Dr. Erin Schulte, coordinator of counseling and character education for Parkway, provided the following tips to help students be successful with virtual learning:
Stick to a schedule: Make sure you have identified times for certain tasks and stick to it!
Participate live if possible: Parkway is offering live times with teachers, so try to make that time work rather than catching the video later.
Actively participate in any way you can: If you are live, join in the discussions and comment on chat boards.
Set up a designated workspace for students: Do not tune in from bed. Have a workstation, a desk, etc.
Stay patient: There might be a learning curve with certain aspects of technology. Stay patient and be persistent.
Be open to trying new ways of doing things: School does not look how it normally looks. Try to see that there are still some good things about it and – in some cases – maybe it can even be better than it was before all of this.
