5 Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling at Possum Kingdom Lake




One huge benefit to the inconvenience of COVID-19 is that many parents have decided to bring home their childrens’ education. As virtual schooling increases amid classroom social distancing guidelines passed by the Centers for Disease Control, school districts, and state governments, parents can get creative with recreational activities. In Texas, after returning to school, over 2,000 students have tested positive for COVID-19, which will likely lead to more parents going virtual with their childrens’ learning activities. Why not get away from the chaos and take your virtual school to Possum Kingdom Lake?

Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling

Try these virtual schooling hacks as you enjoy some family time at Possum Kingdom Lake.

  1. Create virtual school workstations - To cut down on distractions and keep your children focused on learning, take a cue from one mom who created simple virtual workstations for her children with presentation boards.
  2. Set up a cell phone charging center - One distraction many public schools have reported in recent years are personal cell phones in the classrooms. Students end up spending more time texting with each other than doing class work. While public school teachers may not be able to take phones, Mom can. Set up a charging station for your entire family and keep all the phones at that one location in the house. Students can have them at break time.
  3. Establish a home network - If your children log into virtual school on multiple devices throughout the day, you can save a lot of time by networking your devices to allow students to login to virtual school quickly from any device.
  4. Ask if your school gives credit for life experiences - Many colleges and universities offer students credit for life experiences. Since students in primary and secondary schools frequently take field trips and get learning credit for them, ask your virtual school administrator if a trip to Possum Kingdom Lake would qualify as learning credit. You never know, they may say “Yes.”
  5. Stream classroom training to your TV - If you have a smart TV, you may be able to stream Zoom classroom meetings and other online lectures to your TV. If you don't have a smart TV, you can use a wifi dongle.
