Homeschooling by definition has the potential to be more interesting than traditional schooling. Unless parents are completely intent on schooling in the same way as a traditional classroom, and most homeschooling parents are not at all into that, homeschooling gives the student a lot of autonomy and encourages independent work.
But not all homeschooling programs are created equally, and some are certainly more engaging than others. Homeschooling CAN be dry and repetitive – unless educators and parents are set on making it fun and interactive.
WiloStar3D is an online homeschool that prides itself on using technology, namely 3D virtual worlds, to make learning fun. We try to capture that ah-ha lightbulb moment! We think that students should be excited about learning. They should love going to school. We refuse to accept that children must spend 12 precious years doing something they hate, and learning very little in the process.
Our fully accredited homeschooling program is interesting to students because to them, it feels just like playing a video game. They get to develop virtual worlds, use highly expressive avatars and create collaborative projects with other students. Our 3D online homeschool takes learning from “passive” to “active” and from “boring” to “interesting.”
Parents love our school because it is fully accredited and because it is perfect for their intelligent, curious children. They see the spark in their kids’ eyes when they “go” to school (our 3D virtual school does in fact makes it feel as if they are going to school) and they see that their kids are being constantly challenged.
A 3D approach to home schooling adapts to different learning styles, promotes higher order thinking skill, helps retain materials learned and enhances problem-solving abilities. Most importantly, it keeps students engaged, motivates them to excel and results in higher achievement levels.
