EdNC Features Hill’s Remote Learning Tips
EducationNC (EdNC) is an online collection of data, research, news, information, and analysis regarding trends, issues, and challenges in North Carolina schools. The website is a trusted source of information for certain initiatives that expand the educational opportunities for all children in the state, increase their academic attainment, and improve the performance of the state’s public schools.
Last month, EdNC featured an essay by Rupen Fofaria, an equity and learning differences reporter for the organization, discussing the difficulties and dynamics of remote learning during a global pandemic. In his report, he notes the importance of continuing the development of executive function skills during this remote-learning year and cites Hill Learning Center as the resource that influences his list of tips to help parents and students navigate an at-home learning environment.
“A school’s curricula, no matter how strong, are wasted if a student can’t find an entry point,” Fofaria states after gaining insight from Hill Learning Center. “Executive function skills are the key.” He explores how parents can organize a remote learning space, set up a successful school day, establish expectations, and improve time management skills for their children who are learning at home. Additionally, he examines some of the most successful ways educators can promote the development of executive function skills remotely. Read his article to find out more about how parents and educators can support their students who are embarking on an at-home learning school year.
