Remote Schooling SOS
Helping you rise to the challenge of lockdown learning
What’s the best device for home learning? How can I help my child while also doing my own work? How much should they do each day? Why doesn’t my Wi-Fi work?
Parents have many questions right now – and that’s why we’ve launched Remote Schooling SOS, a weekly live show on YouTube that will bring them the answers.
Each week, your hosts – Parent Zone CEO Vicki Shotbolt and Dave Coplin, the internationally renowned tech expert and author of The Rise of the Humans – will bring you tips, tricks and hacks to improve your remote-learning setup, with help from special guests from the world of education and tech.
