Talking Tools:

Session #1: Zoom Features for Engagement
Speech-language pathologists are masters of student engagement. Whether in the classroom or the speech room, in groups or one-on-one, we have the ability to boost positive participation and encourage rigorous effort. However, many of us may be stymied as to how we continue this level of engagement within the virtual environment. This session of “Talking Tools” will focus on how to use Zoom’s built-in engagement tools to maximize student participation in virtual speech sessions. Tools discussed will include polls, annotation, remote sharing, and more! Ready to create more engaging Zoom sessions? Me too! See you at Talking Tools!

No credit will be offered. The purpose of these sessions are to have an opportunity to discuss step by step how to use the features of a particular tool. This is an opportunity to ask how to utilize a specific tool.  We will record the sessions in case you are unable to attend.
