As the Coronavirus pandemic keeps kids away from classrooms, parents are opting for online learning tools and resources for their children.
Children in Kenyan learning institutions were sent home about one and half weeks ago in a bid to protect them from and curb the spread of Coronavirus. It was an unprecedented move that almost left parents’ heads spinning. So since your kids have been home has their learning and studying stopped? Most schools simply sent them home with assignments but syllabus learning has basically halted. Kenyan parents are now realizing that home and online schooling are a thing and discovering its importance.
