Free Websites to Learn from Home

Hi parents. Are you wondering which websites to use at home during distance learning? The good thing is that your child has already been using technology in the classroom every day. The best thing to do is to use the same websites that the classroom teacher has already introduced. This will help students navigate through a familiar website and find what they need without confusion or frustration. However, one consideration to make could be your internet. If you have multiple people trying to access and download from the internet then it could become taxing on your bandwidth. You might want to contact your current provider if this was an issue, or you could look for alternative companies either similar to viasat internet or ones in your local area to try and find a provider who can accommodate your new requirements. As well as this, you may also wish to have a think about your internet security, especially given that your device is likely to see more and more usage during this time. A good place to start with this could be reading something like these norton vpn reviews to learn about the benefits a VPN can offer you, and potentially help you decide whether this is something you would like to add to your security setup.
