Now to our "Gma" cover story. We've heard from experts about remote learning, whether or not it works or if it's good for schoolchildren. Now we're hearing from someone who really knows, a kid trying to do it. ABC's zohreen shah has the story. Reporter: With the school year well under way, many kids across the country are settling into a unique year learning remotely, so third grader Nolan Wu decided to keep track of it all, documenting his school life, recording the ups. The best thing about this is I can do it anywhere. Reporter: And the downs of remote learning. I'm really frustrated. Distance learning, I don't like it. I can't make any friends, new friends because when you do recess, you really get to know people. Reporter: But the 8-year-old says he's adjusted to the unexpected change. I was not used to this much work and not having some help. Now I'm doing very good. I think there's definitely been challenges. Reporter: And the wus are not parenting expert Rachel Simmons says, remote schooling is a learning curve for everyone sharing some tips as many continue to learn from home. First, stick to a solid routine. We have to create a space where they know this is where the learning happens. Ideally, it should be a place that they can go to every day around the same time and not a place where a lot of other stuff is happening. Reporter: Second, focus your attention when it's time to learn and manage time. It's better to have 30 minutes of calm learning with your child than 45 minutes or 60 minutes of you being cranky and angry with each other. Your child is not going to learn if they're anxious and upset and you're not going to teach well either. Reporter: And finally, EP the kids active mentally and physically. When they can get those needs met, when kids can sleep well, exercise and also spend time with other kids, they will learn more effectively. Reporter: Zohreen shah, ABC news, Los Angeles. And no question it has been a struggle and a learning experience for so many families across the country. I know. It's so hard on many of these kids. We really appreciate him making those videos.
