Here are some tips for you to increase your productivity and efficiency in your Online Education and training. (specially curated for school students)
- Position that keeps you alert: Regardless of how tempted you may feel to attend your classes in bed, you should choose a position and locations that helps you stay alert and attentive throughout the class. Ideally you should sit on a chair that helps you maintain an upright position. The right posture saves your back and shoulders, besides keeping you wide awake.
- No distraction mode ON: Put all your notifications on silent! A traditional classroom doesn’t allow the usage of mobile or any kind of distraction. The same shall be applicable for the Virtual Classroom as well. Whether in class or studying, impose a limit on your distractions and stay focused on learning.
- Set a goal: Attending a class is only half the battle. Reading and revising the class should be a daily habit so as to keep up with the pace of classroom. Set a daily goal and also weekly goals for yourself. You can also use a planner/scheduler and set reminders and alarms to assist you in achieving your goals.
- Take handwritten notes: Even though a Digital Classroom Solution gives you the liberty of taking notes on the computer itself, it is highly recommended that you take handwritten notes! All our school life, we are trained to write down our notes and we are better accustomed with that. Furthermore, research shows that writing, instead of typing, helps you remember the information better! Use abbreviations and short phrases to maintain your pace.
- Motivation is the key: Learning with Virtual Classroom Solutions can prove to be taxing at times; however, you have to find what motivates you and keep going! Remember, each class you take will help you achieve your goals in the longer run. Prepare yourself well before each class, quiz, assignment, presentation, activity, etc so that you’re fully attentive and interested in the classroom.
Juana Virtual Classroom has been carefully crafted for all your learning needs; assignments, assessments, gradings, quizzes – everything at one place. Online education in India is going through major changes and we are making sure that our students and teachers can sail through smoothly in these tough times.
