Events are announced each month via our newsletters (sign up!), the website and social media. We use StreamYard to broadcast the events as it allows us to to reach a large number of classrooms with each lesson.
Three ways your classroom can join the adventure:
1) Grab a camera spot so your class can appear on screen and interact with the speaker. We generally have 5-6 classrooms joining in this way each event. Simply click the red ‘Sign Up’ button on the lesson page on the website and you will be taken to a camera spot request form. Fill it out and submit. We’ll contact you within 24 hours to confirm your spot. To prepare the best browser to use is Google Chrome if you’re not using it already, we will send you a link and all you have to do is follow it into the live event. We’re happy to do a quick test call in advance.
2) Tune in live! Any number of classrooms can watch the events live on YouTube or Facebook and even send in some questions using the chat side bar. Every lesson has its own page on our website with a red ‘Stream’ button on the right. Simply click on it and you’ll be brought to the YouTube page where the event will start playing when we go live. You can also find the events streaming live on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ebtsoyp
3) Every hangout is recorded directly to YouTube, we have a growing library of past events that can be viewed by classrooms anytime on our channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvQkEzcH9f_9OylEdmALiWg
