Summer. The word conjures up images of sandy beaches, cookouts, volleyball games, and time spent with friends and family enjoying all that our beautiful Hawaiian islands have to offer. Though May has just disappeared from the top of the calendar, here at HTA we are already thinking of how to make our top-notch program even more amazing for the 2017-2018 school year. This includes finding new ways to help our families thrive in the blended learning model that HTA offers.
We know that our HTA Ohana loves the flexibility that face-to-face, virtual, and independent learning offers. That flexibility comes with additional areas of responsibility for teachers, students, and Learning Coaches alike. One such area for our students and Learning Coaches is the home learning space. The importance of the home learning space to the overall success of a student cannot be underestimated, and though we are only now checking off the early days of June, it’s never too early to begin thinking about your home learning space!
HTA offers a true partnership between teachers and parent Learning Coaches. True to our commitment to this partnership, we are excited about helping our families create home learning spaces that will suit the unique budgets and homes of individual families.
For the next seven weeks, join us on social media and our Honu Heartbeat blog as we provide tips and tricks for creating functional home learning spaces for students. Each week, we will be offering new ideas to inspire you as you begin thinking about the “how,” “what” and “where” of your home learning space. Later this summer, we will offer you the opportunity to share your space (#hta_ShareYourSpace) on our social media platforms, with the opportunity to win HTA swag, like hats and t-shirts.
Follow us on Facebook (@hawaiitechnologyacademyHTA) and Instagram(@htacharter) so you won’t miss out on these helpful posts - and feel free to share your ideas with the entire HTA Ohana, too! This summer, let HTA inspire you to plan your space (#hta_PlanYourSpace) as you prepare for the exciting year of learning ahead.
