Technology Requirements:

This is an interactive program, so your students will need to be able to see and hear us, and we will need to see and hear them, too. To facilitate this, you will need:

  • Computer or iPad with a stable internet connection - please have your iPad secured in a stand or holder. A wired internet connection is recommended, as Wi-Fi can be slow and spotty.
  • Webcam - you may use your computer's camera if it has one.
  • Large screen TV or projector and screen connected to the computer or iPad. Please do not dim the lights in the room so we can see your group.
  • Speakers - external speakers are recommended so that all students in the room can hear clearly.
  • Microphone - you may use your computer's microphone if it has one, but an external microphone is recommended.
  • Platform - ZOOM (Preferred platform), FaceTime (iOS) or Google Meet, Webex, Microsoft Teams, and others.

We will set up a technology test session with you between one week to two days before the program to test the connection and so you can test your complete system including sound, microphone, and projection.
