This month, we are thrilled to be launching our very first conversation on the topic of educating our children from home. 2020 has been a year of massive upheaval on so many fronts–one of the major impacts has been on education. Overnight, parents found themselves having to be teachers–trying to at least–learning how to navigate the complexities of online learning. Teachers also have been learning how to manage how to teach via a screen.
Homeschoolers, unschoolers, and worldschoolers in many ways have been pushing to revolutionize the increasingly outdated education system. Above all else, the disconnect between a panel of five moms who are also professional and bona fide educators is meant to put things in perspective. We explore how this moment in time will impact the educational system. More concretely, we share actual tips and tricks to help parents learn from home.
Our panel of experts includes:
Monica Silvestro lives in Rockville, Maryland (USA) with her husband, two kids, and their dog Penny. Monica is currently a special education Paraeducator with past experience as a preschool teacher with a focus on curriculum development and nutrition education. Monica’s expertise is the socio-emotional development of early learners. You can find her on instagram @justanotherpreschoolteacher and on YouTube in “10 Minute Preschool.”
