Webinar: Virtual Lifestyle Q&A
March 28th | Saturday | 1:00pm EST
As the entire nation comes to a standstill, schools are moving to virtual classes and families are considering homeschooling. Teens/tweens and parents have been thrown into a dark cloud. How do we do this? What is virtual schooling? Can we successfully do this without teachers present? How do we manage our time?
COVID-19 has single-handedly affected how students stay educated. The education philosophy will never be the same again. Join SKAI founders, Brennan-Pierson and Julian-Alexandre, as they introduce the "Virtual Lifestyle" of online schooling and homeschooling that they have experienced for the past 15 years. They will dispel preconceived notions of virtual schooling/homeschooling, explore advantages and disadvantages, share their daily routines and convey the benefits of the Virtual Lifestyle.
Most importantly, this webinar is designed to be a Q&A session so we will have plenty of time to discuss your questions and concerns about schooling at home. Parents - please join us with your questions!
