The right kind of learning at home can benefit you:
- Improves your self-regulation – helps you manage your time, goals, focus, distractions, and personal responsibility for learning.
- Reading online is thought to be far more complex than traditional paper-based reading
- Increases your achievement (scores, grades or levels) and sets you up for future success.
- Research studies repeatedly show a positive relationship between homework and student achievement
- The skills you learn from managing and discussing your learning at home has positive impacts in your future.
- being focussed in your job (later in life)
- managing your money
- looking after personal needs such as your health
- planning for the future (getting your car licence, a passport, travelling overseas)
- opportunities for parent (or caregiver) involvement and relationship building.
- deepen your own understanding by sharing your learning with your family, as well as help keeping your parents or whānau informed
