Schoolr is a new site that aims to take the pressure of parents during the Covid-19 Pandemic

A new site has been launched and is looking for people to help out. Schoolr is a project that hopes to provide a valuable resource for parents who are suddenly finding themselves in a position where they not only have to learn to work remotely but also educate their children at the same time.

The creators of the site are currently looking for volunteers to get involved in creating short knowledge sharing videos aimed at children that they hope will engage and educate children who often end up falling down the rabbit hole of YouTube gaming videos and Netflix.

In their introductory post, the site asks for anyone to contact them who would like to get involved in creating videos from their home via a basic webcam that can then be vetted and shared via the Schoolr site and YouTube channel. They're looking for contributions on any subject from art and music to academic teachings. They're also looking for story readers for pre-schoolers and those who may need additional support.

If you have a little bit of knowledge to share with children and help ease that home schooling burden for parents, pop on over to the Schoolr website for more details.

We need your help

Running a website like The Digital Fix - especially one with over 20 years of content and an active community - costs lots of money and we need your help. As advertising income for independent sites continues to contract we are looking at other ways of supporting the site hosting and paying for content.

You can help us by using the links on The Digital Fix to buy your films, games and music and we ask that you try to avoid blocking our ads if you can. You can also help directly for just a few pennies per day via our Patreon - and you can even pay to have ads removed from the site entirely.
