Audience: Educators & Teachers
Add Zeetings to your classroom and your students will love you. This simple tool will transform your presentations.
Powerpoints and PDFs are a popular tool utilised by teachers to present lesson information and content to their students. What if you could transform these presentations by making them interactive and dynamic? Well, you can, using Zeetings, which is a powerful presentation tool that empowers your students to get involved directly from their own device in real-time.
Zeetings allows you to run live Q & As; conduct real-time polls with 5 question formats; run a survey; do a class brainstorm and more. Students can also follow the slides as you present them and take notes so they don't miss a thing. All this interactivity is added directly into your presentation making for a more engaging and motivating lesson. Also, your students can use Zeetings for their presentations too!
This course will teach you how to use Zeetings, and how to create your own dynamic lesson content using the Zeetings’ technology. Best practice ideas about how to get students involved and how to boost engagement in the classroom will also be shared.
