There are plenty of videos that teachers use to help their class understand a topic, or for them to watch on rainy days. If you are a homeschoooler, using Netflix can really be a great educational resource to your child’s education. They have plenty of educational videos that your children can watch when it is convenient for you. Below you will find some of the top benefits of using Netflix as an educational resource.
An affordable option
Netflix happens to be a very affordable way to watch all the educational videos you want, when you want. For less than $10 you can add a video to your lesson plan for the day, especially if your child is a visual learner. Since many parents are currently on a budget it can be very difficult to find things that are interesting for your child to watch and that are affordable.
Adds to your lesson plan
To really add to your lesson plan, especially history lessons, videos tend to work very well. Of course this does not mean that you have to have a video for every single lesson. National Geographic is just one example of shows that are educational and can add to your child’s lesson. I have found it best to pick out the videos in advance, that you want your child to watch along with the lessons. This way when it is time to watch all you have to do is click play.
Great for bad weather
There are bound to be days when you will not be able to take the kids outside to play. When bad weather strike Netflix has some really great movie options for a fun filled afternoon. The best part is that they can also be educational. Of course you can use it for just a fun movie too. I have found it to be great when the weather is not good, and the kids are usually very excited to watch because they feel like they are not really doing any school work.
Covers all subjects
With Netflix you will find that they have videos which cover every single subject, including learning another language. Often homeschool parents find it difficult to find a language program that is affordable, and fun for their kids. Watching a video is a great help for children who are learning a new language. They also offer helpful math videos where kids can get extra help on figure out difficult math assignments.
