Because Life is Better at the Lake

5 Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling at Caddo Lake

by




Many parents are turning to virtual schooling for the 2020-21 school year due to pandemic social distancing guidelines and COVID-19 fears. Since school started, more than 2,000 Texas public school students have tested positive for COVID-19, making virtual schooling even more attractive. If you’ve decided to school your children online this year, why not take a week and enjoy some family time at Caddo Lake when fewer people will be around?

Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling

Try these virtual learning hacks as you enjoy some family time at Caddo Lake.

  1. Create virtual school workstations - To cut down on distractions and keep your children focused on learning, take a cue from one mom who created virtual workstations for her children using presentation boards.
  2. Set up a cell phone charging center - One distraction many public schools have reported in recent years are personal cell phones in the classrooms. Students end up spending more time texting with each other than doing class work. While public school teachers may not be able to take phones, Mom can. Set up a charging station for your entire family and keep all the phones at that one location in the house. Students can have them at break time.
  3. Establish a home network - If your children log into virtual school on multiple devices throughout the day, you can save a lot of time by networking your devices to allow students to login to virtual school quickly from any device.
  4. Ask if your school gives credit for life experiences - Many colleges and universities offer students credit for life experiences. Since students in primary and secondary schools frequently take field trips and get learning credit for them, ask your virtual school administrator if a trip to Caddo Lake would qualify as learning credit. You never know, they may say “Yes.”
  5. Stream classroom training to your TV - If you have a smart TV, you may be able to stream Zoom classroom meetings and other online lectures to your TV. You may even be able to use a wifi display dongle.
Enjoy Virtual Schooling at Caddo Lake

Just because you’re schooling your children from home doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Take your family to Caddo Lake for a week and let your children participate in online learning during the day while enjoying some quality recreational time in the afternoon and evening. Caddo Lake has some incredible cabins and family getaways you can rent while your children gain the benefits of virtual schooling and enjoy some quality family time at the lake.
