COVID-19 School Closures: Tips for Distance Learning

This blog is written by Klara Musilova, a student from Léman International School, Chengdu.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected countless people, students included. Schools are closing or already closed to lower transmission rates, and this includes some Nord Anglia schools. This creates an unexpected situation for everyone involved, leading to the necessity for new learning strategies. Here are some tips to help you or your children continue succeeding educationally while staying safe:

Have a designated workspace.
Youth Central recommends this in their "Top 10 Study Tips" article. Having a designated workspace may create more motivation from the start, and associating a certain spot with studying may make it feel like a more interesting activity.

Create a routine.
“Having a routine” is the top study tip of a mother of two children in a Nord Anglia school currently distance learning online due to COVID-19. Creating a routine, planning, and forming habits is a good way to ensure every day gets off to a good start, because once a habit of being focused is established, productivity will come naturally.

Take breaks.
Maintaining concentration for a long time is difficult, which is why taking breaks is so important. As Oxford Learning’s "How to Study Effectively" points out, pausing in learning for short bursts allows for for greater overall concentration. We are not machines, and so getting distracted is normal. Taking breaks plans for the inevitable and creates structure for it, increasing motivation while lowering time spent off-course.

There they are! Staying safe is the most crucial thing right now, so make sure to follow both safety precautions and teacher updates. Hopefully, these tips are helpful in this difficult situation, though whatever strategy works is often the best choice, regardless of whether or not it is included here.
