Overcome Virtual Fatigue with Self-Paced Online Learning
Heike Verhoef - 21 Jan 22
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.
