About SOWA Virtual Workshops

Learning Environment: School’s Out Washington events are interactive. We encourage you to:    

  • Share your voice however possible — over video, audio and/or through the chat box.    
  • Have snacks and beverages on hand for refueling mind and body.   
  • Give yourself and others grace. Set your status as needed if you need to focus on other things in your environment for a moment during the event.   

Technical Support: We encourage you to download the latest version of Zoom to your device before the event. A strong Wi-Fi and/or phone network connection will be essential.     

Accommodations: Automated closed captioning and transcription will be available during the event via the Zoom – Otter AI integration
