With nationwide school closures due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have ushered in a new era of online teaching and learning in earnest. Online learning is no longer a choice, but a necessity.
In addition to remote learning from schools, live online enrichment classes for children are also in urgent demand. In a recent survey conducted by 6crickets, 320 parents responded in just a few days. 75% of them shared that there is no remote learning or don’t know if there is any remote learning from their schools. 95% of them expressed needing live online enrichment classes. Parents commented “Interactivity and fun for kids are key.”, “We need solutions and online classes now urgently.”, “Working parents would gladly accept any help! ”, “I think the biggest gap right now is social - my child needs to be able to connect with a teacher and with other kids in a meaningful (and fairly quiet) way.”
6crickets.com, a central hub for children’s camps and classes, has quickly mobilized and enabled its platform to support live online classes. 6crickets makes it simple for parents to find and register for live online classes from quality providers or teachers specializing in STEM, art, chess, foreign languages, debate, sewing, cooking, tutoring and much more at 6crickets.com/online.
In addition, 6crickets is supporting local enrichment businesses, passionate teachers and parent volunteers to take their teaching online through a popular weekly webinar, blog on “How to offer an engaging, live online class for K-12 students”, and an Enrichment Provider Community Facebook group to share challenges and experiences. It is amazing how the enrichment education community is mobilizing to creatively adapt to the new normal. We now see hundreds of exceptional live online programs at 6crickets supporting students and families.
"Although we are social distancing, our students and families can continue learning in a social and engaging way while immersed in wonderful enrichment, thanks to technology and the Internet." says 6crickets CEO and Co-founder, Helen Wang.
Coronavirus may have closed our schools, but it cannot stop learning.
