Create a perfect virtual learning space at home


While we all adapt to the “new normal”, one of the challenges that parents face is to create a good virtual learning environment at home for their kids. Most schools have become “Zoom Schools” and your young ones need a good learning environment at home. 

Here is a list of tips on how you can create a good learning environment so that your kids can focus on their learning. 

Pick the right place in your home 

First and foremost, figure out how much space your child needs based on their school workload. Take a walk around the house and find a place(s) that can be easily accessible and decluttered. You don’t necessarily need to clear out a whole room, one small corner where you can fit a desk with a computer, a tablet, etc with internet access should be good enough. 

Since you are creating a learning space, make sure the space you pick is as distraction-free as possible, considering it is your home and not school. Keep the space flexible and allow your child to experiment with different places around the house like the kitchen table, couch, family room, or anything that may help them get the work done. 

Assemble the desk according to your child’s needs

Talk to your child about what kind of desk they prefer, and make sure you are able to accommodate their needs as much as possible for example if your child has any specific needs for the height of the table and chair or any specific needs with light and brightness. 

As mentioned before, let your child experiment and help them with their needs in all different work locations they might want to try out. Having a fixed place is great but you have to understand that it’s tedious to sit in one place for a long period of time. Normally, they get to move around in school with breaks and physical activities which they’re probably missing out at home. 

Pick a comfortable chair 

When creating the official “school workspace” for your child, make sure you get a comfortable and adjustable chair for their desk. They may be sitting at the same place for a prolonged period of time. Sometimes, adjusting the height of the chair according to their mood also helps. To add additional comfort, you can add in some pillows for support. If their feet are dangling from the chair, you might want to add a footrest or a box to support their legs. 

Help your child stay organized 

Whether your child is in elementary school, middle school, or high school, they have a lot of different subjects to keep track of it. Help them stay organized with all their subjects by having a bookshelf and binders with markers on them separating each subject. This will not only help them with their studies but also help them learn to stay organized at an early age.  

Help them display their schedule and school work 

Studies show that children with a set routine do better in school. You can buy a big whiteboard to display their class schedule and their homework deadlines. This will help them know what they are expected to get done on a specific day. You can also include time for breaks and lunch/dinner in their schedule to make sure they are staying healthy. 

Make it personal to their preferences 

Personalizing a learning space to your child’s preferences will make them fall in love with the place and they will be able to connect with the place personally. Add in some of their favorite anime characters or their favorite colors so they can actually call that learning space their “own learning space”
