Between school closures and social distancing, all kids now have an immediate need for structured learning. That leaves us parents frantically searching for online learning options for our kids. Luckily, learning sites are offering an abundance of choices. Some of us are better suited to tackle the issue, but for those of you who haven’t explored the online learning ecosystem, it can be overwhelming.
The problem is, not all opportunities are created equal, and “online learning” really takes more forms than we know what to do with. Should kids be at a screen and pointing and clicking their way through self-paced courses, or would they get more out of a live classroom environment?
Because let’s face it, it’s not just the opportunity to keep minds sharp, but for kids to be able to socialize as well. They need online learning experiences that help the developing habits in digital learning environments that will serve them the rest of their lives.
iD Tech understands (and facilitates) this.
Who is iD Tech?
iD Tech is a Silicon Valley family company that started educating over 20 years ago (not in a garage like you might have guessed but in a small studio above a garage) has built themselves up to be the #1 STEM summer camp, and is uniquely prepared to help families not only in summer but also right now.
With that, iD Tech has launched Virtual Tech Camps – live, structured, weeklong sessions for ages 7-19, offering a balanced schedule of 2 hours of live instruction + 2 hours of self-paced project development per day. Their curriculum includes Python, Java, Minecraft, Roblox, AI, Unreal Engine, Adobe, 3D modeling, and more.
Classes are kept small – only 5 students max per – to allow for personalized learning and time to socialize and learn alongside others, and are led by tech rockstar instructors who have a passion for tech and unmatched expertise.
These Virtual Tech Camps are offered alongside already-existing Online Private Lessons, which offer much of the same curriculum and are taught by the same instructors, but in a one-on-one, 60-minute session instead.
