Because of the quarantine brought about by the pandemic, we aren’t able to explore and go on adventures like we did in the previous years. We aren’t allowed to travel for leisure and movement even to malls, resorts, and restaurants are limited. This also means that workshops, classes (that aren’t academic- or school-related), and new learning experiences can’t be held currently due to the quarantine.
But since we live in a day and age that is highly technological, it is now possible to learn new things from your phone, in just one click! (Read: 3 Student-Friendly Apps That Make Online Learning a Breeze)
