Cybersky Kids Channel is up and running. It now has several videos of music, videos and performances, all from the students of Mr. Cybersky. Make sure you subscribe and check back often, as more videos will be uploaded, including student-made beats, “Where are they now?” videos about what former students who are now adults are doing today (my first elementary students are now 38 years old!), music videos, documentary footage of them in Mr. Cybersky’s class years ago learning music, technology, Rubik’s Cube and more!!
Some educators support switching to a new platform, like Microsoft Teams orGoogle Meet,while others want to continue to usingZoom, since teachers, parents and students know how to use it. In my opinion, there is no video conferencing website that is un-hackable and teachers can make mistakes moderating online classes no matter what software they are using. Zoom made changes that took effect April 5, 2020, which make using Zoom for education a lot safer.
There are also settings and strategies educators can use to conduct lessons using Zoom safely. That is what is covered here. In this video I walk you through some important settings to use, to prevent uninvited guests from entering your meetings with students and prevent students or other guests from sharing anything without approval of the host or teacher.
At the end I give you some tips on “Virtual Classroom Management”.
Let me know what I missed, what other strategies you use to keep your Zoom meetings safe and secure and what topics I should cover next.Leave a comment under this video and I will respond. And don’t forget to smash that LIKE button, Subscribe and Ring the Bell.
