How does Livestream Learning Studio support SEL teaching strategies?

Livestream Learning Studio supports SEL teaching strategies by aligning virtual content and follow-up lessons with the five core competencies of the Casel SEL Framework. Our livestream directors establish a culture of kindness and respect during the programs, using terms and phrases that nurture a growth mindset for the program participants. Students work in pairs and/or social groups to complete activities and discuss the subject matter, encouraging them to collaborate and form productive relationships with their peers.

How does a Livestream Event Lesson integrate with the Arts?

We use the performing arts as the construct to present the educational content. Every Original Title is written, produced and performed live in our studio. In addition, each title has a corresponding Arts activity that teachers can use in the classroom after viewing the livestream.

Our first annual subscription is currently available for Grades 3-5. Stay tuned for more in the near future.

How many schools can attend one Livestream Event?

Our platform supports millions of individual users logging in to attend the event, so basically, unlimited.

Does a school need any special technology in order to watch the Livestream Event?

Participants need an internet connection to log in, and a device with audio to watch and listen. The stream can be viewed on phones, laptops, computers, smartscreens, etc. If multiple people are watching from the same location (such as in a classroom), we recommend that the fewest devices possible are used. This allows for a more collaborative experience and can help ensure the best internet connection.

How does a school access the Livestream Events?

Upon subscribing, the schools primary contact will be provided with a link to the Livestream Event along with all necessary details. They are instructed to share this information with their staff, and in the case of distance learning, forward it to the student’s home.

Does Livestream Learning Studio require a log in and do you collect any data?

No log in is asked for or required. We do not require or collect any data that can be tracked to an individual viewer. Our full privacy policy is on our website: https://LIVEstreamlearningstudio.com/privacy-policy/

How long is each Livestream Event available?

The link that the school receives after subscription and registration is the link to ALL Livestream Events throughout the year. One copy of each Original Title (Topic) will be archived and available the following month in a library for educators to use on demand.

Can a school or viewer come late to a Livestream Event?

Yes, if a viewer or viewers log in late to the Livestream Event, they will arrive at the “live” moment within the event. They can continue from there or track back to the beginning of the stream but won’t be able to take true advantage of the live interaction, Q & A, etc.

What happens if a school misses their scheduled Livestream Event, or if some of the school misses it?

If you miss a Livestream Event, there are many options. You can go to the next available event – which could be that same day. In addition, as a subscriber you also have the ability to reference past Original Titles on demand in your library.

Can you perform for all 450 of my students at once? Or just my class of 25?

There is no maximum audience size. The more, the merrier.

Do you need approval from our school district?

Usually, we reach out directly to individual school buildings to see if the school is interested in subscribing, rather than first reaching out to the district. If a school is interested and they require district or board approval, we are happy to fill out any necessary paperwork and/or applications to abide by specific guidelines.

The dates/times you offered don’t work for our school. Can we look at other dates?

The calendar of all 192 Livestream Events is prepared in advance and each event is available live at those times only. An Original Title  will be recorded and added to your library the month following its live debut.

What does an annual subscription cost?

The cost for an annual subscription is $2,650 per school. The total annual subscription cost when you register with your payment information, grants you access to all 192 Livestream Events plus Professional Development for your teachers. Additional discounts apply for a multiple school subscription. Please contact Info@LivestreamLearningStudio.com for more information.
