Learning from Home - Video conferencing information

Hurstville Public School - Information regarding Learning from Home - Video Conferencing.


Zoom and Microsoft Teams Meetings are ‘live’ video conferencing (VC) platforms that teachers may use for some online classroom meetings. Students in Years 3 – 6 have begun trialling the use of video meetings for class check-ins with students during Term 3 2021 whilst Learning from Home. Students in Stage 3 are piloting the use of the video meetings on Microsoft Teams and Stage 2 through Zoom for use throughout this period.

During these check-ins, students will have the chance to ask any questions about their learning frameworks and interact with their class peers. A Hurstville PS staff member (usually the class teacher or teacher from the grade) is the host of the meeting and will send an invite for students to join a meeting at a specific time. This meeting will take place during an allocated class time (Class Meeting/ Check-in Time). Each class teacher will advise students via Seesaw or Microsoft Teams of the allocated meeting time in advance.  

The NSW Department of Education has developed guidelines to support schools using live video with students and has engaged in an Enterprise Licence with Zoom and Microsoft.
