eLearning Homework

Dr. Charles E. Notar; Dr. Debra J. Weingarth


Physical classrooms, once the norm, are now being supplemented and in some cases supplanted with eLearning. This new environment has impacted every segment of learning. "Traditional homework," assigned to reinforce a response to teacher directed lessons, versus homework in the new eLearning environment, is a focus of this article. Teacher roles for supporting basic requirements and helpful hints to support parents/caregivers in this new eLearning role are addressed. Suggestions for teachers, parents and students are also discussed. Topics include assisting, planning, intervening, setting time, place, schedules, routines and limiting distractions. Other considerations, i.e. tools, and strategies, as well as student mental and physical needs supporting ownership for learning are also included.
