How Outschool Works

Don't see a time that works for you?
When our children develop passions, we want to encourage them, even when (let's be honest) we sometimes get a little bit tired of hearing about the same game for hours on end. In Let's Play Among Us, your kids will spend an hour telling me about their favorite maps, strategies, and games. I will listen and ask questions so they can give me more detailed descriptions and explanations of game mechanics. Discussion between students about these topics is highly encouraged! We will strive towards...
I am a geeky parent to a geeky kid, a gamer wife to a gamer husband - and I love engaging in games and geekery with kids! I have been playing video games for longer than I care to admit, though I enjoy allowing the students to teach me new things, so I often play dumb! ^_^
Learners will need their own installation of Among Us for this class!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Among Us
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Among Us is an extremely popular game that attracts players of all ages and can bring with it the risks of online space. During class time, I monitor students' interactions with other players in our games, but parents should also routinely check in with their students' online activity to ensure their students are playing in a safe manner. I routinely remind students of basic rules of online safety, such as not giving out personal contact information to people online, but I only have your student for one hour a week. We will also regularly review the concepts of fair play as they apply to online interactions. I will also reinforce the necessity of parents checking in on players and having open communication with parents in the event of unwelcome messaging. Again, these are concepts to reinforce with your students, as I only see them one hour per week. Please note that I will never communicate with students directly through Among Us. I use Outschool and Zoom for all teacher-student communications.
