Ziptales is a K-6 literacy platform with fully customized, curriculum aligned websites for Australasia, the UK and USA. Schools, public libraries and home users make up Ziptales’ client base. A school subscription includes a free homework licence and public libraries have always made Ziptales available to their membership at home for free. These features readily allow for ‘offsite’ or remote education.
At the prompting of one of our schools, we have added a ‘COVID19’ information page to our websites, suggesting ways that our resource can assist with distance education.
Some parents have expressed their fears at having to ’home school” but are delighted to find animations and read alouds for the very young and stimulating reading for older children.
