So you want to teach online and work from home? Many people want to do this, but they have no idea where to start. I get the question all of the time, “where do I even begin to look for an online teaching job?” Most people think teaching online would be a great thing to do full time or to do on the side to supplement their incomes. They just need to know where to start looking and what to look for.
We’re increasingly relying on technology to teach children. But because technology won’t ever replace great teaching, basic educational aids still have a role to play.
This is because educational aids (such as books, toys or equipment that require some hands-on interaction) create a visual, auditory or interactive experience for children who are learning new things, delivering learning objectives in a way that is highly engaging.
Education is quickly moving into the digital realm. There are apps for everything teachers and students need—from lesson planning to flashcards to behavior monitoring. Whole classrooms are getting flipped; lessons are taking place online, while practice and remediation are happening in person. High schools are offering online courses for graduation credit and, once a student graduates, they can earn certain college degrees without ever stepping foot on campus.
The verdict is in, and when it comes to homework, it appears that less is more. Research shows that several of the countries scoring top in the world for education, surprisingly dole out the least amount of homework to their students.
