Content for Students
SOITA offers a variety of standards-aligned programs for students, designed and delivered by licensed educators. No videoconferencing system? No problem. Student programs can be presented via Zoom as well as via a traditional H.323 unit such as a Polycom. Programs feature content area topics as well as holidays.
Two Ways to Participate
Traditional Video Conferencing
For individuals using a “traditional” H.323 video conference unit (such as a Polycom, Tandberg, Cisco systems) is required along with an internet connection. Schools may dial into SOITA or SOITA may dial out to schools. If the school wants to dial SOITA directly an IP# will be sent approximately one week before the start of the event. If you would like to do a test connection please email Kim@soita.org with a date/time that would work best for you.
Zoom Video Conferencing
For classroom use, if you have a laptop, desktop or most any device with a webcam and microphone, you are good to go! Teachers are welcome to connect a projector to their device so that the students can see. For use with a classroom sized group you might want to consider adding a nice webcam and a USB microphone/speakers. This is a recommendation but not a requirement
Zoom Connection Information
A Zoom meeting connection ID will be emailed approximately one week before the start of the event. Participants will be required to download a zoomuslauncher.zip file one time before using zoom.
Featured & Seasonal Content for Students Programs
If you would like to do a test with SOITA through zoom, please email Kim@soita.org with a date/time that would work best for you.
SOITA offers interactive video conferences for a wide variety of topics for various grade levels. You can download a listing of sessions in the right column. We can also present a program just for your class. Please contact Kim@soita.org to schedule yours!
Materials will be available before the video conference so your students can prepare for the session. They will interact directly with the instructor. Complete descriptions are listed below.
If you would like SOITA to present a session only to your class on a specific date at a time that fits your schedule, give SOITA a call at (937)746-6333 to schedule your session. The cost for a private session is $75 for SOITA members and $150 for non-members. We also offer additional topics, such as:
The Water Cycle
Learning To Draw Conclusions
A Closer Look at Plants
Understanding Cause & Effect
Laugh Your Head Off with Idioms
Learning About Fractions
