The reason for the statement from our headline is simple – the online school adapts to its students, not the other way around. However, young athletes usually have no trouble whatsoever to catch the rhythm with a virtual school. Here’s why – the online education we provide depends a lot on students’ daily routines and self-discipline. The majority of young athletes have already mastered these two traits, so schooling online is not a problem. It’s actually a huge benefit.
Sport World School gives its students the chance to shape the school the way it suits them the best. In other words, each student at our online school creates an individual learning plan. Aside from the possibility of learning at the comfort of their home, our students can customize other segments. For example, they choose when the schooling day starts and when it ends. That can come in handy for young athletes because they can organize schooling around their sports activities.
Although online school gives a lot of freedom to students, they still have to learn. And learning requires some discipline. If they don’t manage their time properly, they can easily fall into a trap, and suddenly they’ll have a lot of materials to catch up with. However, students who are playing sports are already used to following certain routines and schedules.
Why Are Daily Routines Important at Online School?
Sometimes children are overwhelmed with the freedom they get at online school. It doesn’t happen right when they start. Usually, they follow the routine and do their assignments regularly in the beginning. But sometimes, they skip them because they are just not in the mood for doing school things at that moment. And that is entirely ok until it becomes a habit.
That is why our education consultants usually advise parents to help their children create habits of learning every day, even though they attend an online school. For students who are playing sports – that habit almost comes naturally. They already have a habit of following a particular regiment that they practice with their coach, especially when they notice the benefits and results of such behavior and routine.
Online students should decide how long they will learn each day, and they should stick to that plan. They can log-in to SWS online learning platform anytime they want. They should create their own timetable. Even better, they can choose subjects they will learn on each particular day.
Self-Discipline Matters, Too
While some of you might think that self-discipline implies the routine mentioned above – it doesn’t. At online school, students learn from the platform, the teacher is not physically present, and there are no other children. They are on their own. Learning materials on our platform are easy to digest, and students don’t have a problem understanding them. Plus, interactive elements such as videos and visuals are of great help.
However, some students might find it hard to stick to their daily routines in the beginning. That is usually not the case with young athletes, especially if they do individual sports. They are already accustomed to working and practicing alone. Young athletes are self-disciplined, and they do what must be done even when they don’t feel like doing it at the moment. So, for example, if they skipped one day of learning, athletes know that they must make up for it tomorrow. That’s because they do the same with missed practice sessions.
SWS Is Always There to Help
We have to mention, SWS has one on one teaching support that is available to our students on demand. If a student wants a tutor, we will provide one (the tuition fee covers the support). Our students learn directly from the platform, but at any moment, they can send a question to the teacher via a messaging program installed on the platform. Our teachers will respond shortly because they monitor the progress of students online.
The entire SWS team is here to help students adapt to online school, especially if they are transferring from a regular school, and this virtual education is new for them. But, as we have said, there is not much adjusting to the school because SWS fits the individual needs of students.
