Welcome to Day 1 of the 12 Days of Christmas for Homeschool Moms! Who wouldn’t like a little organization for Christmas?? Check out this amazing homeschool organization giveaway from Beth at Techie Homeschool Mom!
What’s your biggest problem when it comes to using technology for your homeschool?
Downloading your digital files to your computer or cloud storage or external drives ( or all of the above), but forgetting where you put them?
Constantly needing to help your kids get where they need to be online, trying to remember multiple usernames and passwords?
Needing to manage which child needs which computer when so that they can access all their files?
Nowadays, the need to organize your computers has become as crucial as the need to organize your physical homeschool supplies. By taking the time to set up our computers right, giving each child access to the tools they need for digital learning, you can eliminate many of the techie hassles and frustrations you’ve experienced in the past.
Many homeschool moms have experienced techie success with the course.
Charlotte used to stored files in folders on her hard drive, bookmarked websites in Chrome and started a spreadsheet with online course information. She felt overwhelmed by all the things that needed to be organized. She had little time to devote to it, and, with new stuff coming in all the time, felt like she felt like she was in “quicksand”
After Techie Homeschool Mom’s Guide to Digital Homeschool Organization, Charlotte transferred all her files over to cloud storage and got everything cataloged in a customer homeschool inventory database. hShe has a renewed confidence in her tech ability because she realized how many things she was already doing right. She knows the importance of helping her kids prepare for learning in our digital culture.
Andrea was a reluctant tech user who felt unconfident about using anything more technical than Google Drive to organize digital files.
Now, she uses the computer more as she begins to organize her downloads. She’s modeling to her kids how to be less intimidated by the computer, as opposed to her evident past anxiety. She feels “the computer is my friend and CAN make my life easier.”
In the past, Leslie downloaded and saved files to a very unorganized folder. She had set up digital organization systems in the past, but wouldn’t keep them maintained. Sometimes she’d just add a link to a table or spreadsheet. And often times, would just look up the link and text it to her children to access from their phone when it is needed. She knew she needed an easier way to organize the digital aspects of homeschooling.
Today, she is able to find resources with her very own customized homeschool inventory database and access files whenever she needs them. She has discovered new, more efficient uses for tools she had used in the past and has embraced the new tools she has learned about.
