eLearning Tips

elearning
  • Designate a Learning Space

    • Instead of trying to recreate school at home, create an environment that encourages your child to develop a new learning style and allows them to be successful in an eLearning environment.

    • Focus on minimizing distractions (noise, too many supplies, etc.).

    • Create a comfortable space that encourages your child to want to extend learning. When learning something challenging, comfort matters!

    Develop a Routine

    • Help your child create a balanced schedule that fits his or her and the family's needs. Reflect with your child and make adjustments to the schedule as needed.

    • Review the lesson plans/ECHO with your child and help them make a plan for pacing their learning. Plan more time for topics that are challenging. Reach out to your teacher for additional help if needed.

    • Movement and brain breaks are essential. Intentionally plan for breaks throughout the day

    Set Expectations

    • Discuss behavior expectations for your child's learning time. Consider any expectations needed to fulfill the parent's work/personal/learning facilitator responsibilities.

    • Encourage your child to advocate for his or her needs and communicate with the teacher when necessary.

    • At the end of the day, review the accomplishments and celebrate what went well. If needed, create a checklist for the following day.

    Use Your Resources

    • Reference the eLearning lesson plans communicated by your child's teacher.

    • Visit the Leadership Prep eLearning Resources link on the website for support with digital tools.

    • Teachers are available for assistance during daily office hours.

    • Visit lpsfrisco.com for the most up-to-date information.

    Be Flexible

    • eLearning is designed so that parents/guardians offer support to the learning structure and reinforce learning goals, not serve as the homeschooler.

    • Your child is used to working independently without 1:1 attention from the teacher at all times. A good balance is to remain close to assist them in staying on task, but not feel guilty about allowing them to complete work on their own.

    Celebrate

    • Discuss the challenges you and your child face and celebrate the achievements.

    • This opportunity will allow your child to become a more resilient learner. Embrace the growth mindset.

    • When the day is done, switch your focus to home: rest and recharge.
