Are you a multitasking Minecraft fan who wants to get the most out of their in-game time? If so, Learningworks for Kids is the right place for you! If you are new to our site and not sure where to begin, here are our top ten reasons why subscribing to LW4K is a must for you and your family:
Students can learn from the comfort of their own home.
While most students are doing at least a portion of their schooling from home, this will not always be the case. When we are back to shuttling our kids from school to sports to friends’ houses, Learningworks courses can still be completed from your family computer. No travel necessary!
Our classes are taught by experts trained in applying executive functions to today’s most popular games.
Executive functions are the most important, crucial skills for children in today’s world; they are the key to academic, career, and social development. Taking a class through Learningworks for Kids means that your child will learn about these skills from teachers who have been trained to present this information in a fun and dynamic way.
Kids will learn while playing the games they love such as Minecraft, Roblox, Dungeons and Dragons, and Animal Crossing.
Connecting gameplay to real life skills is at the heart of our mission. We have carefully chosen the games for our courses based on what children already love to play.
LW4K Live Courses are a more cost-effective alternative to individual coaching or tutoring.
Learningworks For Kids believes that bringing quality courses to your family should not break the bank; we are dedicated to providing educational programming at a cost that makes sense for parents.
Learning executive function skills helps across academic subjects.
Our research has shown that students who have well-developed executive function skills perform better in core academic subjects.
Executive functioning skills will help in day-to-day routines as well.
In addition to academics, an increase in executive functioning skills can help your child with social-emotional relationships as well as confidence in daily tasks such as chores, extracurricular activities, and hobbies.
Access to a large database of game and app reviews with information about what executive functions can be improved by using them.
Access our ever-growing archive of game and app reviews to check on a game your child is playing. You can gain insight into the content of the game as well as the executive functions that it can strengthen. Additionally, find tips and tricks that you as a parent can use to bring real-world conversations into your child’s gameplay.
