To help with knowledge retention, consider facilitating conversations with your learner about what they’re working on in school. Encourage them to “teach” you what they’ve learned and be sure to ask them questions to encourage a deeper conversation. If you have multiple children, your interpersonal learners may enjoy teaching their siblings.
Online school provides extra flexibility that can make it possible for teachers to meet the needs of students with different learning preferences. Virtual educators have experience supporting learners of varying personalities. If you’re not sure what type of learner your student is or how to best support them, consider asking their teacher for advice. That way, you’ll be able to work collaboratively to support your child’s learning.
It’s okay if your child isn’t an interpersonal learner; most students have completely different learning preferences. However, if you find that your student struggles in social settings, consider facilitating opportunities to strengthen their social skills.
