5 Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling at Lake Bridgeport




If COVID-19 has you virtually schooling your children for the 2020-21 school year, it may be possible for you to educate them while you enjoy a vacation. Lake Bridgeport is an awesome getaway for the family that enjoys water recreational activities like boating and fishing. Since returning to school this year, over 2,000 Texas public school students have tested positive for COVID-19, which is further motivation for many parents to undertake virtual schooling.

Life Hacks for Virtual Schooling

If you’ve decided to school your children virtually this year, try these learning hacks as you enjoy some family time at Lake Bridgeport.

  1. Create virtual school workstations - To cut down on distractions and keep your children focused on learning, take a cue from one mom who created virtual workstations for her children simply using presentation boards.
  2. Set up a cell phone charging center - One distraction many public schools have reported in recent years are personal cell phones in the classrooms. Students end up spending more time texting with each other than doing class work. While public school teachers may not be able to take phones, Mom can. Set up a charging station for your entire family and keep all the phones at that one location in the house. Students can have them at break time.
  3. Establish a home network - If your children log into virtual school on multiple devices throughout the day, you can save a lot of time by networking your devices to allow students to login to virtual school quickly from any device.
  4. Ask if your school gives credit for life experiences - Many colleges and universities offer students credit for life experiences. Since students in primary and secondary schools frequently take field trips and get learning credit for them, ask your virtual school administrator if a trip to Lake Bridgeport would qualify as learning credit. You never know, they may say “Yes.”
  5. Stream classroom training to your TV - If you have a smart TV, you may be able to stream Zoom classroom meetings and other online lectures to your TV. If you don't have a smart TV, you can still stream live video to your television with a wifi adapter.

Enjoy Virtual Schooling at Lake Bridgeport

Just because you’re schooling your children from home doesn’t mean you have to stay at home. Take your family to Lake Bridgeport for a week and let your children participate in online learning during the day while enjoying some quality recreational time in the afternoon and evening. Lake Bridgeport has some incredible cabins and family getaways you can rent while your children gain the benefits of virtual schooling and do some fishing and boating.

Fishing Report from TPWD (Jan. 19)

GOOD. Water stained; 52 degrees; 3.83 feet low. The weather should cooperate this weekend with mild winds and rising temperatures after the cold front. Largemouth bass are slow on crankbaits and underspins are fished very slowly. Sand and hybrid bass are good on the deadstick technique, fair on slabs. Both work best when fished with little or no movement in cold water. Don't be afraid to move around to different depths as the fish are doing the same thing. Keep an eye out for Gulls to help you find the fish. Blue Catfish are good on cut gizzard shad, drifting deeper water near the river channel. Crappie are fair on minnows and jigs in deeper water near docks and the HWY 380 bridge. Report by Keith Bunch, Lake Bridgeport Guide Service.
