Over the years your children create many wonderful sometimes questionable artwork and school projects if your anything like me you may find it hard to just let go of it while tidying up the house. Yes, this macaroni art is going a little moldy, but my child made it how can I part with it? If I throw it out am I not being supportive?
Well never fear! There are many space-saving, non-moldy alternatives to saving many of your children’s beautiful work.
Photo Album: Snap a picture of your child’s work and save it on your phone, computer, online, or print it and turn it into a physical photo album. This is especially great for those larger projects like dioramas.
Labeled Boxes: For every school year create a box labeled which school year it is i.e Kaitlyn: Kindergarten Age: 5. A plastic box helps to protect their work for years to come and by keeping it organized it is easier to recall when each project was created. Unfortunately for this option, you are limited by space (Sorry Diorama!) so you’ll have to only pick what fits.
These boxes don’t have to be ugly plastic storage bins. There are many pre-decorated bins you can purchase at wal-mart or the dollar store.
Filing Folders: Those large accordion filing folders you use for your taxes can be used as a great way of keeping and organizing your child’s work.
What is Android Go?
Google hopes to make this a more enjoyable experience by offering a separate lighter version of Android and its apps. The first version of Android Go is based on Android Oreo 8 and is intended to run on phones with as little as 512MB to 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of storage.
That is a big difference between most of the flagship phones we are accustomed to using. In contrast flagship phones typically come with anywhere from 4 to 8GB of RAM and use up to 4 to 8 times as much storage.

W5Go & Android GO!
W5Go’s primary purpose is to make quality education available to everyone. This means we put a lot of effort into making our apps available for all phones, whether the phone is worth $50 or $2500. We want to provide children with a fun learning experience, introducing them to the basics of Augmented and Virtual reality, while exploring exciting topics and supplementing their traditional education.
By creating our apps to suit Android GO software we are giving children from lower income areas their right to learn! Just because a child does not have the newest iPhone does not mean they don’t have the right to education and the chance to explore fundamental Augmented and virtual reality.
