With the new browser version of the game, most people have no problem playing, but it's always best to double check! Log in to your account and select "Play the Game" on the left sidebar, preferably from a student device. If there's any issues, let us know - IT may need to whitelist subdomains or other solutions.
Then, get your students imported from Google Classroom or created with class codes.
We recommend giving them some time to set up their characters and learn how to use the controls. After that, they can pop in and out quickly.

You can use the Teacher Dashboard to explore and plan out your first instructional use of Tyto Online. Use the chat on the bottom right if you want advice from support!
We've created an ongoing online course to help you get started with Tyto Online, and then support leveling up your NGSS and tech-driven pedagogies.
Each week will only be about 20-30 minutes on the course, and assignments of ideas to implement in your classroom. Come back and join community discussions and share practices with other teachers!
We'll be scheduling new webinars soon. If you're interested in one, let us know via live chat so we know what demand is like and when to schedule it!
We also have short on-demand video tutorials available in a Playlist on YouTube.

This Playlist is designed to help students learn how to play the game; you can share it directly with them!
