How The Class Will Run
We're incredibly excited to be welcoming your students onto our online classes and we've got an exciting class planned for them. 24 hours before your class you will receive an email straight away with detailed instructions on how the class will run and how to get set up. Here is some information about how the class will run:
Group Video Call
When it comes to completing the challenges, students will join a private video call to work with their 3-4 group members. Facilitators will be joining these calls to work with the students as they develop their ideas.
Online Collaboration Board
To complete their challenges students will be working with their group members on an online whiteboard to brainstorm ideas and present their solutions. This tool will open in their browser and will let them record ideas quickly and easily.
Online Communication Channel
Throughout the class, students will be using an online communication tool similar to a chat room. This is a team tool used to allow students to work with their group and contact facilitators.
All of the tools above are online and don't require students to download any software. Students will be able to do everything in one browser and we will have facilitators working with students to ensure they can use the tools easily throughout the program.
What You'll Need
We've got an action-packed program planned for the students and we ask that they have the following equipment ready before they join the class.
A Computer + Webcam + Charger
All students will need their own laptop/PC computer with a webcam and we recommend charging it during the class.
We recommend all students completing the programs have a pair of headphones with a microphone.
A Notebook And Pen
We recommend students have some pen and paper nearby if they want to take physical notes or draw things on paper.
A Quiet Space With Strong Internet
Background noise is always distracting for others on a call and a strong internet connection is very important.
Google Chrome Installed
We ask that all students install the Google Chrome browser on their device before joining the class.
This isn't a requirements, but we would highly recommend you download the free Zoom app on your device for improved experience.
