Most of the time, words like “studying” and “vacations”, can sound like complete antonyms. In general, studying at a school can be exhausting, to the point that can become stressful for kids. However, studying by itself may not be as stressful as studying while at school, where kids must past determined exams. Studying or learning something new, just because you’re enjoying it is a whole other thing.
Vacations hide a great opportunity to encourage kids to learn something new. We can give kids the individual attention to learn something just for joy using technology, without pressure or deadlines, something that might be hard to find while at school.
Besides this, there are benefits involved in learning during vacations, here I present you with two simple benefits:
1) Discovering new interests: During the academic year, given the large number of students in the same classroom and the quantity of content that the teacher must teach, it becomes very difficult to spend more time on a determined unit of content so kids can not only memorize the content, but also deepen in more areas, going further and satisfying their curiosity. During vacations, parents could help their kids by presenting them different topics related to any field like math, science, language, music, art, etc. and let kids nose around that, going at their own rhythm and discover what they like.
2) Preparation for next term: Parents can help kids to get ready for the next academic year during vacations. Just remember that the idea is to make kids enjoy what they’re doing, so a good idea is to gamify learning and skill practice. One important advantage of the games is that kids can fail without risks, they can just start over, no pressures. In fact, within games, failing can get you closer to the next level because the user learns something new.
