Goodnight Zoom is a new platform designed for seniors feeling isolated in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. The platform connects seniors with children (or anyone in need of contact) for a remote storytelling session. The platform will also provide a story if participants are in need of one. Goodnight Zoom was launched in an effort to "make people valued and connected" and provide the benefits of literacy development that telling stories gives children.
Goodnight Zoom is easy to use. Simply sign up as a reader or parent of children and choose a time. Next, the platform will send a profile of a well-suited reader and a link to the video meeting for both parties to join at the arranged time.
