We suggest that for the best possible experience, your child uses a headset with a microphone (you can see some Amazon examples here).
Most modern computers or laptops may come with an inbuilt-mic, but we ask that if this is the case, if possible, you provide your child with standard headphones or earphones to plug into their computer to reduce background feedback.
- Background feedback occurs when the noise coming out of the computer speaker (the class talking or the teacher’s voice) goes back into the microphone and can be heard by the whole Zoom class.
For this reason, we also ask that your child sits in a quiet room for their lesson! (where no well-meaning siblings or kitchen noises can disturb the lesson, as these sounds can be heard by the class).
