Qkids Teacher 101 - Preparing Your Teaching Background

Preparing Your Teaching Background

Hi Qkids teachers!

Hope you are having a good week. Today Momo wants to share with you some helpful tips about how to set up your awesome teaching background.

Many of you already have great props to attract students' attention; however, your teaching background is equally important since students see it for the entire class. A messy, unorganized background will not only distract students but also negatively impact your teacher rating. Your teaching style, outfit, lighting, and background all factor into your overall class rating.

Below are some points you should pay attention to if you want to improve your teaching background:

1. The room lighting must be bright enough for students to see you clearly. You should try out different angles in your room and find the sweet spot. Do not point your camera toward the ceiling or light since it will be too bright for students to look at you.

2. The ideal class background is you facing against a wall. It can be a blank white wall. But it is strongly recommended to add elements such as pictures, posters, and stickers. They can better keep your students engaged, and you can also incorporate educational contents if any. Examples are listed below:

Teacher Brandon's class, ongoing
A closer look...

Teacher Jodi's background. It can be a blank white wall behind you as long as you have awesome props to draw kids' attention. 

Teacher Kristen's background wall. She prints out fun and educational contents from class and sticks them on the wall. 

Teacher Erin's background wall. Lovely and creative. 

Teacher James's background wall. Simple but sweet. His name is a good touch point. 

Teacher Johanna's background wall. This is the perfect lighting. Lovely decoration. 

Some other examples: 
Teacher Debbie's background wall. 

Teacher Kim's super classroom

Lots of teachers DIY their posters and pictures, you can use these cards on Google drive for print: Qkids Class Images.

If you don't have time, you can also order posters on Amazon.

Background to avoid:
X. messy closet
X. messy living room
X. unorganized bookshelf
X. dark lighting environment
X. blurry image
X. camera facing upward

3. If you have good lighting and environment but still have video quality issue, you should consider getting an extended webcam on Amazon

Hope you find these tips helpful and we really hope you can become a better Qkids teacher and have your own unique teaching background!

See you in class!
