Teach the basics in the Covid Crisis

COVID Crisis parents only need focus on teaching the basics as they struggle with their new roles as teachers in their own homes.

As parents struggle to balance jobs, working from home and their newly acquired role of home schooling, Sarah Mitchell, the NSW Education Minister has urged parents not to expect too much from themselves.

In an article in The Sydney Morning Herald of 1st April 2020 by Jordan Baker, she is quoted as saying, “Sometimes you will only complete a small part of the day’s plan, and that’s OK. For primary aged students literacy and numeracy are key focus areas.”

At EdAlive we understand that this focus on the basics is so true. But for many time-poor parents even this narrow focus is still challenging. Our online learning websites can make the task of engaging children in the home context much easier for parents.

The EdAlive Central websites use advanced Adaptive Learning systems to automatically optimise the maths and literacy content for each child. They engage the students through fun and progress them in their work with little or no teacher or parent input. Research shows the students using an EdAlive Adaptive Learning system can make 12 months of progress in as little as 10 weeks.

During this COVID-19 Crisis parents can simply have their children sign into the chosen EdAlive Central website and then supervise them to ensure that they are on task and the EdAlive systems will take care of the rest. Kids have so much fun they don’t even know that they are learning.

The growing range of EdAlive Central online learning websites is comprised of: Typing Tournament OnlineMaths Invaders OnlineWords Rock OnlineBaggin’ the Dragon Maths Online and Volcanic Panic Reading Online. The EdAlive Central web sites are used in thousands of Australian schools and are directly linked to the Australian curriculum.

EdAlive is an Australian owned family business located in Armidale NSW and has been serving parents and teachers and helping to educate Australian students since 1986.
