Today's Digital Learners

These days, homeschooled kids have access to so much technology. And, they're using it regularly. So, why not take advantage of it in creative ways to encourage collaboration with others in the learning process?

I am sharing this video because I think it does a great job of showing the importance of using technology to learn. Yes, it's geared towards traditional classroom and learning environments. However, I think it not only validates why you homeschool, but it encourages us to think about how we can use technology to enrich learning with our kids. It's exciting when you think about it because the possibilities are endless!

How are you already using technology in your homeschool? What technologies do your learners have access to on a regular basis (including web-based, mobile phones, GPS units, etc.)?


  1. Visiting from the Alexa Hop from I stumbled this post, Google +1, and followed you;)

  2. I plan on homeschooling my kids when I have them! Thanks for sharing through this blog! I went to college for elementary education, so it's nice to see some of the things I was taught incorporated in homeschooling as well!
