Nowadays there is a propensity and expectation for courses to include some elements of online learning, even for young learners. However, once a decision has been made to use an online learning platform or virtual learning environment there is often a lack of ‘love’ from teachers in using them due to their complexities, reliability and vagaries. But it doesn’t have to be this way. In this session we’ll look at the benefits of using online platforms with young learners and how teachers can use them to increase student engagement, maximize student learning and connect with parents.
