A well-organized, properly prepared learning space is the foundation of a productive school experience and essential for establishing the good habits and effective mindset your student needs to excel. The diagram below features some of the more common items you’ll find in a successful student’s learning space.
A clock is necessary for knowing when to start and end the day, to pause for occasional breaks, and to track time throughout the day.
A family calendar is an invaluable tool for keeping track of days, dates and upcoming events, like holidays, vacations, and appointments.
Pens, pencils, and paper are still a great alternative to the computer for working through problems and note-taking for courses or during a LiveLesson® session.
A printer is useful to print school and course documents for record keeping.
Notebook and Folders:
Notebooks and folders, whether online or offline, are helpful for keeping information collected and
organized by subject.
Webcam and Headset:
A headset and optional webcam must be operational so your student can communicate effectively during LiveLesson® sessions.
A telephone is a key communication tool throughout the school year to participate in regular progress calls with teachers and to contact school staff.
A computer is the backbone of a virtual learning experience. Your student will use this tool to access online lessons, complete and submit coursework, evaluate his or her progress, and communicate with other students, teachers, and other school-based staff.
