 More than 770 million learners worldwide are now being affected by school and university closures, according to the United Nations. In this situation many parents faced with to home-schooling their children. While many traditional schools provide students with access to online education during a shutdown, supplementing with other tools can help kids explore interests they don’t have time for during the school year.

We advice to use a mix of free and paid resources like, and to give your kids (ages 3-18) a full range of classes.  Exciting articles and stories, videos, and fun learning challenges are expecting for children. They can work on their own or together with you and your family.

Being Social is very important for children. Kids need to interact with their peers and extended family members, but how can children play without potentially spreading disease? Caribu, the family-friendly video-calling app, is helping bridge the gap created by social distancing and self-isolation. With Caribu, kids can share stories, play games and even color together during a video call.

If you are looking for something to keep the kids occupied when they are home from school during the coronavirus outbreak. Walt Disney Imagineers are inspiring creativity, curiosity and innovation through Imagineering in a Box, a free online program created in partnership with the Khan Academy and Pixar. This one-of-a-kind learning experience gives families a chance to dream, create and build right from home. 

Are You Keeping Kids Active Indoors? If being outdoors is a safe option, fit in time for running, hikes or bike rides. But if it isn’t, it’s possible for kids to stay active even when indoors. They can use exercise playing games like Just Dance Now on their laptop and a phone, that registers how well they move to the beat. Another way to stay active is child-friendly yoga poses and workouts on this YouTube kids app.

People are all spending a little more time at home than usual so it’s a good reason to inculcate life skills in the kids, too. Teaching children to navigate the kitchen along with basic cooking and baking skills is not only useful but fun! There are a lot of programs that help to spend family time in the heart of the home. For example, families can visit Raddish to order their free kit and also access free content including an at-home cooking camp program, recipes your kids can make with pantry staples and additional learning extensions across science, geography, language, and more.

Create precious family moments by spending time with your kids during the outbreak period. You can play or watch movie gathering all family members but to develop skills together is more useful and interesting like, for example, learning languages. Our expert team has great experience in developing educational apps. One of them is LabbaYo language app.

LabbaYo language app is the only kids’ app that works with proprietary LabbaYo Language Flash Cards to allow children to HEAR and SAY the words to practice their pronunciation. Beautifully drawn images are designed to engage and captivate children. The app is initially offered in Spanish, English, and French.

It’s a fun new way for children (age 3+) and the whole family to learn new languages using smartphones, tablets and physical flash cards.
