of your education, but not having the school environment can make them a lot more difficult to learn. However, an app like Duolingo can help you learn new words everyday, and Interpals can connect you to users all over the world where you can practice your new language with them.
3. Study Remotely with Classmates
Having a study group online isn’t much different from having a study group in person, in fact, once you get used to the applications, you’ll find that they are exactly the same and you learn just as well with the online study groups – don’t forget to include your relevant teacher if necessary. Study groups are common and helpful to learning, not to mention it can provide you with some much needed social interaction to break up the extra time you’re spending alone during your home education.
4. Find Tutors Online
To help with your education further, and ensure that you won’t fall behind while learning from home, it’s a good idea to hire online tutors. You can find online tutors to suit any budget, topic, or learning requirement, from various apps including the Khan Academy or Preply. However, once you find a tutor, you will want to know more about them before you begin so you know you’ve made the right choice.
For this, use Spokeo – Spokeo is a reverse number lookup tool that provides you with a whole host of data about the person you are searching for including social media profiles and other important information. Spokeo could help you know a lot about anyone from a quick search using the phone number search or email search feature.
5. Use Audext to Transcribe Your Online Lectures
Transcribing lectures can feel so frustrating because of how much time the process takes, there are much better things you could be doing with your time and spending time transcribing, no matter how necessary, isn’t going to help you learn faster. So, use a transcription app such as Audext to do the work for you! Save hours of time and use that saved time to focus on other areas of your work.
6. Listen to Audio Books
Audio books are so fantastic because they are a great education tool and require basically no effort on your part, just sit back and relax after you pop your audio book on. You don’t have to pay either as you can use apps like Audible or Librivox to find great content for free. These books will help you in class, and you’ll learn a lot of useful things without even having to move.
Home education definitely takes some getting used to, and it’s normal to feel like you aren’t always having a good time, however, by taking a few simple steps such as creating Skype groups, organizing your schedule, and using Spokeo to find the best teachers, your home education can be the best experience possible.
