Rosetta Stone (Language Learning) free for Students during the C19 issue.

Note: This actually works for everybody - it doesn't even confirm your email address or school, so if you have been wanting to learn a new language and/or check out Rosetta Stone, now is your chance to do so (Account is valid for 3 months...unknown what happens after that time)

Note 2: This also gives you full access to the Android (and iOS one if that have it) App so you can learn on the go!

For anybody trying to keep their kids amused whilst all the schools are closed for the foreseeable future (and, anybody learning languages or just likes audiobooks), Audible just opened a LOT of books to everybody, for free...no login, no credit cards, no messing around...just click..look...listen!

Note: This is mainly children's stories, but there are also classic literature ones and there are books available in multiple languages.

If anybody else finds some great resources, feel free to post them in here!

"... Before school closures, our Treehouse (after-school virtual reality clubs) have been very well received.

Clubs have included getting children to virtually kayak down rivers to learn about how they develop and to explore volcanoes to discover more about their geology.

Given the current pressures on schools due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to now teach these lessons virtually ...":
