More Coronavirus, More Edutainment Resources


Early on in the pandemic, I shared a variety of resources for keeping your mind engaged while quarantined at home:  March 22 (no need to be bored), March 30 (virtual travel), April 6 (for kids of all ages), April 13 (exercise at home), April 20 (virtual mindfulness).


Here we are, almost a year later (yikes!), and vaccination-for-all is starting to be visible ahead at the end of the tunnel.  As a community, however, we are still not past the need for physical distancing and continued isolation.  And, in the intervening months since my first posts, even more edutainment material has been made available.  Indeed, edutainment may become the post-pandemic norm.


Here is a list of additional ways to learn and be entertained while watching a screen (some are free, some not):


·      Arts and culture
