You will be expected to adhere to the following etiquette rules for engaging in video conferencing:
- Start the sessions with your microphone off and follow the teacher’s instructions.
- Be appropriately dressed for engaging in conferencing with teachers and peers – casual clothes are fine, but you need to be dressed for the day.
- Avoid eating and drinking when participating in calls; you should be focussed on the learning and discussion, and just as you would not eat and drink in class, you should avoid this when engaging remotely.
- Be polite and respectful to peers and teachers – a video conferencing call may seem more casual, but student engagement and communication will be expected to meet the same high standards as face to face interactions would at school.
- Notify your teacher if you are unable to participate – just as you would be expected to let a teacher know if you are unable to attend a class or activity, the same will be expected for video conferencing (unless there is a known issue around network access). Attendance and participation will be noted.
- Locate yourself appropriately – finding a relatively quiet space will enable you to focus on engaging with your teacher and peers. This also mean tidying your personal space if you need to use your own room.
- Be aware that your teacher may record video conferencing sessions; if you have a concern about this, please alert them before participating.
- Do not record any online face-to-face meetings. Only teachers may do this.
