Video Conferencing

Video conferencing best practices for the digital teacher

Tips

Lighting

Place a lamp behind your computer to illuminate your face

Camera Position

Position your camera lens at eye level. Place laptops on a stack of books to avoid the upward camera angle

Mic Setup

use an external microphone (Air pods, usb headset), rather than your computer’s built-in mic and speakers. If you only have headphones use them in combination with computer mic

Eye Contact

When you speak, look at the camera and not the video screen. You will appear more natural and conversational
