If you have ever wondered what happens when your child goes to study, technology could help you get the answer. This article has some information about using a tablet to identify your child's struggle areas. You see them at almost every store that you visit: a tablet device. Whether it’s made by a popular brand and comes with a hefty price tag or it bears the mark of a manufacturer you have never heard of and is priced so low that the store is almost giving them away with every bottle of laundry detergent you buy, these devices are everywhere.

Is Your Child Struggling With Their Homework?

In fact, the chances are that you likely have used or owned a tablet device yourself. While you likely see it as an entertainment device which satisfies your needs for TV and movies on the go, catching up on the latest sports scores, or even arranging your household budget, the device in your hand can also be used as a powerful learning tool. Believe it or not! If you are unsure as to whether your student could benefit from a tablet device or you simply see them as an entertainment outlet, The Tutoring Center, Arlington TX has some information on how these devices can be used to identify any learning challenges your child may be having.

A Regular Study Session

Every parent wants to be as involved in their child’s education as possible. However, with a limited understanding of some of the more complex lessons, it can be difficult to understand the lesson itself, let alone whether your child is correct or not. This can make it very difficult for a parent to identify any learning challenges or strengths, with regular study sessions going something like this:
  1. Your child prepares to study for an upcoming exam using flash cards they made themselves.
  2. They close the door.
  3. There is some light mumbling to be heard.
  4. They emerge at the end of their study time.
  5. When asked about how it went, you receive a, ‘fine’, ‘yeah’, or maybe even just a grunt!
With this scenario, unless you have the ability to read minds, you have little to no knowledge of how well your child is studying or if they are struggling in any areas and not voicing their concerns. If your child struggles to recall important information during an exam or doesn’t feel confident in their abilities as they enter the new school year, tutoring in Arlington TX can help. Speak with The Tutoring Center, Arlington TX today by calling (817)-969-5100. During your free initial diagnostic assessment, a trained professional can answer all of your questions about how one-to-one tutoring in Arlington TX works and how your student can benefit from regular tutoring in Arlington TX. Now, keeping with the same scenario, let's include a tablet in their study session.
  1. Your child prepares to study for a test or small exam using an app which creates digital flashcards with the traditional prompts and responses.
  2. They close the door.
  3. There is some light mumbling to be heard.
  4. They emerge at the end of their study time.
  5. When asked about how it went, you receive a, ‘fine’, ‘yeah’, or maybe even just a grunt!
  6. They pass you their tablet.
  7. You open the app and are provided with detailed and graphical information about the progress of the study session.
It’s step seven which holds the real value. Some of the information that you may see includes:
  • How long your student actually studied for
  • How successful the session was
  • Which prompts required the most time to respond
  • Which prompts were the most incorrectly answered
  • Conversely, which prompts show positive results
Armed with this information, parents can gain a fuller understanding of how productive their child’s study sessions are, and identify any learning weaknesses or challenges that your student is facing in order to address them promptly through additional learning or new learning techniques. Of course, these reports aren’t all filled with bad news. Which aspects of study are your child’s strengths is just as important as identifying their weaknesses. Once you are aware of your child’s strong points you can speak with their teachers and teaching professionals about nurturing a natural talent or skill.
