Tips and Tricks for Distance Learning

It's that time of year again - the air is getting colder and the days are getting shorter. As we roll into September, back to school season is beginning to start up. However, this year is different. The pandemic has pushed schools to decide whether or not to open and what the consequences of each choice may bring. 

Although we might have no control on whether schools open or not, we do have control on making sure that our kids have the best environment to learn. If you yourself have been working from home for a while, you might have found you needed to increase your ergonomics in your work station. Maybe you noticed more low back pain, neck pain, and headaches. All these aches can cause our productivity and overall work performance to decrease.

Now with kids starting back at school it’s the perfect time to think about their school stations. It’s hard to focus, work, and learn when you're in an uncomfortable position! 

 

Seated learning station goals:

Tips!

Mixing up their positions can help keep the work space interesting!

 

Make sure to give them time to stand up and stretch it out!
