 1 file available upon enrollment
You may choose to print a note-taking page to fill in during the presentation. I recommend storing the page from each week in a binder to make a reference booklet.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Students will need to have access to https://bingobaker.com/, https://www.drawasaurus.org/, and https://jamboard.google.com during class.  None of these require an account, and links will be provided during class through the Zoom chat feature to access the sites when needed.

- Students will also need to have access to http://padlet.com.  Student may choose to post anonymously on Padlet using their first name only in the title of the post, or they may choose to create an account (with parent permission) so that their name appears on their posts automatically.  Activity notifications are available from Padlet when an account is used.  For privacy purposes please only the student's first name when setting up an account.  

- The breakout room feature in Zoom will be used during class.  Students will be broken up into small groups for a brief (5-8min) conversation with other learners in the class.  Students will be provided with rules and expectations prior to entering breakout rooms, and the instructor will circulate through these groups to monitor and facilitate student conversation.
