Online Learning For Children: 5 things you need to know!

Online learning is one of the key aspects of education today, and many platforms saw a rise in enrolled students during the Pandemic. However, as we all try to return to our normal lives, many of us have come to realize the immense value online courses bring to our children. Here are some things you definitely need to know about online learning.

1. It’s for everyone:

While we mainly attribute online learning for a STEM course to primarily teenagers or older children, the younger children will benefit the most. Online learning has come a long way to make sure even 4–5-year-olds are able to keep up with the curriculum.

2. It’s Designed to be easy:

Many would think that a course needs to be difficult if you want a child to learn something. However, don’t let them fool you! Challenges are a part of any course, but a good curriculum minimizes the challenges involved in the actual learning process. In online learning at DIYA, this is achieved with learning tools designed for children named Scratch and Scratch Junior. This language was designed by experts at MIT in order to help children easily pick up the basics of coding algorithms while helping them develop thought processes that will allow them to grow further in the future!

3. The timings are very flexible:

While conventional education would have students stick to a routine, it doesn’t take into account their readiness for the next course or even their availability. Of course, traditional schooling had a schedule and a place of study and is a system that does not take into account the accessibility provided by the internet and smart technology.

4. More options

It’s always the same subjects and most schools have not kept their curriculum abreast with modern technological developments. However, online platforms bring forth these developments right from the get-go. Online learning platforms allow for the parent and the child to choose what they wish to learn. Or if you and your child have decided that a current course is not a good fit, it is easy to initiate a discussion that can actually help your child learn what they really want.

5. They’ll learn something they can actually use in the future!

Many of us have looked at our old school curriculum while scratching our heads “Now why did I need to learn this? I definitely can’t think of any of my friends who had to use what we learned either.” Well, that’s one thing children in the future will definitely not need to say! An acceptable online learning platform won’t just give children knowledge, but rather also provides children with international certification upon completion of the same.
