On Sunday 28th June we’ll be hosting our ninth free online pub quiz for teachers.
To take part you’ll need to download the Zoom app for your phone/laptop/computer. Zoom is available for mobile devices from your app store. It is recommended that you download the app and install it prior to the quiz, especially if you are using a laptop or computer (if this is the case then set up a free account on Zoom.com now). You’ll also need access to Google Forms to record your answers.
At 7.50 pm the link and password to access Zoom will be published below. You can access the video stream from this time. The quiz will start at 8.15 pm to give those with children who have an 8 pm bedtime time to do the parenting thing.
Everyone will be muted during the quiz so that it doesn’t turn into carnage but you are welcome to use the text option to say hello etc.
