Equipment Starter Pack for Qkids Teachers

Hello Everyone! Teacher Suna here from Toronto, Canada. I’ve been teaching with Qkids for over a year now. 



(No affiliate links appear in this article. The specific items mentioned in this article are simply suggestions from a Qkids teacher and not requirements.)

Here’s a “teacher starter pack” I created that shows you all the must-have equipment you should consider to get started on your Qkids Teacher journey. If you’re a seasoned teacher, you might consider these products if you’re looking for an upgrade or addition to the technology you already use. I have provided links to all the products in this blog with options for both the United States and Canada. All the products I have listed below are $25 USD or less!

Let’s get started!

Headset with a Microphone

You will need some sort of headset with a microphone to teach classes. This can be either a wireless headset or one with a cord. I personally use a headset with a wire that has a mute/unmute button and volume adjustment. Here are two options from Best Buy.

 


Mouse 


You will need a mouse to navigate the Qkids platform and classes. I opted for a wireless mouse that connects to your laptop through a USB. Check out this one from Best Buy.

Light

Good lighting is absolutely necessary when teaching Qkids. Some teachers use small ring lights or larger ring lights. I’ve found this LED book light great because you can clip it wherever is convenient like your laptop or table. This light also has 3 settings of warm and white. I found these on Amazon.

Webcam Cover

The final product I would consider is a webcam cover if you are using your laptop’s built-in camera. This can allow you to enter the class with your camera covered allowing you to enter and set up your classroom before you’re ready to teach. You can also choose to cover your camera after a class is complete while you do your student evaluations. Check out these covers from Amazon that come in a 6-pack.

You are now equipped with all the tools you need to teach smoothly with your Qkiddos. Let me know in the comments section if there are any must-haves that I missed!
