Do you ever get overwhelmed by all the tech choices out there? Do you use technology in your homeschool? I always considered us “low-tech” generally speaking — that is until I really sat down to think about it. Then I realized how much we rely on online resources, digital curriculum, and our Kindle Fire tablets to learn on a near-daily basis. These things crept into our homeschool so gradually that I didn’t even realize it!
I love real books, but I also read ebooks on a regular basis. I love to write with pen and paper, but I also love to blog. My girls love to curl up with good books, but they also like interactive storybooks on the Kindle. My oldest daughter loves to read and write, but she also thoroughly enjoys coding and creating digital art. See what I mean?
If you have a similar experience and would like to know how to homeschool high-tech kids even if you’re a bit tech-challenged yourself, I hope you’ll take a few minutes to read my guest post over at Techie Homeschool Mom: How to Homeschool High-Tech Kids When You’re a Tech-Challenged Mom
Here’s an excerpt from that post:
Remember that just because you may feel tech-challenged, it doesn’t mean that you can’t find exactly the courses and resources your high-tech kids need to succeed with their studies. Part of homeschooling is knowing when you should outsource certain subjects to give your kids the best educational experience tailored to their individual needs.
My best advice for how to homeschool high-tech kids when you’re a tech-challenged mom is this: Don’t let your tech-challenged fears hold you back from providing the opportunities your high-tech kids need to pursue their interests and talents.
Sometimes homeschooling means learning right alongside your kids. It’s a great skill to be flexible and willing to try new things for the sake of your child’s education. Plus it can be really fun!
So tell me, what technology do you use in your homeschool?
