Is Online Learning For You?

One of the nice things about working in the early phases of a growing market is that we’re all finding our ways together. A very common question that comes up when we talk with students and parents is:

What kind of child can thrive online?

Our iQ Academy Washington teachers got together and created a “Preparing for Online Success” quiz that helps students and their families rank their learning habits in order to prepare to be an online learner. More than 1M students in grades kindergarten through 12 are taking classes online today. Our most successful students have (and I’d pose in this order):

  • Supportive parents or family members at home to help out
  • A sense of independence
  • The ability to understand written instructions
  • A joy around technology
