Teens & Online Learning

Capital Area District Libraries’ Marisela Garza gives us the 411 on how CADL can help with education tools for our youth.

Resources for Home or Classroom

For most parents and educators, the coronavirus pandemic has thrown a heavy wrench into the school experience as we know it. Although the American Academy of Pediatrics has recently recommended that schools try to have students physically present in the fall, online learning is sure to continue to some degree.

Educators agree that it’s important for teens to be consistent in pursuing online instructional activities. Terrill Bravender, chief of adolescent medicine at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, advises teens to stick to a school schedule, especially during school day hours.

“One of the most important things to do in the midst of the pandemic is to create structure in the day,” he said.

Capital Area District Libraries offers valuable online resources that enhance high school instruction, whether students are in classrooms or at home.

 

Lynda Library

Teenagers are growing up in a world where technology rules the day. Programming languages are the bones of the tech we use today, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates computer occupations will have risen 12% between 2018 and 2028. With a CADL card, you can access Lynda Library to learn Python, a high-level yet general-purpose programming language. Start with Python for Students, a beginner-level course for high school and college students.

 

Read It!

The Michigan Electronic Library offers this resource to help middle and high school students find reading material about a variety of subjects. The articles are short and meant to enhance comprehension, with a short quiz included. Find Read It! at mel.org/libraries/school/teen.

 

LearningExpress Library for College Prep

Taking college entrance exams can be stressful. To ease anxiety, it may help to divide preparation for tests into small, weekly testing blocks. At LearningExpress Library, teens can take eight practice tests for the PSAT/NMSQT. They can also explore college options, write a standout college essay, and find potential scholarships.

With a little planning and strategy, teens can find time spent both in their school buildings and at home to be rewarding and productive. For details about all our free education resources, visit cadl.org/learn.
