    OVERVIEW


    While schools are trying their best to help students adapt to virtual lessons, parents are struggling with the new learning models and being at-home teachers. Our current reality has made every parent a home-schooling parent. For many parents, they are both transitioning to working from home and taking charge of their child’s at-home learning. This free webinar is for parents and caregivers who want to learn more about distance learning systems while becoming better “learning coaches” for their children. This webinar is focused on the practical tools that will help parents and caregivers manage the online learning tools as well as establishing routines and discipline for their child.
