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.
The much-awaited concert of The Voice Kids Season 4 finalist and World Championships of the Performing Arts (WCOPA) Champion Gaea Mischa Salipot will happen online this June 27.
Titled “I Believe: A Virtual Concert for a Cause,” the virtual concert aims to raise funds for the benefit of St. Rita Orphanage in Parañaque, a small sanctuary for children who have been left abandoned by their parents.
“I’m thankful that God has now given me the opportunity to share my talent and be an instrument to help others,” said Gaea. “This pandemic has taught us kids to be more caring to our family and to others in our community. I believe that all of us can do something for each other in our own little ways. I want to be of help to fellow children especially those who need extra care and support. And I hope that more people can join in to help.”
Produced by Ditse Productions, Inc and Rose Sheane TV Finland in collaboration with CyberPinoy Radio Canada, “I Believe” will be held online via Gaea’s official Facebook Page and YouTube Channel on June 27 (Sunday) at 7PM PH Time.
Under the musical direction of ECHO MUSIC, Gaea’s special guests include YouTube celebrity and singer-songwriter Mikey Bustos and the OLPGV Choir.
Gaea Mischa is a mutli-award winning performer who is best known for being The Voice Kids Philippines Season 4 finalist from Team Sarah of Sarah Geronimo and Team Lea of Lea Salonga. Gaea has also been named the WCOPA 2018 Champion and SM Little Stars 2017 Girl Grand Winner.
The COVID-19 outbreak has caused not only economic downturn around the globe, but also educational disruptions, as most governments were forced to close schools to stop the spread of the virus.
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.
