Keys to successful remote learning


Here are 8 Tips for Remote Learning Success




Take Up Bedtime Review

Rather than catching up Facebook or Instagram, take time to review your study notes about an upcoming test. Recent studies have shown that our brains are good at retaining information we take in just before resting.

Create A Study Schedule

Like eating breakfast or working out at the same time, students who create a routine and have the discipline to stick to it are more productive than those who don’t.

Connect With Other Focused Students

No matter the facet of life, focused and successful people inspire those they’re around. Find a study buddy whose work ethic you admire and set up an online review session with them.

Clear Your Space

While it may seem counterintuitive to take extra time to clean your room or office before settling down to study, a study by Princeton University found that people who keep their spaces clean are able to process information and focus better.

Shut Off Your Mobile Phone

When you sit down to do your schoolwork, put your phone on silence and set ‘do not disturb’ messages on any online messaging services. This will help keep you from getting side-tracked.

Take Your Own Notes

Use your Interactive Notebook and take notes and complete activities in the same way you would if you were in class. Remember to write your summary.

Ask For Help

If you’re studying and realise you don’t understand a concept or theory, reach out to your teacher or classmates as soon as possible for clarification rather than trying to go it on your own.

Stay Mentally And Physically Healthy

You are likely to spend more time at your computers than you would normally do at school.  It is therefore imperative that you take breaks, get the recommended amount of sleep, and eat foods that nourish your body.
