Microsoft Teams rules

I am putting our Teams rules up. We will go through them together tomorrow.

  • Please log in to the lesson on time.
  • Always have paper and something to write with. Most of you should have your pink homework books. This will be good to use as your work can be stored together.
  • Please use your own name. When you join the meeting, you can edit the name that will be shown. This will be used to take the class register so make sure you put your proper name (no nicknames).
  • Do not unmute yourselves unless you are asked a question.I would prefer not to keep you permanently muted. To unmute yourself just click on the microphone mute icon.
  • The chat box is for you to ask me a question or for you to answer a question in. It is not a general chat box. Non-learning chat is NOT to happen in the chat box.
  • If you are allocated to a breakout room then this is the group I would like you to work with.
  • When I am sharing my screen I am no longer able to see all of you at the same time. This means that I will randomly choose someone to answer. Please ensure you are at your screen so I do not have to scroll through the whole class.
  • Please do not have the tv or any other devices on in the background and try to work in a quiet area. This will allow you to fully concentrate and limit distractions for you and for others when you are unmuted.
  • Try to eat, drink or go to the toilet before or after the lesson.
