Parents are naturally concerned and perhaps even anxious about the impact that school closures will have on their children’s educational progress during the COVID-19 pandemic. While many schools and dedicated teachers across the country have committed to continuing lessons online for learners in primary and high school, parents looking for additional peace of mind can find it online.
Thanks to the wealth of educational material available online – from apps to YouTube lessons and more – parents can help to minimise the disruption caused by school closures, ensuring their child takes advantage of every learning avenue available to them through digital platforms.
“With the help of an unlimited, reliable, super-fast fibre connection at home, learners and their parents can minimise the disruption brought about in the wake of COVID-19, and make the most of this time,” says Lianne Williams, mother of two and head of Marketing at Vuma.
Here are a few resources to consider and introduce to your children while at home.
The ‘new normal’ we all face over the next couple of weeks does not mean learning needs to stop – in fact, it’s an opportunity to ensure your child stays ahead of the educational curve while spending time at home, putting them in good stead for achieving learning outcomes and securing a brighter future.
Fibre to the home offerings from Vuma and its wide network of Internet Service Provider (ISP) partners ensures that the online learning experience is as effective and enjoyable as it should be. Additionally, from the 1 April 2020, Vuma along with participating ISP partners will be upgrading the line speeds of its existing users on the network at no additional cost to enable seamless educational (and entertainment) services.
