this lockdown has pushed us to look for new opportunities to propagate educate using technologies that we already had in our arsenal.

Odd to browse through this thread a year later....

At least mildly on topic... I've had my grandson set up using a Pi for remote school since the current school year started in August. The local district is using Google Meet and that runs in Chromium just fine.

Hardware specs:
Pi4B4 running RPiOS32
RPF Pi4 case with RPF case fan
16GB SanDisk A-1 class uSD card
PiCamera v2.0, 12" camera cable, Adafruit camera holder, 6" tripod
USB headset adapter (for both headphones and the attached mic)
Logitech K120 keyboard
Logitech Marbleman trackball
Dell 19" 1280x1024 monitor
Cat-6 Ethernet cable to a GbE switch (and from there to the cable modem/router)
Official RPF PSU
RPF uHDMI to HDMI cable and Monoprice HDMI to DVI adapter

Thanks for the "New Normal" reminder.
Our latest lockdown curfew starts at 5pm today.
Must remember to take the new webcam home as well.
Kid starts the Easter holidays 3 days early, but he has a laptop this year.

It's been about six months, but I'm interested to know what impressions you and children have from distance learning? What if I have to re-introduce lockdown and distance learning soon? I hope that there will be no more long periods of distance learning, as this has affected the quality of learning and motivation to do tasks. Since I did not leave the house for a long time, I began to be very lazy and spend little time studying. I had to use https://edubirdie.com/lab-report-writing-service to perform my mandatory task, because that way I would have problems and rescheduling. However, this service helped me a lot and I successfully survived that period. I'm in class now, so it's a lot more interesting and fun.
Thanks for the reply!
