Being home-bound is the new normal for people the world over, and a reality we all have to get used to.
But although we know staying home is the best way to stay safe, we can’t help but miss our old lives when there were more things to do and places to go.
Luckily, we have our smartphones to keep us busy. Imagine isolation before the digital era. Exactly – things could be worse. So as long as you’ve got a smartphone in your hand and a suite of Huawei apps, there is no excuse to be bored during the lockdown.
Huawei AppGallery enables you to keep doing many of the things you’re used to doing, but in a different way.
One of the significant aspects of our lives that has changed during lockdown is children being able to go to school.
This has had a big impact on children (and their parents!). Some schools have opted for distance learning, with the assistance of virtual teaching and parent tutoring, while others are simply not able to offer that service.
The Department of Basic Education may extend the break from schooling and adopt a phased-in approach until July, which means that many children will not have access to the formal education they’re used to for a while.
This makes it even more critical for parents and students to be aware of the developments at their school while the education system navigates a way around the rest of the schooling calendar.
The “D6 School Communicator” app, which can be found in Huawei AppGallery, enables better school-parent communication.
As a parent, you can easily stay in touch with the school with just a few swipes. D6 School Communicator provides homework, news, events, as well as other useful resources.
In addition, staying at home does not have to be a boredom sentence for children, nor does it mean they have to sacrifice learning entirely.
It’s very important to keep the younger ones’ minds engaged in this period of little physical and social activity.
Huawei AppGallery has a variety of children’s apps that will keep them entertained, while also learning. That way, you can keep them busy, while you’re focusing on working from home.
