Top 3 lockdown technologies

COVID-19 has impacted the world and changed the way we interact. As cities shut down and people engage in social distancing,  technology has become essential to connect with others as well as to limit the spread of the virus.

We have picked our top 3 lockdown technologies:

1) Spraying drones

Our outlook on hygiene is probably changed forever, with compulsive hand washing and keeping a two metre distance from others becoming the norm, the French nation may never do ‘la bise’ again!  The authorities have not stopped at teaching us hygiene, they have also turned to disinfecting cities and it’s now common to see out of our window or on the internet, workers in protective suits spraying disinfectant in streets. There is much debate about the actual effectiveness of this as well as over the safety of the workers themselves, the UAE have at least found a solution for the latter by using spraying drones

2) Houseparty

We can probably all agree that everything we are currently enduring would be worse without social media. Thanks to the likes of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, we can still keep in touch with the world as well as our loved ones. Previously less known apps are now thriving, some by offering us virtual visits to museums and countries, others by enabling digital get togethers and parties – like Houseparty. The app is a face-to-face social network where you can connect with people effortlessly, it even alerts you when your friends are “in the house” and ready to chat so you can jump right into the conversation/party

3) LiveClass

Now that we find ourselves with more time on our hands, we can finally learn the language we have always dreamed of speaking! Furthermore for parents who dread teaching their children, online education is fast becoming everyone’s best friend. Beware however, online education is booming and the choice can be hard as well as unsafe. Hacking has been reported with Zoom users and untrained teachers who do not know how to use the technology.  This is why we have selected a safe platform that has been designed specifically for online teaching and we train all our native language teachers prior to their first lesson. Live Class is also available as an app on Android and Apple Store. It allows users to know their upcoming sessions and to chat on LiveClass messaging, making online language learning easy.
