You may use your personal device to connect. Alternatively, you could connect using your student’s district-issued device.
Locate the Zoom link provided by the teacher.
Check your settings, ensure that your video camera is on and you are not muted. You can do an audio and microphone check in advance; this is recommended. Most students are very familiar with the Zoom platform and may be able to offer assistance.
If you are having issues connecting, try restarting your device to refresh the settings.
Most teachers will utilize the “waiting room” feature. When you join the Zoom meeting and the Waiting Room is being used, you will see a message stating that you are in the waiting room. When the conference before you is finished, the teacher will connect to you. You do not need to do anything; just relax until it’s your turn.
