Free Zoom and INFOhio training to all Ohio school districts


INFOhio is offering free Zoom training to all Ohio school districts. Zoom video collaboration software enables teachers and students to engage in high-quality, live, online learning opportunities. Zoom requires no special technology and can be used on any platform, including Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Chromebooks. Remote students without computers or smart devices still can participate via audio using a telephone.
Each session also provides training on how to leverage all of INFOhio's free, high-quality content. INFOhio content is equitable for students with or without internet access, easy to use remotely and covers almost all Ohio standards, benchmarks and indicators articulated in the state standards and model curriculum.
Join in on this valuable training opportunity and attend one or both sessions. Each will be recorded and posted to the Management Council Community for public access.

    • This session introduces participants to logging on, initiating and joining classes (meetings), using different devices (tablets, phones, laptops) and managing classes, which includes audio, video, recording, viewing options, sharing screens, tracking student engagement, grouping students into breakout rooms and other instructional strategies.
