Overcome Virtual Fatigue with Self-Paced Online Learning

The thing about learning from home is that it lends itself to studying at one's own pace. This is very true for children. In recent times parents (and teachers) had a unique opportunity to observe how children can learn on their own in their online learning endeavours. Parents got to take an active role in their children's education while teachers did the most in hosting online classes on platforms such as Zoom. However, "Zoom fatigue" is a thing. The constant, static online classes that try and emulate traditional classrooms may work for some children but it is not a one size fits all solution. As Motherly puts it "seeing classmates and friends through little squares on a screen" makes you susceptible to Zoom fatigue.

The ability to study at your own pace is a valuable tool for children to learn and offers a solution to the virtual fatigue a child might face. They can determine, alongside their parents and teachers who offer additional guidance and structure, what the best way is for them to learn.

The issue is that finding a structured curriculum-based product online, recorded by qualified and experienced teachers (like those amazing and diligently teachers who regularly host live zoom classes to keep their learners on track) can be tricky. Where can you learn Grade 1 English or high school mathematics online? Where can you find the entire school year's work for Accounting or Physical sciences for instance? And now that robotics and coding forms part of the Foundation Phase CAPS curriculum are there even any resources online to give your children the opportunity to learn in their own time?

There are many educational resources and extra lesson opportunities online. dorKk makes finding all the relevant CAPS-aligned lessons available in one simple-to-use portal an easy, stress-free task.
