Web Conferences and Zoom

To access the LEARNZ Zoom Room:

  1. Click on the link supplied in the field trip newsletter #3
  2. Wait until the Host joins.
  3. Enable your microphone.
  4. Introduce yourself.
  5. Watch and listen to the web conference.
  • After the formal web conference the meeting room will remain open to allow you to put extra questions into the chat pod and have them answered, live. For online safety (https://www.netsafe.org.nz/the-kit/), we suggest only teachers access the live web conference - collect student questions through a separate shared document then copy-and-paste into the chat pod.
  • Web conference activity for students: Students can work on this activity while they listen to live or recorded web conferences - | PDF (167k) | Google Doc. Activity notes could be shared to help put together a class web conference summary.
  • Create a web conference summary. Making a class summary of a web conference is a great way of reviewing the information your students heard. Feel free to create your own template or use the webconference summary sheet - PDF (114k) | Google doc. We'd love to share your ideas so please send your class summary to shelley.hersey@core-ed.org.
