Live Video Conferencing Guidelines/Protocols

    Does anyone have any sample guidelines for students (of varying grade levels) for rules/procedures/norms for live video conferencing?  I would love to see some other districts' guidance in this area.  Thank you!

    What a great idea. I hope someone has a draft you can look at or we could as a community create one. 

    What would you include? 

    I would include something about the space you are conferencing in, should be quiet without distraction as much as possible. No tv or phones during the conference.

    Thanks, Emily.  Yes, that is one of the things we would like to include, but we also want to make sure that there are privacy guidelines for both teachers and students and in my research online I am not seeing many good examples of rules/procedures/etc.  ​

    Here's a draft that I've been working on. It has been changing as we go and learn more. You are welcome to use it as a starting point! Online etiquette guidance for teachers and students.
