The temporal closure of schools around the world to limit the spread of the COVID-19 has
resulted in massive educational disruptions triggering adverse effects and bringing much of
education under grave threat. All too sudden, the ambit of the educational sector has landed itself
in a defining situation where issues of structural inequality and exclusion are seriously being
scrutinised and debated upon. Well underway are global dialogues that hold conversations on
implementing mitigation strategies to counter the looming global health crisis. This has
generated the impetus for a more concerted effort by concerned governments and international
organisations to identify appropriate solutions for the continuity of learning so that the learning
never stops. While educators and learners plunge further into the core of reconstructing
education, we recognise that the fundamentals of technology and virtual connectivity have all
along contributed to the multi-faceted e-learning stage set. However, concerns regarding the
paradigm shift to remote online learning would certainly exacerbate inequalities cardinally felt
across disadvantaged communities around the globe. As the world is currently bound by strict
isolation measures, learners of all ages have been relegated to the confines of their homes. For
the most part, the stark realities of technological mishaps that have befallen underprivileged
school children, serve as a reminder to help target children all over the world who are in most
peril of losing ground in terms of continued education. It is on these grounds that the criterion set
out in this article elucidates the nature and scope of a supplementary stay-home game plan
detailing the use of game affordances that bear intelligently in the creation of home-based
activities for parents to give it their best effort in fostering a collaborative and meaningful parent-child relationship that spawns the new language of Literacy in the New Norm.
