The Silver Lining Café
and Zoom Tools
Zoom platform as it’s the most commonly used video conferencing tool used by literacy programs, and also during the Silver Linings Café sessions we organized in mid 2020.
In these manuals, we provide information on how to use Zoom as well as highlight some of the features that Silver Lining Café participants have told us are useful in making the most of their Zoom meetings with learners. You will find step-by-step instructions and practitioner tips. There are six sections to this Zoom manual.
