Playful Zoom ideas
For fun, or for necessity have people go get something and come back. It could be a time to take a break (“Turn off your camera and be back in 3 minutes”) or it could be a race (“The first person to get a toothbrush in their hand on camera, wins–GO!”)
Play ‘Reveal Yourself’
It’s easy. Turn off your cameras and reveal yourself if…. “You are wearing pajamas” “Drank coffee today” “Can sew a facemask” “Made your bed” “You have a dog” “Have more than one gmail address” …make up some questions, go over how to turn your camera on/off in the platform you’re using, and PLAY!
Rename yourself to…
Agree/disagree… use adjectives to tell how you’re feeling… the name your favorite character….
Think. What would be fun or relevant to what you’re doing?..
Take better pictures: for fun or for work
