Today, despite the pandemic, another homeschool summit is going to be held. It'll be from July 30 to August 1. Though I have been homeschooling for nine years now, I still feel the need to be equipped and encouraged; that is why I can't wait for this online summit.
A 3-day online summit happening on July 30-August 1 is set to equip families who face another school year of home-based learning. The summit is organized by a local group of homeschooling moms who have been supporting families since 2013 through their empowering events.
MANILA, Philippines — July 8, 2021 — Educating for Life (EFL), the organizer of national homeschool conferences in the Philippines since 2014, and the creator of the Philippine Homeschool Convention and Connect Homeschooling and Intentional Parenting Summit (CHIPS), is proud to present CHIPS 2021: Thrive at Home or simply #CHIPSThriveAtHome.
Driven by this same objective to help families, #CHIPSThriveatHome will feature bite-sized learning sessions for families who are already homeschooling, exploring or preparing for homeschooling, or struggling with the challenges of their kids learning at home via distance learning.
With talks focused on the sub-themes Thrive In Your Mind, Thrive in Learning, and Thrive in Family Relationships, EFL hopes to equip families with strategies for joyful homeschooling and distance learning. Through the specific parenting and family life topics of #CHIPSThriveAtHome, EFL hopes that more families will be able to cope—and even thrive—despite the pandemic.
