Requesting a Program
Complete the Google Form Below:
Each presentation will need its own request. (For example, if you teach multiple classes, each class would be one request.)
You will need to provide:
- Your name
- Your school
- Grade level
- Number of students in your class
- Name of the video conference program (and the link, if you have it)
- Three preferable dates and times (If you are flexible, there is a spot to include that information)
From there, we will work with the provider to schedule the video conference for you and your students.
If the Request is approved:
- Once tentatively scheduled – you will receive a Google Calendar email notification and it will appear on your Google Calendar
- Changes – will be updated on Google Calendar and email notification
- 1-2 days before – you will receive an email containing the conference connection information
- If available, an Instructional Technology Coach can assist with connecting the conference
- After the program you will be asked to complete a short 5 question survey so we can better assist others with finding programs.
