How Do I Navigate My Classroom in Kiddom?
Within your Classroom in Kiddom, you'll see your students front and center. To locate your Classroom, enter your class and click on the "Classroom" tab (chair icon) on the lefthand menu.
You'll find your class code in the upper left corner of your Classroom. Click here to learn more about class codes.
In your Classroom, you'll see tiles for all of your rostered students. Within each student tile, you'll notice either a black circle with a slash through it or a green circle with a check. A black circle means the student is not logged in and a green circle means the student is logged in.
You can also click on a student tile to enter a 1:1 with the student, chat with the student, edit the student's name or remove the student from your class.
