Sync are happy to announce the launch of HomeSchool – a series of free ‘how to’ classes aimed at helping the nation’s IT stressed parents.
HomeSchool will launch on 25th February and will run via Zoom. Each 30-minute online session will provide parents with simple tools to help capitalise on the home-schooling experience. Including fun and educational activities that build on the work children are learning in school.
Whether you are an IT Wizz or a complete beginner, the series will teach parents how to make the most of the tech their children are using. How to master online searches, and make homeschooling sessions more fun and productive for all.
But parents need to be quick as places will be allocated on a first come first served basis, sign-ups for the courses can be accessed here.
HomeSchool is split into three age categories, covering primary, junior and, secondary school learning for parents with children aged 5-8, 9-12 and, 13-15 years old.
The sessions will also feature a virtual noticeboard for parents to post about their experiences. Offering advice to other parents on the course via Padlet.
Despite the challenges faced by many industries over the last year, we have managed to provide tech experience solutions to more customers than ever before. In 2020 we delivered over 110 free skills-based virtual training sessions to businesses and key workers in lockdown, in an attempt to help navigating the shift from physical to remote technologies.
On the new HomeSchool initiative, Sync Commercial Director Chris Costello said:
“Over lockdown, we’ve helped thousands of businesses adapt to the new flexible and home working conditions.
“Now we aim to make life easier for the thousands of parents who are juggling both their day jobs and homeschooling.
“We’re hoping that parents will learn to enjoy the time of home learning with their children and not see it as a chore. With the right tech solutions and training from some of the best in the business, parents will make the most of their home-schooling experience”
