Online Homework for Elementary Kids
« on: August 27, 2018, 05:45:12 pm »
I was reading the other post and it got me thinking.

Does your child/ren have/had homework that required a computer in elementary school? (Within the last 5 years).
If so, did the school supply the laptop/internet?

My kids didn't start having mandatory online school work until middle school and then they were supplied with a laptop and kids that were low enough income were also supplied with free internet at home.

Yup. Since 3rd grade mandatory computer homework and they did not supply a computer. It is unrealistic to expect to get by without a computer and internet in this day in age. Especially when education is dependent on it.

Some of mine did online schooling at that age so yes they had online work. It was provided for those children but not my others who attended brick and mortar schools.

No. They'd have class assignments that they would do in school on the computer but never had to do it at home. Those assignments were more to track their progress through learning levels and not actually graded. It wasn't until middle school hit that they needed the computer more often for assignments and it was only what they didn't complete in class.

Yes, starting in 4th grade. No the school district did not provide the computers.

They both have. 1st and 5th grade. We have digital days or something like that, so they don't get behind when we have snow days or whatever. I dont know what would happen if you couldn't do it, I've never asked.

Same here. My 7th grader does a lot of his work on the Chromebook in class and at home but my three that are in elementary rarely need to do any computer work.

My kids started having online homework and needing to check their emails in 6th grade. No computers are provided. I guess it’s assumed everyone has a computer.

Occasionally. Our district provides every student with an iPad and I believe there is assistance for those who do not have internet access at home to help them get it. DS (middle school) also had the option of logging into his assignments on our home computer. Which was nice for those times he forgot to bring his iPad home.

Our school is not a big "homework" school so I'm sure all of my kids could have easily gone through 5th grade without ever having access to a computer at home.  They have laptop and desktop computers at school that they use for computer class, typing class, research and the typing/printing of writing assignments. 


By 6th grade everything is on Google classroom and the kids are given an email address and taught how to navigate through school assignments, note taking, doing homework w/ e text books and communicating with teachers, advisors and peers.  Both my older kids got mac books when they started 6th grade.  Little DD is only in 5th but is already using big sister's recently retired "dinosaur".

I have a 7th and 5th grader.  They have homework on school provided chrome books.  No assignment requires the internet.

Our district issues Chromebooks. You're on your own for internet access.

Yes, my DD has had homework that had to be completed online, like where she had to log in to a math website or a science site. And no, the school doesn’t provide a computer or internet. But we live in a “wealthy” area so I think they just assume that everyone has computers and laptops and iPads galore.

Every child k-12 is given a device each school year. They do 90% of their work on it
