Zoom Directions for Students

Free directions for students on how to access a Zoom conference meeting! They come in both a Google Slides and PDF format.
I just wanted to pass along some student directions for accessing a Zoom meeting I created for a group of teachers who will be using Zoom to connect with students while at home. I shared these on my Facebook and Instagram accounts yesterday and couldn't believe how many people were looking for something like this!
They are editable so feel free to use and add your own spin.
These were specifically created for teachers who have students using computers and ipads. The last slide contains links to more helpful resources (using other devices/attendee controls/using Zoom in a browser).

I currently do not have directions like this for how you can set up a Zoom meeting with students. I was Zooming with teachers about Zoom 😂when we came up with the idea to create student directions. Someone shared THIS video tutorial in our Teach with Tech facebook group that could help you get started.

  8. Our students have chromebooks. Do the computer directions work for chromebooks?

    1. Hi Andi! No, they would need a different set of directions. On the last slide I provided a link to the download center. They would need to install the Chrome app. Another way to do it would be to use Zoom within the browser. That is a setting the instructor needs to turn on when setting up the meeting. Apparently attendees do not have access to the full functionality of Zoom during a browser meeting.

    1. Once you make a copy of the Google Slides file it will be sent to your Google Drive where you can edit the directions. The title is not editable.

  11. Do you think the teacher that made the Spanish Zoom directions would make one for Google Classroom?

    1. If you have Google Classroom directions you can send me, I can ask her if she would be interested in translating :)

  12. This is awesome! Thank you for sharing. Due to a Verizon grant we are lucky enough to be a 1:1 school. We have pushed the Zoom app out to iPads for meetings next week (this week is technically spring break). I teach 8th grade math and I love that myself or student can share a whiteboard feature to work problems. Also in the meeting, you can alter settings for chat so they can only chat with you and try to keep it centered on the lesson then open up for some fun. We are new to using it with students, but I would recommend to those who haven’t used it before to read on the website about it and see how easy it is then use it between team members. You can even click to start a meeting with no one on it and play around with features. If you have older students, challenge them to try and teach you something. They can probably do it quicker and help teachers along the way. LOL You could also create a Padlet for teachers in your school to ask questions or post ideas.

    1. For the most part it is similar to ipads. However, these directions are editable so feel free to rework to fit your own needs. I created these for a group of kindergarten teachers who just needed the computer and iPad directions.

  25. I have some parents who are really struggling with connecting some times. It is tough to help them when I can't see what's on the other end or when there is a language barrier. THANK YOU for sharing these with the world, I am hoping it will help overcome some of the connectivity challenges.
