What is a livestream event from Livestream Learning Studio?

A livestream event from the Livestream Learning Studio is a 30-minute virtual lesson delivered live to schools as part of an annual subscription. During the livestream, classrooms or individuals interact in real time with our hosts who deliver lessons in subject areas using an arts integration pedagogy.

Are reservations required for a livestream event?

Yes, please reserve the date and time for the livestream event you plan on attending at least three (3) days prior to livestream event date. That will be the best guarantee for a live event and ability for our hosts to acknowledge all of those in attendance. 

What if I don't make a reservations?

That’s ok, you can still attend the livestream event, but no guarantee that the live interaction and school shout outs will occur.

What is included with a livestream event?

Each of our livestream events includes:

  • Online teaching and learning toolkit for teacher’s  preparation
  • 30-minute, live event presenting an arts integrated lesson on a specific topic
  • Real-time interaction and Q&A with students during the live event
  • Follow-up activities and assessments available in the online toolkit 
What subject areas does Livestream Learning Studio teach?

Each livestream is aligned to national standards for grades K-5 and highlights two subject areas: Literacy for grades K-2 and STEM for grades 3-5. Within these subject areas we address many different topics including, but not limited to, SEL, savings, ecology, health, civic responsibility.  We provide unmatched educational enrichment with a drama-based arts integrated approach.

Do your livestream events contain content that align with educational standards?

Yes, all of the topics and content in our livestreams align with national educational standards. 

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 hosts 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 the arts?

We use the performing arts as the foundation 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.

How many livestream events can a school attend?

With an annual subscription, all teachers have access to 32 original titles divided into the subjects of literacy (for grades K-2) and STEM (for grades 3-5) giving you access to 100’s of livestream events during the school year.

What evaluation data do you have on your livestream events?

On a scale of 1-7, educators have scored our livestream events at a 6.58 on average. Ninety-eight percent (98%) of these educators said they would like to receive a similar virtual program in the future.

Can a school attend livestream events on more than one day, week or month?

Yes, every teacher (and every student) in a registered school may attend any or all of our livestream events.

Which grade levels does my subscription cover?

Our annual subscription is currently available for grades K-5. Stay tuned for more grades in the future.

How many classrooms can attend a single livestream event?

Our platform supports up to one million viewers logging in to attend a single event.

Does a school need any special technology in order to watch the livestream event?

Participants just need an internet connection and a device with audio to watch and listen. The stream can be viewed on phones, laptops, computers, smart boards, 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 school’s primary contact will be provided with a unique access link to the Livestream Event Portal 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 login is 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 primary contact receives after registration is the link to ALL livestream events throughout the year. You can also access each program each following month in the On Demand library.

Can a school or viewer come late to a livestream event?

Yes, if a viewers login 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, activities and Q&A.

What happens if a classroom misses their scheduled livestream event?

If you miss a livestream event, there are many options. You can go attend the next available event, which could be that same day. In addition, as a subscriber you also have the ability to view past programs in the On Demand library.

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 to abide by specific guidelines.

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

The livestream event calendar is prepared in advance and each event is available live at those times only. Each program will be recorded and added to the On Demand Library the month following its live debut.

What does an annual subscription cost?

The cost for an annual classroom subscription is $495 per classroom, or $4,950 for 10 or more classrooms in one school building. Monthly classroom subscriptions available, contact us for pricing. Your subscription grants you access to 100’s of livestream events plus professional development for your teachers.
