Schools in the UAE will be closed for four weeks starting on March 8, 2020, as a preventative measure to help stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.  During this time schools will be required to facilitate home learning for at least two weeks out of the four. Many schools have already put plans in place, while others are still searching for the right resources to help them in this endeavour.

Below is a list of resources which can help make this period less stressful for both teachers and students. Many paid-for applications are also now being made available free of charge during this period. Take time to go through the list and feel free to contact us with more resources as they become available so that we can keep this list updated.
