Bridge International Academies (Bridge), has introduced an online remote learning platform, [email protected], which helps pupils learn from resources shared via social media platforms and downloaded from its website while at home.
The platform provides daily reading practice, learning guides and activity sheets of all nursery and primary classes for parents and caregivers to help children learn.
Speaking on the homeschooling initiative, the Director of Academics at Bridge Nigeria, Rhoda Odigboh said Bridge came up with the platform to support families and reduce disruption to learning as much as possible.
Odigboh noted that each day, pupils and parents get learning guide and activities to follow and complete for every subject; daily reading practice of stories downloaded from the African Story Book app; daily homework with answers for parents and caregivers to review and provide feedback.
“It is our alternative source of schooling while schools remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic,” she said.
Speaking on using the platform, a parent, Mrs Ojo Adeola, whose child attends Bridge Academy Oloto Ring Road in Ojo said the [email protected] has kept her son busy.
Concerning the daily reading practice, she said: “I end up reading each story like 10 times because he keeps asking me to read it again.”
Bridge Academies has made the [email protected] learning platform available to all parents in Nigeria whether they attend a Bridge school or not.
