Collaboration is the key. As a parent or a Connections Academy® Learning Coach in a virtual school, you're in an ideal position to know that your student becomes frustrated when assignments are too hard or bored when they're too easy. You’ll also know when learning conditions are "just right" for giving your online student that pleasurable rush of problem-solving success.
With your help and feedback, virtual school teachers can better understand your individual student's thought processes and help ensure the very best conditions for thinking, learning, and liking school. We hope these insights from cognitive psychology will help you support your child's education and allow you to become the best Learning Coach you can be.
Of course, there may be other reasons your teenage student doesn’t like school. Find out how online school can help struggling teens.
