Zoom Essentials for the Classroom

3 Credits
Zoom is a widely used learning, interactive mobile-learning platform that engages students with multiple collaboration tools. Students explore and apply tools that are basic to the Zoom platform to provide the needed interactive experiences for learners. Zoom unifies cloud video conferencing, simple online meetings, and group messaging into one easy to use platform. It is a tool that allows you to host a one-on-one or team meeting easily which can be a vital support to all students. Zoom can be programmed to create a video recording of the entire lesson for students to view again and again at a later date and time. This will be the first course of two. The second course will guide the students through advanced, engaging and very active learning experiences to share with online classrooms. Both courses will use the same textbook which is available through multiple sources.

NOTE: Required book must be acquired separately.

This course is applicable towards the Online Teaching Certificate.

The courses I teach will provide you with multiple ideas and resources to guide the students you teach to foster their desire to learn, and to provide them with the necessary tools so that they may develop to their full potential. As you know, all children are unique, with differing interests, learning styles, skills and abilities, therefore, we must meet their needs to challenge them to be critical thinkers. As you complete this class I am here to support you, guide you, and share my many years of experiences teaching children and adult learners! My favorite teaching quote: “Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” ~Ben Franklin
