The adjustment from in-person to online coursework can be hard for some students and parents.
To help parents keep their students on track with their school work, Chicago-based educational tech company, Otus, is offering free access to their K-12 e-learning academy.
Otus' President Dr. Keith Westman also provided tips for parents on how to adjust kids to e-learning school work during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr.Westman said the goal is to keep kids active throughout the day.
- Tip #1 : Start Small (It's okay to start with two or three activities a day.)
- Tip #2 : Go old school (Kids can read anything, writing a letter to a family member, or create a show or play.)
- Tip #3 : Plan the day (Set expectations, schedule, consistency like kids experience in school.)
