Homeschool Highschool Podcast Ep 105: Digital Learning Options for Homeschool Highschool
Why use digital learning with your homeschool highschoolers?
- It’s cool!
- It’s available!
We can use digital resources because these days, in homeschool high school, parents are not teachers as much as they are resource managers. We gather the best resources we can get and make them available to our teens, so that they can learn. We provide:
- Safety net if they need help
- Check ins
- Usually, grading and credit-assignment
Digital Textbooks (like 7SistersHomeschool.com’s curriculum)
7Sisters provides curriculum in:
- Electives and Career Exploration
- Social Sciences
- Financial Literacy
- Literature Study Guides
- Writing Guides
- Speech and Drama
- Spiritual Support and Apologetics
All of 7Sisters’ curriculum:
- Is editable (btw- if you have an old uneditable version of a 7Sisters textbook and would like to update to editable, contact us at info@7SistersHomeschool.com for a FREE update)
- Is readable on tablets or laptops, desktops OR
- Can be printed out
- Can be saved on the various devices if you have several teens using it and mom can grade on her device
We also have our very popular, truly interactive courses like 7Sisters’ Financial Literacy from a Christian Perspective, that includes google research and online simulations, creating their own budgets and financial planning,
Online classes (we are not affiliates for any of these, btw). Live or recorded. Here are a few:
- Dreaming Spires Homelearning
- Mr. D Math
- Music In Our Homeschool (check out the freebies)
- Potter’s School
- PA Homeschoolers AP Courses
- Stanford Online High School for gifted and talented teens
Need help grading? There are resources like:
- or hire tutors if you don’t feel competent
MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses). These are awesome courses from universities like MIT, UC Berkeley and more.
Teens don’t usually get course credit, so they should log hours. Some will grade and score if you pay a little. Here are a couple of them the providers:
Through companies like Audible:
- Great Courses (Teaching Company) (Be sure to log hours to earn the credit)
Dual Credit online from local college
Be sure your homeschool highschoolers are ready to do college-level work (at a college pace) because their grade stays with them through the rest of their college years.
- Some courses transfer and some don’t. Ask the college that your teens will be transferring to. Remember: Ask questions!
