Students are now able to use the multi-task function on the iPad and their cameras will remain turned on. The camera only stays on when they are multi-tasking (i.e both apps are open at the same time). Here is a screenshot of Zoom and Jamboard open at the same time. Notice that all cameras are still active. This will also work in a breakout room.
When could this be valuable?
- Students who need non-verbal prompting during a lesson. The student can now have a Google Doc or a Google slide open during a zoom session. They now have access to their supports outside the zoom session.
- Listening to text read aloud. The teacher can read a text aloud and the student can have that document open in a side-by-side window.
- Following steps for opening an assignment – the teacher can now screen share and the student can follow along in the other window.
