Do we need to watch as a class or can we join individually from home?

We can cater to whatever is most convenient for you and your students.

How can I make sure my students get the most out of their session?

In our experience sessions run much better if the teacher plays an active role in ‘hosting’ the session, encouraging and fielding questions from the class.

If you’re joining from the classroom it’s helpful for the presenter to be able to see the students on camera but this is not a requirement.

We also tend to find that students are more engaged if they’re able to speak directly to the presenter over the microphone, rather than typing their questions in the chat or having them relayed by the teacher.

What platform do you use?

Sessions can be held on the Freud Museum’s Zoom account but many schools prefer to host them on their own platform (Teams, etc).

How many students can you accommodate in an online session?

In principle there is no limit to the number of students, but the cost of a session is calculated on the basis of a single class of up to 30 students.

What are the technical requirements?

If you’ll be joining all together from a classroom you’ll need a computer in the classroom with a microphone (and preferably a camera) and an internet connection. The computer should be connected to a screen and speakers.

If you’ll be joining individually from home, each attendee will need a laptop, tablet or smartphone. A camera is recommended but there is no requirement for students to activate their cameras.

What safeguarding measures are in place?
