using zoom
 
I am considering using zoom as a help line with the kids I tutor since I cannot see them in person. I have never used it before.

My concern is I don't want the kids to have access to my phone or email. (which is why I can't just FaceTime)

I plan to set up specific times where they can contact me if they need help.

Will zoom work for me?

Yes, it will.

We have been using it some the past week just to see how it operates. Starting Monday I'm going to be online from 10-10:45 every day for kids to stop in and ask questions or chat.

I also set up a Google Voice number so I can call parents and students without them having my phone number. Mine also contact me through email, Remind, and Google Classroom.

Probably Not
 
When I was invited to a Zoom meeting, I received the link through an email. That email had her name and email address.

Be careful!
 
We were instructed to make sure you see a parent with the child when they log on or itís considered being alone on a room with them. We have very strict child protection policy. You all probably do, too!

Be careful.

Thanks for sharing! I'm guessing because you are in a Catholic School, this has been brought up with Virtus requirements, diocesan requirements, etc. I was wondering this same thing, but our system hasn't said a word about live feeds, but I was definitely wondering. Our tech person is a Virtus trainer/teacher, so I may contact her or my principal and ask, but I don't want to overwhelm them either, as I am sure their e-mails are going crazy as it is.

I can totally see if it is the teacher and one student in a video chat, how that would be like being alone with a student. What about a teacher and multiple students? Isn't that like a classroom on most days? I suppose just as a precaution, I could have my aid, my teaching partner, principal, lit. coach, or special ed. teacher join the hangout, too, as a precaution, so there are 2 adults.

Just make a new gmail account and use it for Zoom only. :)

Permission slips
 
I asked my friend who is in a public school in N.j, and they need to get permission slips signed. Maybe your district will get parental permission fir whatever venue your using. They will be using google chat, they already use google classroom.

Good luck!

Thanks, Munchkins
 
Thanks, Munchkins. I'm getting a little worried, so I think I will just do a pre-recorded thing for now!
