Being cooped up at home for longer periods of time during this pandemic may be boring and challenging even for children. Now that they are spending less time on face-to-face activities, we need to be creative in making sure they still get plenty of stimulation and entertainment at home.
Although limiting their screen time on their gadgets and computers is also a must, it cannot hurt to allow them to play online games from time to time to help pass the time and ward off boredom.
One website you might want to consider exploring with your little ones is plays.org. It is one-stop website for all your online game needs. Here are 5 things I love about it:
First and foremost, plays.org website is very user-friendly. It features free unblocked html games that can easily accessed through your browser, without even having to download an app. It will not need a seasoned gamer to figure the site out and even gaming noobs or parents who are not too keen on technology and gaming can easily find their way around the games it offers.

As the pandemic is shaping the educational paradigm, Acer Philippines, the country’s leading computer brand in the PC market, has been at the forefront in ensuring that its Acer Academy program members will continue to benefit from the advancements of its EdTech capacity, amid the modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ).
Acer recently launched a webinar ~ in partnership with school administrators, educators, and stakeholders who are adept in educational computerization ~ to tackle the challenges in the “new normal” and provide opportunities for innovations in the field of e-learning to facilitate the continuity of education.
The webinar garnered a total of 1,077 online registrants, which indicate a growing public interest in subject matters relating to new learning platforms amid the pandemic.
