Why Online Islamic Studies Classes are Great for Kids?
The importance of Islamic education is rising everywhere. Not only for adults, but it is also equally important for youngsters to study Islam.
Getting Islamic education at an early stage is beneficial as one learns the topics more easily and efficiently. This is why online Islamic studies are a great option for Muslim parents.
As we are living in a digital world, parents and children can truly benefit from taking Islamic classes online. There are so many institutes that are offering a way for kids and teens to complete Islamic courses without leaving their regular school. It is also a good option for those who are living in areas where mosques, Islamic schools or centers are not present, or whose in-person options are limited due to Covid-19.
One of the many benefits ofonline Islamic studiesfor kids is that they can learn and attend their classes all from the comfort and safety of their home. Not only do kids feel comfortable, but parents also remain worry-free. Many parents are already taking advantage of enrolling their children into online classes, especially since the beginning of the pandemic, as it remains the easiest, most convenient and most reliable option amidst the uncertainties of the current situation worldwide.
Getting full attention from the teacher
In another blog article, we mentioned how a traditional classroom setting can be detrimental to a child's learning depending on their abilities, needs, and learning style. This is in part because a traditional classroom setting generally doesn't allow for the one-on-one attention that some children need to thrive in their learning. A lack of one-on-one attention from a Quran Tutor for example can make learning the Quran more arduous and less effective for children. When there are multiple students in the class, it is difficult for a tutor to focus on a single child. In an online class, children get the attention they need, they can communicate directly with their teacher and ask questions without hesitation.
No need to leave the traditional education system - unless you want to!
Unless your child is attending an Islamic school where they are receiving a proper Islamic education, you will need to find a local mosque or Islamic center where they have an evening or weekend school program, which will add to everyone's already hectic schedule and your weekly commute. These in-person options might not even be available to you in your area, or might be paused due to the pandemic. With online Islamic studies, you can get quality Islamic education, flexibility and convenience without having to worry about your child's regular school schedule or other extra-curricular activities because online institutes like ours generally offer classes 24/7 - which means you can also take classes yourself and advance in your own Islamic education. Everyone can finally enjoy their learning journeys without having to worry about traffic, school or other commitments.
Shameless plug: If you are homeschooling your child, know that we also offer an Online Islamic Homeschool Program to help parents like you, because we know it can be intimidating to teach your child Arabic, Quran or Islam if you don't have a solid foundation yourself (and we offer Adult Group Classes as well!).
Keeping your child engaged
Let's face it: in the current era, it can be difficult to keep a young mind engaged and interested in their studies, especially if they already feel at odds with their deen. Going to an Islamic school or attending weekend school can be uneasy for Muslim kids and teens, and the curriculums are sometimes outdated. Switching or complementing with online Islamic studies can bring a new perspective to their learning journey: navigating new technology, interacting with their teacher one-on-one, learning through innovative platforms and engaging teaching methods can boost their motivation and confidence.
