As a Parent and Educator, I get it, we were not prepared for COVID-19!
That’s not a question, that’s a fact. We’re here now, so how can we get through this?
As a parent of two elementary kids, I’ve notice that most platforms are being misused. Many schools are using communication platforms for learning management systems, which causes us (parents) to be confused and frustrated.
There is definitely a sense of frustration for both Parents and Educators!
Are you an Educator? Are you feeling frustrated?
I want to help! My name is Vinzanna and I’ve been integrating technology in Education for almost 10 years, as a former Business Professor and now as Professional Educator.
So I have a weird idea Let’s go Virtual! :)
I'm going to share the tools that I’ve personally used to teach thousands of students! I've made the mistakes, so you don't have to!
Alright, let's go!
Zoom has become an International household name, since COVID-19, but did you know it was AWESOME before! This tool allows you to conduct trainings/meetings/conferences virtually!
But how do you use it? Are you using it properly? How do I utilize it for students who don’t have access to the class, when I’m presenting live?
First and foremost, if you’re not taking advantage of it, Zoom has a FREE option for all K-12 educators during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Here’s the link - https://zoom.us/docs/en-us/school-verification.html. This will allow you to surpass the free 40-minute limit.
If you are not an Educator, it’s still not a bad option at USD$15 monthly.

This Learning Management System (LMS) is the best all in one platform for hosting conversations, classes, resources, attendance, gradebooks and more!
Is your school and/or district not enforcing a certain platform? Or, is the platform that they have enforced, not working?
Let me start here, I am not an official affiliate for Schoology, but I am here to tell you this is the BESSSTTTT LMS that is out there!
Not only is it easy to use, but it is FREE!!
I adopted Schoology about 7 years ago, and never looked back! I was able to convert 90% of my former employer, a University, to switch to this platform.
This platform is good for the now, but also beneficial for the norm. Whether you are looking at online and/or blended instruction, this is a good solution for you.
Want to talk about these options?
Want someone to walk you through the best options for you and/or your team?
Ready to switch platforms?
Ready for someone to do the work for you?
I'll be glad to help!
