Nov. 15, 2023

Evidence Me can be used to share festive activities with parents during term time as well as communicate with parents over the school holidays. Take a look below to find out more.

Sharing Festive Activities

Share children's festive creations with Parents

  1. Take pictures and videos of the festive work that you are doing with your children
  2. Create observations and include your media
  3. Hit that Parent Share button

The best way to share your school nativity performances

Observations are great for sharing shorter videos but if you want to share longer ones, like your nativity play, here are some simple steps to do this effectively.

  1. Capture a video of your performance (we recommend capturing your videos in a lower resolution to get the maximum length but minimum size as videos cannot exceed 500MB)
  2. Upload this to a school media storage area (e.g. your school website Google Drive or YouTube channel)
  3. Create your observation(s) in the Web app
  4. In the “Documents and Links” area use the “Attach link” button to add the full url link to your video (e.g. https://www.myschoolwebsite.com/nativity.mpg) and don’t forget to add a description before clicking on the “attach link” button
  5. Parent share your observations so that parents can watch your production.

This is the best way to share longer videos with parents as it will give them the best experience.
