Yo and Whuddup dudes!
In this post I will be promoting a fun website that you can use during your time in lockdown/quarantine/if you’re bored.
JAM or DIY.org is a very interesting website where you can express your creativeness, explore other people’s works, find a passion, do fun tasks and more. Previously, these were two seperate networks, but now when you sign in/join you can choose to combine the the sites or just use one.
This platform (from now on I’m just going to refer to them as one whole thing, rather than two) is a place where you can complete different activitites from a whole range of subjects. Basically, choose a subject that you are interested in, have a passion for or would like to study, such as History, Camping, Knitting, Mathematics, Cooking, Drawing, Computing, Minecrafting, Meme-posting, Typing, Photography, Beekeeping, Biking, Mechanical Engineering, Singing, Animation, Acting, just to name a tiny fraction of the fields. Next, you can select a mini-activity to complete from each section. Once you complete five activities from a subject, you then can recieve a mini fabric badge/medal from your teacher (assuming that they help you run the program and purchased some of those cool little fabric patches. Yes. They’re fabric. Not gold.)
Those are just a few of the tasks that you could choose to do!
However, one downside is that you need parent’s consolidation in order to join. And I don’t mean just an email adress, a checkbox saying ‘I agree to the terms and conditions…’ or even setting a parent password. To register to DIY.org/JAM, your parents need to input their credit card number. Many guardians may be reluctant to share this information…so yeah. Also, you need to pay money. So yeah, sad life.
Anyways, I’ve used this awesome site (DIY.org I mean) before the JAM merged with it and costed money. I had a lot of fun, and it was really interesting to look at all the amazing tasks we could complete. It was really a diverse experience, and I recommend this to anyone and everyone!!!
