Fun Zoom Activities for Kids

Friends on Facebook have shown videos and pictures of their kids having Zoom classroom time with their teachers and classmates. It’s been adorable to see all their little faces on the screens and to see how excited they are to see their friends. Some teachers aren’t sure what’s the best way to use Zoom because maybe they’ve never used it before or haven’t used it for this purpose.

Zoom Tricks and Hacks for Teachers and Kids

On Facebook, several teachers have been sharing tips, tricks and hacks on how to make Zoom work better.

Krissy Venosdale showed how to set up a makeshift document camera, using her phone, a laptop and some properly placed soups cans. By logging into Zoom on your phone and setting it up above the area you’re writing, your phone will remain stable and your students will be able to see what you’re writing. This Zoom hack could work for anyone that is doing a Zoom call and needs to write things out and have them seen on screen.
