Virtual History & Archaeology School Visits

Virtual History & Archaeology School Visits

Enrich your school history topics with an online virtual meeting with an archaeologist

Let's talk history!

Time Seekers' Virtual School Visits are a great way to enrich your history topics, especially during times when arranging school trips or in-school visitors may not be possible. Delivered through Zoom, these sessions are suitable for years 2-6 and will give your children the opportunity to ask questions of an archaeologist from their classroom chairs.

Requirements for the Session 

Requirement Notes
Zoom Download Zoom to a laptop or computer which is linked with a smart board, interactive white board or other viewing screen. 
Audio Link A link from the controlling computer to speakers.
Web Cam Sessions can run without a web cam but we can provide a better experience if the archaeologist is able to see the class. To use a web cam, enable the video from the Zoom controls and position the webcam near to or above the viewing screen. 

Zoom Check

Prior to an online visit, a quick Zoom Check can be held between Time Seekers and the school to ensure all links, sound and video are working correctly.
