Community & teaching practice
By Robert Rushford – rushford matheson advisory
The first place where a child starts learning is home. In the early age, children spend most of their time with parents and learn from them. So, as parents, it’s your duty to look into the future of your kid.
Involving parents in the learning experience is also important due to the fact that learning does not start and end with the school hours, as it is an ongoing process in student’s life. If the promotion of technology begins in early childhood, the kids gradually will get used to finding their own ways of exploring and learning. This is where parents have an important role in guiding the kid for the right use of technology in this digital age.
Spend more time with children, encourage them, be in touch with their school management and teachers, assist them in getting their homework done and provide them a comfortable learning environment; you all must know this but there are many technological resources which help you in creating a beautiful future for your child’s education.
In this article, we provide you with the list of some great educational blogs. Keep reading.
