KIDS

New to Online Learning?

Many teens in Arizona are finding themselves using online learning tools that they have never used before, due to the social distancing measures in place at the moment. This can be a daunting prospect for some people, but it can actually be a very fun, engaging way to learn. And you never have to raise your hand to get a hall pass!

I spoke to some of our Teen Volunteers here at DFL to ask if they had any favorite sites, tools, or tips for getting in the swing of online learning and here are two of their favorites:

From ASU Digital Prep

Three Study Tips for Online Students

and from Northeastern University.

8 STRATEGIES FOR GETTING THE MOST OUT OF AN ONLINE CLASS

And don’t forget that DFL hosts a large array of digital resources to discover: Desert Foothills Library Digital Resources

Children book shelvesStorytime @ Desert Foothills Library

Support your children’s early literacy-skill building by bringing them to one of the Desert Foothills Library’s weekly storytimes.  Storytimes feature books, rhymes, songs, fingerplays, movement, and/or crafts.

Next time you visit the Library, sign your child up for a library card and help to foster his or her lifelong love for learning! There is no minimum age requirement for children, accompanied by a parent or guardian, to register for a library card.
