This would be an idea for an app that shows all the local essential businesses open and how many people are inside (with the help of store).

Tell us about your idea

What's your dream remote learning platform or app?

This would be it since it would take away the hassle of waiting in lines and looking for resources in stores for many.

Along with this ^, the app would allow people to not worry about getting crowded with others, as they can see how many people are in the store.

What part(s) of the pre-COVID school system do you wish to leave in the past? Why?

Homework. It may seem far fetched, but since we have 1 hour 30-minute classes of each subject, we should instead be taught and given worksheets in school, and it would be the student's priority to study for tests at home.

Where are you located?

Hi Wesley Gil 
Thanks for your contribution to this challenge!

I'm curious to learn more about your idea. Would love to get your student perspective on this - how do you envision your idea during the present time demanding remote learning? Are you proposing that this app also tells the users what resources (study materials, stationery, etc) are available and where?
