3 Reasons To Enhance Your Homeschool With Technology
Whether you are new to homeschooling or you have a few years under your belt, it’s important to remain flexible in your homeschool. We’ve found that even the best curriculum for your family at the time, may not cover all that you need. Children’s needs and life seasons change, sometimes within a school year. When we are flexible, we can find ways to customize our child’s education.
I am not one to be able to give up the feeling of books in hand entirely and we try to promote healthy amounts media in our home. I have found, when done intentionally, we can use technology to enhance our homeschool and teach our children to make good media choices.
Here are 3 Ways it can benefit you too!

You Can Use it to Adapt to Your Child’s Age
It’s a great blessing to be able to homeschool our children. It also works much better for us when we can combine as many subjects as possible. By using technology to enhance our homeschooling, we can dive in deeper for the older ones or find a video, audiobook or resource that will be more suitable for the younger ages in our family.
You Can Teach to Your Child’s Interests
This is one of my favorite ways to use technology wisely in our homeschool. We could never buy or find a curriculum that would teach to all 5 of our children’s interests! We can use technology to supplement and dig into those subjects that may not be included. Plus if your children are like mine, they can be interested in something new every week!
Finding a curriculum that we love and being flexible by using technology to enhance our homeschooling has made a huge difference in our experience and children’s education!
We use technology as a reward for a good week of hard studying. There are games and apps aplenty to re-enforce a topic or even test something’s. And I absolutely LOVE YouTube for teaching with songs and demonstrations!
Yes! I love your idea of using it as a reward 🙂 Thanks so much for sharing!
