WITH home-based learning (PdPR) in progress, giving kids an effective homeschooling experience is on the top of every parent’s mind.
The disruption in educational schedules and environments can be distracting for kids and not all home environments are suitable for studying.
Thankfully, the University of Washington listed tips that you as a parent can follow, which may help your kids to study well at home.
The first step is to make sure your child has a study routine beyond online classes. This lays the foundation for their self-discipline and helps them stay focused and structured.
Mark out a conducive space as a study area, which will assist in maintaining your child’s focus as they are studying.
Encourage your child to take notes during online classes. That way, fleeting on-screen information gets committed to memory once it’s been jotted down.
Try not to assign chores to your kid during study time as this will disrupt their concentration and routine.
And of course, keep their mind, body, and spirit healthy with hearty meals, plenty of exercise, and relaxing moments with family and friends via phone calls and video chats.
You can also work with your child to create a study plan that aims to maintain their focus and keep them on track of their progress with the rest of their mates.
One indispensable tool in laying the foundation for self-discipline is their laptop.
A laptop such as the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i can ensure kids stay connected with their teachers and classmates in a virtual classroom while learning and progressing in their studies.
However, the Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i is specially designed for students thanks to its built-in Smart Learning features that come with solutions that help students use this PC as a study tool.
Smart Learning supports a superior remote learning experience by addressing some digital challenges encountered during last year’s lockdown, especially when keeping younger students stay focused and motivated during online classes.
One of its functions, the Lenovo Aware, prompts reminders to sit back from the screen, straighten up or take a break to rest their eyes at certain times.
It detects the attention and sitting posture of the user through non-verbal body language, space, and eye contact, using the laptop’s built-in camera sensors.
The feature also tracks students’ progress with easy-to-understand generated reports that show the cumulative benchmarks of average PC usage, as well as digital well-being, so parents can keep pace with their children’s successes and areas for improvement.
Behind the IdeaPad’s sleek lines and premium design is a powerful 11th Generation Intel Core i7 processor that effortlessly cranks up productivity and provides a smoother online experience.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i also comes pre-installed with Microsoft Office Home and Student 2019 (worth RM529).
The laptop also comes with noise-cancelling technology, blocking out distracting background noises, while Q-Control boosts processor performance by increasing efficiency while keeping the machine quiet.
In addition to that, parents do not need to worry about any technological issues that they face. These laptops come with full tech support through Lenovo Premium Care.
The Lenovo Premium case gives users real-time solutions from trained technicians, 24-hour access to technical support, and advanced support for 365 days.
The Lenovo IdeaPad Slim 3i is available at Lenovo Exclusive Stores (LES) nationwide, and on official Lazada and Shopee stores starting from RM2,749 (recommended retail price).
