Strengthen Your Family Through Biblical Homeschooling

Tag: Online School

What are my options to homeschool online? Years ago I would have blinked and given you a blank stare with the only options being the public school. Now we have a broad variety of options and families that have tried out everything from a full academy setting to a more class-by-class style.

You can homeschool your child utilizing online resources in a solid Christian manner online!

Live teachers, recorded sessions at your family/student’s pace, parent facilitated lessons, high quality high level education all of these options are at your fingertips. Literally! Homeschooling online has come of age and we get to reap the benefits of a variety of options.

Our community of families at Teach Them Diligently have been asked, “what do you recommend as a Online Homeschool academy choice.” We took all their suggestions and 39 other subjects of curriculum and put them in our FREE Homeschool Family Favorites Guide.

Here are the top 10 choices for Online Favorite Homeschool Academy

  1. Abeka Academy From the website- “Get the benefits of homeschooling — without the burden of doing everything yourself.”
  2. Bob Jones University Press Academy of Home Education From the website- “Video Lessons +Textbooks cover it all from teaching to testing. This option is perfect for busy parents or families with lots of kids learning at the same time.”
  3. Time 4 Learning From the website- “Award-winning, comprehensive curriculum allows parents to be in control of their child’s individual learning path.”

Online learning can be tailored to match your level of comfort with your child and screen time. Many online homeschooling options have built in timers you can use. On the parent side you will be able to see what your child is doing and how well they are doing. There are often several other things you can do such as look at time at task or how diligently your teen has been working (daily?). As the teacher parent adjust the schedule, timing, or whatever problem you see immediately because of fast accurate feedback and move on to be a success.

According to a 2017 report developed by Fetch, a mobile marketing agency, more than 40 percent of Americans say they are more impatient than they were five years ago.

It’s no surprise—with drivers and food deliveries alike arriving in 5-10 minutes, shows and movies available with the click of a button, and packages shipping from another corner of the world to our doorstep in 48 hours, patience is a skill we’re learning to use less by the minute…make that 30 seconds.

The world we live in has changed drastically in the last five years, and it’s a safe bet it will rapidly evolve in the next five. In the midst of all that change, how can we keep our children engaged in learning and focused on the task at hand?

 

Meet Your Child Where They Are

As a leading Christian homeschool curriculum publisher, we at Alpha Omega Publications have learned the necessity of meeting students where they are and helping them learn in the way they do best.

For some students, a print curriculum still works best, but they need to be engaged through photos and graphics that hold their attention. For that reason, we have spent the last four years redesigning our LIFEPAC courses—a project we are excited to see reach completion in April.

Meanwhile, other students thrive through online learning, like Monarch, our Christian online homeschool curriculum for grades 3-12, which offers complete customization and powerful, interactive features.

Embrace On-Demand

On-demand programs, like Netflix, don’t have to be the enemy of a homeschool parent. Instead of fighting with your child about streaming content, take a break together and enjoy the expansive selection of educational shows the service—and others like it—offer.

A few of our favorite on-demand programs for homeschool families include:

  • The Bible, a historical TV drama that spans 10 episodes and originally aired on The History Channel in 2013
  • The American Bible Challenge, a game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy that aired for three seasons on the Game Show Network
  • Joseph King of Dreams, an animated film telling the story of Joseph voiced by Ben Affleck
  • The Civil War, a nine-episode documentary from renowned director Ken Burns with a memorable soundtrack highlighted by “Ashokan Farewell”

 

Keep the Christian Worldview at the Forefront

However you choose to implement a homeschool education, most Christian families find it critical to ensure the Christian worldview is at the forefront. It’s possible to find content that both keeps students engaged—and challenged—while also strengthening a student’s faith in Christ. Do your research, and make sure the program you choose is right for your family and values.

It’s common for online learning to intimidate homeschool parents who are used to using textbooks. However, many families that make the switch to online curriculum discover that the benefits of learning online far outweigh the fears they once felt. Check out the list below to discover four ways online curriculum helps homeschoolers succeed.

It’s flexible.

No matter the time, place, or your child’s preferred pace, online curriculum lets homeschoolers study when and how it is convenient for them. Monarch Subscription Plans take convenience one step further by providing complete access to 50 courses for grades 3-12, allowing students to mix and match courses across grade levels to suit their individual learning needs.

Students build professional communication skills every day.

Because email and instant messaging systems are mainstream forms of communication within the workplace today, learning to express thoughts in an orderly fashion is vital to success in the professional world. Monarch’s built-in messaging system provides students with an opportunity to practice virtual communication skills as they encounter questions or concerns while completing coursework.

Online curriculum provides immediate access to the latest information.

As history happens and technology advances from day to day, there’s no need to wait around for software updates or a new edition of your textbook. Online curriculum can be updated anytime, providing your child with constant access to the most up-to-date information.

Record keeping is easy, and feedback is instant.

Online learning programs minimize clutter by storing student data digitally. In addition, Monarch makes life easier for everyone by automatically grading 85% of student work. This time-saving feature provides students with instant academic feedback and families with more time together.
