Some ways that you can spice up your Zoom calls

Host A Zoom Party with Games!

Zoom is a temporary alternative to meeting in person. By now we all know Zoom, but did you know that you can play some fun online games with the family via Zoom? All you need to do is find a game you want to play below, have the host share their screen, and get each person to play the game on the screen or on their own separate phone. If you need more instructions for these games just contact Ps Josh at 0422379128. If you need help using Zoom CLICK HERE. Here are some of our favourite games to play on Zoom:

Skribbl.io is a free multiplayer drawing and guessing game. Draw and guess words with your friends! This game is similar to Pictionary but online. Just create a private room, have everyone join on their phones or other devices and have fun! This game comes highly recommended by Ps Josh.

Kahoot! is a free game-based learning platform that makes it fun to learn. You can also create your own Kahoot games by offering four possible answers to a question and in the game, the participants will try to guess the correct answer. This is a fun game to play with your family and comes highly recommended by Ps Brenda.

Netgames.io

Social games for your phone. Choose a game, get out your phone, & enjoy some games with friends.

How To Use Zoom

Before joining a Zoom meeting on a computer or mobile device, you can download the Zoom app (links below). Otherwise, you will be prompted to download and install Zoom when you click a join link.

Each meeting has a unique 9, 10, or 11-digit number called a meeting ID that will be required to join a Zoom meeting. You can generate this by creating a meeting or by getting it from the host.
