The Importance of Incorporating Audio-Visual Elements Into Online Lessons for Young Children

In recent years, online schooling has become the go-to for many students across the globe. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, students have become accustomed to the pace and flexibility of online classes. As the transition from conventional (in-person) schooling to online schooling becomes more widespread, parents are increasingly discussing the features of quality online schooling.

At Cambridge Home School, we strongly believe that effective online schooling rests on the shoulders of cutting-edge online learning technology. We make our lessons more fun, engaging, stimulating, and retentive by leveraging advanced audio-visual elements. In this blog, we’ll offer a closer look at what makes this approach so important.

1. Keeping Students Engrossed in the Lesson

Young children can easily get distracted. If their online classes are boring and repetitive, they’ll struggle to pay attention. Our MA/PhD qualified subject specialist teachers use engaging animations, audios, and a wide range of other interactive elements to make each lesson as fun as possible!

We want our students to learn. To help younger students remain engrossed in their lessons (and consequently learn), we keep our classes as exciting as possible. State-of-the-art technology helps make this a tad easier for us!

2. Reducing/Eliminating the Risk of Class Disruptions

If students are unfocused and distracted during their online classes, they may act out and disrupt the class in numerous ways. Unfortunately, this can affect the decorum and momentum of the class as a whole.

As other students get distracted and develop a non-serious attitude towards their lessons, it can become extremely challenging for the teacher to get everyone back on track. Quality audio-visual elements help reduce and even eliminate the risk of class disruptions.

3. Improving Learning Outcomes

When difficult concepts are broken down into engaging elements, learning becomes a lot easier. Young students often struggle to understand certain topics and subtopics. By presenting these in digestible bites of audio-visual lessons, our teachers help them learn and perform better.

Our younger students actively participate in class, secure top grades in their mid-term and final exams, and progress exceptionally well from one academic stage to another.

As one of the leading online schools in the UK, Europe (including Western Russia), Africa, the Middle East, and Central Asia, we’re trusted by millions of parents across the globe.

If you’re considering switching from conventional (in-person) schooling to online schooling for your child, take a closer look at our four homeschooling programs: Primary Prep/Key Stage 2 (ages 8 to 10), Lower School/Key Stage 3 (ages 11 to 13), Upper School/IGCSEs (ages 14 to 16), and Sixth Form/AS & A-Levels (ages 17 to 19).
