Welcome to PFE – PARENTING FOR EDUCATION
Education outside of the classroom occurred unexpectedly for many parents over the past few months. Thankfully, school systems acted quickly to connect students to their teachers, although they were physically separated. Computers and virtual learning assumed a role previously unheard. We strongly support and encourage work provided by schools for our children. For us, our role remains the same. We exist to serve school dominated learning as well as home-based learning. Goals of PARENTING FOR EDUCATION help parents in finding ways to supplement classroom learning on a different scale.
For this edition of PFE—PARENTING FOR EDUCATION, we offer an article that looks at the circular nature of learning; we offer a simple science activity useful for ages 5-years-old and older; we offer a capsulized research report that looks at computer screen time for young learners; and we offer a learning tip for the adolescent years or younger.
As you visit
Our PFE-PARENTING FOR EDUCATION website, I hope you will find at least one idea that you can use right away. Everything we offer or share comes with the understanding that learning for the seven year-old may be a necessary learning activity for a twelve year-old. Don’t be afraid to invite older learners to try something possibly designed for younger children. Perhaps this will be one of the assets of becoming your child’s teacher during this COVID-19 Pandemic—you will get to know your child’s strengths and weaknesses in knowledge and abilities.
I sincerely hope you will enjoy your time with your children during this unfortunate period in our world’s history, for this is a great time for unique parent-child bonding.
Thanks to Lisa Ryan of Stellar Searches for her excellent work in tracking down research on screen time for young learners.
