Maximize home learning with the essentials

What do you need to create the best home learning experience?

There are lots of essentials you'll need to create the best home learning environment, starting with a desk and a comfortable, ergonomic chair. Then, you'll need a computing device like a desktop computer, laptop, or even a tablet/iPad with a keyboard and mouse attachment and stylus. Some kids might require or be able to make good use of having both.

Software is necessary for word processing, manipulating photos, opening and editing PDF files, and accessing specific educational programs provided by the school. In some cases, you can download software online while in others, you might want to purchase it via disk.

Other home school supplies you'll need include standard school supplies like paper, pens, pencils, ruler, stapler, paper clips, notebooks, printer ink, and a calculator. And these days, gear like headphones are convenient for privately listening to audio lessons while learning at home. eReaders can also come in handy for catching up on a novel that's required reading for the next book report, especially if multiple kids share one laptop for schoolwork.

What is STEAM learning and what kinds of STEAM toys are available?

STEAM learning references one of the most critical areas of learning these days for the new generation: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. And there are plenty of educational toys that teach kids about the basic principles of STEAM topics, including those that involve coding and programming, learning about and experimenting with scientific principles, understanding how to build things, arts and crafts, and learning how to play a musical instrument. 

Even puzzles and LEGO or other building toys help introduce kids to the basic principles behind STEAM learning. But the most innovative STEAM learning toys include robotics and science kits, and devices that make use of technologies like AR and coding to understand how things work. 

For younger kids, STEAM toys can be as simple as math-based games and toys, junior science kits, and other similar items.

What products are best for each level of schooling?

What products you need for home education will depend on the age of the children. School-aged kids, for example, can probably make do with a tablet or basic laptop or Chromebook while those in high-school might require a more robust computer or laptop along with a tablet/iPad. Pencils, pens, ruler, and calculator will be necessary for all grades so kids can do things like jot down study notes or work out math problems. 

Older kids with their own smartphones might be fine using those devices as calculators while younger kids will need real calculators to help with their work. Older kids will need a quiet, dedicated space to work, including their own desk, chair, and maybe even a printer. But younger kids might be ok working at the kitchen table or in the living room since they probably need mom and dad to help them with their homework assignments.
