Many families with students learning from home have discovered that the traditional school day schedule doesn’t always work when students are at the kitchen table instead of the classroom. But that’s not a bad thing by any means. Dr. Elizabeth Davis, education veteran and online learning instructional leader for Edmentum, talks to us about how we can take advantage of learning in the home environment and utilize the 30-minute chunks for effective instruction.
In this episode, David Cicero and Andrew Baxter discuss student mental health in the wake of COVID-19, along with best practices that you can use to support your students.
It’s not always easy to get your child to concentrate on what they are learning, or to teach them something in a way that really sticks. Turns out the key may have to do with developing executive functioning skills. Jen Perry, Edmentum’s learning designer for social-emotional learning, explains how executive functioning skills play in learning, and how to help your student sharpen and develop their skills to improve memory and impulse control.
In this episode, David Cicero and Dr. Troy Podell analyze the role of the teacher, examine how it is changing, and identify key skills that will be invaluable over the next 10 years.
Yelling is a typical human response when we feel frustrated or anxious, but every adult knows it’s not the best strategy when it comes to children. In this minisode, Jen Perry chats with us on why yelling doesn’t work, and offers some better strategies to deal with behavior management at home.
