GoSoapBox is digital space where you and your students can interact. We call each space an ‘Event’. 2E = MC
We suggest creating a different ‘Event’ for each class or period that you teach.Event 1 Event 2 Event 3Period 1 Period 2 Period 3
You can create these ‘Events’ from your Account Dashboard.
Here’s what your Event will look like after you create it
Your students will join your Event by using an ‘Access Code’. Click on “Manage Event”to ﬁnd your access code
Your Access Code will be listed at the top of your ‘Manage’ page.
Tell your students to enter the access code at app.gosoapbox.com
By default, your students will be asked to enter their name upon joining your event.
After entering their name, the student will joinyour event and can begin interacting. Each student will see their name at the top of their page. If your students are sharing devices they can click on the name to edit or change it.
