If you can’t make the date and time, you can still watch the visit for a month via the same link!
**A few notes about the virtual school visits**
Books & Registration
At any time before, during or after the presentation, you can click on the link in the lower part of the Crowdcast screen to visit the bookstore’s website and buy a book.
I recommend using your first name and last initial when you register, especially for students. It means that your full name won’t be displayed in the registered attendees section. Registrants will be asked for their school name–this information isn’t shared publicly or anywhere on Crowdcast, it’s just for me to know what schools are attending and say hello to them if I can.
Viewing & Asking Questions
Crowdcast is similar to Zoom, but everyone doesn’t show up on the screen all at once. During the event, you’ll just see me and my presentation. The best way to watch and participate is on a computer. No download is required when watching on a computer; just click the link provided and watch the presentation in your browser. Google Chrome works best, but other browsers are supported. If you watch the event on a smartphone or tablet, you may not be able to ask questions unless you download the Crowdcast app in advance.
At the end of the presentation, I will open up the Q&A section, so that everyone can ask questions. If you’re showing the presentation to an entire class at once, you may want to gather a few questions beforehand, so when it’s time to type them into the Q&A section, you’re ready!
With Crowdcast, there is an option to upvote a question by clicking the arrow to the left of it, so students can give a question more votes, making it more likely to be answered, rather than typing in the same question multiple times. I love to answer questions, so, please prepare to type in questions and vote for those you most want to hear answered! I’ll answer as many questions as he can once the presentation is over.
Thanks for joining me on this virtual adventure!
