Understanding The Digital Divide In Education
In a world where access to technology is a part of daily learning, students who don’t have access to the internet or the devices they need to access online lessons or assignments experience a digital gap dividing them from the equal opportunities afforded their peers. This gap has come to be known as “the digital divide.” Hardware such as mobile devices, televisions,. PCs, laptops, tablets, or access to the internet all either connect your student to the world of learning or separate them from it.
Help! My Child Has Fallen Behind In School
In spring of 2021, a year after the pandemic affected schooling in the U.S., NWEA (Northwest Evaluation Association) used data from 8 million students and found that reading scores had fallen 3 to 6 percentile points and math scores had fallen 8-12 points. NWEA is a non-profit organization that creates testing and then uses the data from that testing to provide insight to districts, teachers, and other stakeholders so that they can better understand their student’s areas of growth and decline.
Teaching Self-Care To Students At Online Schools
With online learning helping students retain between 25% to 60% more information than traditional learning, according to The Research Institute of America, it’s no wonder that so many students are sticking with or transferring to online learning. Also not surprising is the fact that the global e-learning market is anticipated to be faced with an annual developing growth rate of 16%.
What About Physical Education For Online Students?
We all know that physical activity helps you focus, boosts your mood, and sets you up for a healthier, happier life. If your kids are in an online academic program like the ones offered through Excel Middle and High School, although they might take a health and fitness class, they might not be required to actually perform any exercises that get them up and moving. The last thing you want is your child living as a potato day and night! You have options for supplementing their current physical education though, and there are plenty of reasons to encourage your children to remain active.
Getting A Letter Of Recommendation From An Online School
If you’re headed to college soon, then you’re probably preparing all your important documents, writing the dreaded college essays, and gathering letters of recommendations from trusted adults. But what about if you’re an online student and interact minimally with your instructors? At Excel High School, we work with students like you year round, and our experience has led us to some important tips to share with online students wondering about how to go about asking for a letter of recommendation from their teachers.
Social Media Tips For Online Students
Both kids and teens spend a large amount of time on social media. In fact, a 2019 Common Sense Media survey says that social media accounts for between 5 to 7 ½ hours of teens’ time every day. You might say No Way! But if you think about how many times each day you glance down on your phone to see, react to, and post on social media, you might actually have to admit that the time can add up. Not to mention that chunk of time you spend scrolling before bed or during a break from working on class work. How do you make sure that your social media profile is not just secure but is representing you in the most positive light?

What do you do now?
