Let’s try Google Hangout and video chat. I will send you an email tomorrow to your Dearborn Schools email address. For this to work, you must be on Chrome, not Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer. I will set up a Google Hangout meeting for 11:00-11:40.
Here are the instructions:
When joining a Google Hangouts video chat meeting from a
Chromebook or computer, your child must first be logged in to their Dearborn Public School District email. After they have logged in to their email, you will open a new tab or window to get to GoogleHangouts.
The specific directions are below:
