If you have ever wondered about your child's learning challenges, then a tablet device can help. This article has information to help you use technology to identify your child's struggle areas. For most adults, a tablet device has two distinct use categories. The first is obviously entertainment: watching Netflix, playing games, online shopping, or even watching videos on how to prepare a meal. The second (by a long shot) would be productivity. This would include watching Netflix, playing games, online shopping, or even watching videos....okay, maybe adults really just see these devices as an entertainment platform.

The Benefits of Introducing Your Youngster to a Tablet

While it’s true that these devices can certainly fill an entertainment void in your life, they are also a powerful teaching and learning tool which your child can utilize to improve their grades. Believe us or not! If you are considering providing your child with a tablet device but are hesitant because you can’t see their educational benefits, The Tutoring Center, Upland CA has the following information to share.

Identify Learning Challenges

One of the most difficult aspects of parenting is knowing just how well your child is doing in school. After all, once they leave the house to get on that bus, parents have a limited understanding of how their student is doing until either a glowing report card arrives home or worse, a letter asking for a meeting with their teacher(s). Quality learning apps available on a tablet device have powerful data capturing, mining, and reporting capabilities. Imagine the following scenario:
  • Your student settles into their study space and completes their test preparation recollection practice using home made flash cards.
  • Their door is closed.
  • You hear some slight mumbling as you walk past their door.
  • Once their study time is over, they emerge from their study space.
  • You ask them how it went, and they reply with something generic like a ‘great’, ‘it was good’, or more commonly, ‘fine’.
In this example, you have little to no idea how productive the study session really was or whether there were any particular items which your student struggled to recall in a timely fashion. If you have noticed that your child is struggling with their homework as they start the new school year or they have a general lack of confidence in their abilities, tutoring in can help. Speak with The Tutoring Center, Upland CA by calling (909) 579-0274 to find out more. During your free initial consultation, a learning professional can answer any questions that you may have about how tutoring in Upland CA works and how your child can benefit from it. Now, let’s introduce a tablet device to the example:
  • Your student settles into their study space and completes their test preparation recollection practice using digital flashcards created using a flashcard app on a tablet device.
  • You hear some slight mumbling as you walk past their door.
  • Once their study time is over, they emerge from their study space.
  • You ask them how it went, and they reply with something generic like a ‘great’, ‘it was good’, or more commonly, ‘fine’.
Mostly the same. However, let’s add two more steps to the example.
  • Your child hands you their tablet device.
  • You open their flash card learning app which provides you with easy to understand reports and graphics about how the lesson went.
This information could include:
  • How often certain prompts were repeated
  • The success rate of each prompt
  • How long it took to answer each prompt
  • Which prompts require little to no further recollection
  • How long your child actually studied for
With this crucial information, a parent can more easily identify common or recurring learning challenges. As every parent and teacher knows, tackling any learning challenges early on is the best way to overcome them, and this level of information can provide that same early alert. Of course, it isn’t all bad news which comes from these reports. The information provided can also help you to identify your child’s strengths in particular areas or subjects. Again, this information is invaluable, giving parents and students the ability to identify and nurture naturally talented areas of their educational path.
