Distance Learning: On Days When Learning Tasks Are More Fun, Children Learn More Independently
Children who are better at self-regulation find it easier overall to concentrate and put distractions aside in favour of their goals. Self-regulation is also conducive to their daily learning in distance learning situations, such as during the Corona pandemic, and children therefore need less support. This shows a study by researchers at the DIPF | Leibniz Institute for Research and Information in Education. Another finding: children learn more independently at home on days when they enjoy the learning tasks more and find them easier. The results have now been published in the journal Zeitschrift für Erziehungswissenschaft.
