Using the Internet and Social Networking Sites in Home School

You have to have had your head in the sand for the past several years not to have heard of the ever-growing world of social networking websites such as Myspace, gloryLane, and Facebook. But what are these sites, really? And is there a way that you can use them and the internet in general to enhance your home school environment? Although it is a personal decision, as long as you’re careful the general answer would be yes.

First of all, the most important thing to remember about the internet is that it can be a dangerous, unsavory place, particularly for children. Should you decide to embark on the journey of incorporating today’s technology into your home school curriculum, be sure that you are diligent in monitoring the safety of your students.

That being said, what types of things can you do to bring the world wide web into your classroom?

Social networking sites, such as Facebook or the Christian Networking site gloryLane, are ways in which friends can keep in touch with one another, via cyberspace, and are growing in popularity daily. Many of these sites contain groups and causes you can join, ways to share links with your friends and family, and even games you can play. The games can even be interactive and somewhat educational, such as word games and IQ challenges, which will at least get your child thinking. If properly monitored, these sites can be an excellent way to foster socialization, particularly for the only child in a home school home. But be cautioned, just as there are positive aspects to some of these sites, there are, of course, also dangers. If you allow your child to create an account, be sure that the privacy levels are properly in place, and keep close tabs on what your child is doing when visiting their account.

Chat rooms and forums are another way to communicate with others online. There are countless sites that offer the ability to set up a free account and become a member of their communities, some general, others much more specific to a certain hobby or subject. In fact, there are even several out there dedicated to the world of home schooling. These types of sites can be beneficial to your child by encouraging them to develop and share thoughtful opinions with others and participate in worthwhile discussions. However, just as with the social networking sites, you must do your due diligence in properly monitoring any forum or chat activity that your child is participating in.

Blogs are an excellent way to help your child develop a love for writing. There are multiple websites that offer free blogs to anyone who wants to start one. Allowing your child to establish their own blog will help them to become independent, flex their creativity muscles, and share their thoughts and ideas with anyone who is interested in reading it. And the possible subjects or themes of blogs are endless. Is your child especially interested in ballet? Maybe a particular sport piques your son’s interest. Whatever they are passionate about would make great material for their own blog. What better way to encourage your student to write than to allow them to publish their work online, for the world to see?

As always, you must be cautiously optimistic about today’s changing and developing technological resources, and safety is always the key. Remind your child regularly that it is never ok to share personal information, such as address or phone numbers, with anyone they are speaking to online. If you are careful and diligent about it, the internet can be an excellent tool to add a new dimension to your home school classroom.

Christian Homeschooling: Central Objectives

Lets take a look at the central objectives of an outstanding Christian homeschooling program.

The central objectives of any good homeschooling program should be:

1) to assist students in the understanding and development of their own strengths and weaknesses,

2) To perceive, respond to and participate in God’s continuing activity and revelation in the human and Christian communities. If they deal with their continual life involvements of becoming an independent adult,

3) to provide a wide range of stimulating resources and tools that will enable students and parents to fully explore the world God has created,

4) to assist members of the Christian community to learn how to become change agents in the world, and

5) to explore ways in which homeschooling students can become social activists.

It is crucial to exist within a supportive believing community for the support necessary to become a change agent in society. The central objective of a good homeschool plan starts with the assumption that believers within the Christian community can become change agent much as Jesus commands us to be salt and light in the world

One temptation when developing the Christian homeschool curriculum is to try to copy the same educational system that most of us grew up with. Many homeschoolers set up desks and blackboards in their kitchens and tried to duplicate the educational process that exists in most public and private schools. I would like to propose that homeschooling does not have to replicate the traditional learning process and can and should in many cases reinvent the process so that more appropriately adapt to the needs of the individual learners.

In a traditional school system, students are grouped together by their chronological age. Every student that was born in a specific year is put in that grade level. Your respective of their intelligence and their mastery of the material. This alone create enormous problems for the teachers. The fact that everyone in the classroom was born in the same year means that both the curriculum and the teaching processes is usually dumbed down to the lowest common denominator. In other words, the teacher is often forced to teach to the slowest child in the classroom. What happens to the rest of the children in this scenario? It has been said that a one size fits all education, it’s no one. This is where we, as homeschoolers, have tremendous freedom.

One of the central objectives in creating a reinvented homeschool program is to forgo the notion that just because children were born in a certain year. That means they should have acquired certain skills and should be learning from certain books. That’s completely rethink the idea that children need to be at a specific place at specific times. It’s learning a race? Who determines when and why might eight-year-old has to learn XYZ. Exactly when he’s eight? This basic philosophy stems from the need in an institutional setting to herd large groups of children from one task to the other at the same time. In a great homeschooling program, we can jettison this notion altogether and concentrate our efforts on meeting the individual needs of our children.
