Social skill:

At OakEdu, we make the student conscious that she/he is a part of social groups, a member in good standing. In particular, she/he will feel she/he is an important member of the class sessions. Everyday this feeling of belonging to a group will be lightly reinforced. The student will share the goal of the group, usually the classroom, that is excelling in learning, acquiring and sharing knowledge. In order to achieve this social skill, OakEdu maximizes the number and quality of interaction between students and/or tutors, in a cooperative atmosphere. The classroom environment is small and face-to-face talk is consequently very easy. Group rules are agreed upon, everybody can express her/his opinion; the leader, usually the tutor of the session, acts as a referee to decide ultimately in indecisive situations.

When there is more than one student, they can teach, correct and help each other. In real time the knowledge can be shared quickly. Questions fuse and answers emerge, thus building up understanding and teamwork. Worksheet, multiple choices forms and textbooks are easy to hoodwink, but not when the students are talking or explaining, in their own words, "in live". At first the concept has to be clearly understood and if the student can explain it then it is an added clue that the concept is understood. However, given the situation a practice worksheet is required to reinforce, repeat, apply, implement and fix the concept in the mind.

The tutor endeavors to give challenges and projects. Students are encouraged to develop their creativity.
Homeschooled children have ample opportunities for meaningful socialization with their peers through local clubs and classes, community activities, religious involvement and personal relationships with friends. Many cities and towns also have homeschooling support groups that meet regularly to provide additional opportunities. Wesley Taylor of Andrews University (U.S.A.) discovered that children schooled in environments like at home, scored significantly higher than their conventionally-schooled peers on a measure of self-concept, which is generally considered to reflect socialization.
