HOME SCHOOL: Different environments students are learning from
As schools will reopen on 8th March, which for some children may be the first time they've been back at school for just under a year.
Whilst this may incite joy from parents all over the nation, online tutoring platform MyTutor wanted to take a look at how exactly Brits set up their homes as best as they could for the prolonged home-schooling of their children in a UK-first study.
The research indicated that the way parents deemed best to facilitate learning differed vastly from household to household. Over a quarter of children were working from a hand held device as they didn't have access to laptops or PCs.
Whilst 57% said that their child had a set place and desk for home-schooling to emulate a classroom environment and 58% of children worked in silence, 46% stated their child was set up on a sofa or wherever they felt most comfortable to learn from home. The data also found that 48% of parents had all of their children home-schooling together, despite working from different curriculums.
