Maybe it is no surprise that home education is becoming more and more popular as the years roll by? Increasing numbers of people are realising that it isn’t just the final option when all others are exhausted, but it is a realistic and effective way of providing an education for children.
There is no doubt that technology has played a big role in making home educating possible for millions of families across the world. The wealth of information we can access in seconds along with the innumerable resources, advice and help we have at our fingertips has made gaining a first-class education possible away from the confines of the classroom.
A growing number of parents are now finding themselves looking into the prospect of home educating their children. Some do so because of problems with their children’s schools. Others are only new parents but have already decided that they want to teach their children themselves. Whatever the reason, they usually have a lot of questions to ask about the legalities, the realities and the logistics of home educating.
This week we have joined ranks with the site that brings parenting and technology together for a week of home education issues.
Quib.ly has an education section within its member’s-only community, which was created to inform, support and guide parents
through the ever-changing techy world we are now raising our children in. I will be joining Quib.ly with four other home educators where we will be ready and waiting to answer your questions and provide our own insights into home ed. No two home ed journeys are the same and no two home educating families work the same way, so no doubt there will be lots of ideas and feedback to mull over!
Quib.ly will also be hosting a Twitter chat to explore home education on Thursday, 20th June at 11am. We will be on-hand to put some of the most popular myths to bed once and for all, to alleviate any concerns you might have about home education, and to answer the questions you might have about the legalities and practicalities of homeschooling. I’m quite sure we would have asked them all ourselves at some point!
Join in the Twitter chat and ask any questions you have by following the Twitter handle @Quibly and the hashtag #QuiblyQs. You can also find out more about Quib.ly’s home education week on Facebook, so join up, and join in our home education Q&A week with Quib.ly!
