Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I volunteered with FamilySearch from 2014-2015; much of this volunteer experience was helping patrons set up or recover FamilySearch accounts.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Children ages 8-12 need parent's permission to set up a FamilySearch account; this will require the parent to be available to give consent on the FamilySearch website. Children 13 can set up a FamilySearch account without the parent present.
If permission isn't granted for a child to set up a FamilySearch account, the parent will need to set up an account for themselves and let the child use it. In this case, the parent will need to be present for the class.
Learners will need to enter personal information into the FamilySearch website in order to create an account. Learners should not share personal information with the class. Screen-sharing will not be permitted for learners to protect privacy. If learner runs into issues with account creation that I cannot resolve in the classroom setting, they will be directed to contact FamilySearch support.
