Computers and Our Homeschool

CurrClick has a new blog! And, they’ve announced that Mondays are great for blog hopping and this Monday is great for giveaways! Since I’m all about giveaways, I’m entering their blog hop. Besides, since CurrClick carries my line of e-books (check them out!), I figured I’d advertise their new blog.

So, this week’s prompt is how we use computers in our homeschool. I’ll start by saying that we own FOUR laptops–1 for each person in our family! My high schooler uses hers pretty much non-stop, while my 7th grader uses hers a few times throughout the day. I’m on mine pretty much all day as the teacher, as an MA student (English, from ECU in a few years), and as an editor (freelance–my other job). Computers are both a blessing and a bane, depending on how well they’re behaving :-).

Q4U: How do you use computers in your homeschool?

  1. Well, I don't use my computer for homeschool, but I do use it. It has been threatened to get thrown out the window regularly. And did you know that computers have personalities? My computer likes my husband, but it does not like me!!!!!!!!! Other little known facts about computers: they lose things, and may or may not find them for you. You have to ask nicely:) Computers are good for keeping in contact with your children if they live far away AND if they answer their emails:) Love, Mum


  2. Let's see. All of us have laptops though my personal laptop is just used as a back up for when one of the kid's laptops crashes. Then I have my beloved Mac for just about everything and my work laptop for the paying job.My daughter is on hers a lot between school work and fun stuff. Son mostly uses his for school but that's because I have just about everything else blocked! Hubby is a closet Facebook fanatic. I read my blogs, write my own, check email, organize and grade school work, keep the family calendar, etc., etc.It's hard not to have one these days…
