Integrated online learning approach
WiloStar3D uses an integrated approach to online learning. This helps students stay focused and allows learners to make more meaning about the topics they are studying.
Many parents are certain that they want to homeschool their child, but are worried that their child would not enjoy homeschooling. The main concerns I hear from parents are about social isolation, and about discipline. Would their child feel isolated if she doesn’t attend a physical school every day? And would their child have the discipline needed to learn in an environment that is much more independent than traditional schooling?
My own experience is that the vast majority of children love homeschooling. Sure, homeschooling takes some getting used to. It’s very different than what your child knows. But it’s better.
Homeschooled kids are not socially isolated. This is especially true for our online homeschool academy, WiloStar3D, because they get to go to a 3D school every day and interact with teachers and with peers. But in any homeschooling scenario, parents are definitely encouraged to meet with other homeschooling families, to go on outings, and to send their kids to enrichment classes. By the way, research consistently shows that grownups who were homeschooled as kids are well adjusted socially. So the social concern really is no more than just a myth.
As for the discipline aspect, homeschooling is perfect for kids who are self-motivated, independent, and want to learn. WiloStar 3D students are expected to remain current with all class assignments and to participate on a regular basis in our 3D virtual learning community, Wiloworlds. If you’re not sure about your child’s desire to learn, you will have to monitor them more closely, especially at the start – but this is true for any learning situation – students that are less motivated need more supervision. The beauty of 3D learning is that it often transforms reluctant learners into enthusiastic learners, simply becuase it is more interesting.
Many parents turn to WiloStar3D looking for a way to more fully engage their ADD child while homeschooling online. It can be a long road trying to find the best approach when looking at all the online homeschooling curriculum choices. WiloStar3D uses an interactive approach that has a fully accredited integrated academics behind it. Students with ADD are more fully engaged using custom avatars that compliment the curriculum. Instead of just reading about the body, students can teleport themselves right into the human blood stream a-la- Fantastic Voyage and really immerse themselves into what they are reading and learning about! Leveraging that creative spark with ADD students helps reignite the fires and helps them hone in on what they are learning.
Educational research has shown that many students with ADD are visual learners. The WiloStar3D online homeschooling program for ADD students has been carefully crafted to address visually oriented learners.
