Armchair Travel to Mexico

Hi Raffaela!

There are a few ways you could do this:

1. I've created a YouTube playlist with all the YouTube links below, using this link you could easily and quickly access any of the clips with a laptop plugged into a TV/Projector.
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkmNjm-1ltrF8pgHPKcnSNIopSW9iMQqV

2. If you the clips on a USB and you don't have internet connection, then the only way I'm aware of doing this would be to download those videos to be played offline. I'm not sure what is allowed, but if you search "download youtube video" in Google you'll find a few places that do it.

I hope that helps!

Create Your Own Slideshow!

Hi Kerrily!

Thanks for the feedback. Have you had a chance to test out one of the slideshows yourself yet?

The font is quite large, especially when considering that the group event is usually done on a larger screen, like a TV or projector.

That being said we will see what we can do here, and image quizzes are already being worked on behind the scenes :)

Biological Diversity Poster #3

Hi Teresa!

Yes - you can now print any activities in several paper sizes :)

11 x 17 is called Tabloid. Directly above the "Download & Print" button is a new paper size bar, just click the size you want before clicking the button.

Let me know how you go!

What Am I Quiz #1

Hi Linda!

Thank you for the feedback - we've got lots more in store this year :)

All you need to do is open the Play Quiz game you'd like to use on the Zoom call, you can either save that link for the call, or save the Actiivty so you can find it when you're on the call.

To use it - you just share you screen while on the zoom call.

Hope that helps - let me know how it goes!

Guess the Classic Car Quiz

Hi Linda!

We are working on an exciting new way to handle Image Quizzes.

However - in the meantime, I've converted this PDF into a Word Document and PowerPoint so you can use it :)

Easter Sunday Posters

Hi Susan,

That is strange - could you please try again and see if this link works?
https://www.goldencarers.com/pdf/7039/

If not, can you explain in a bit more detail what is not working, eg the page doesn't load, the print preview doesn't work, the printer prints but it's blank, etc.

Thanks!

Forum

Hi Renate!

Thanks for getting in touch.

Zoom calls are not something we can't directly control - but we certainly have activities and ideas that are suitable for them.

We recently launched a new Quiz Slideshow feature, here is an example, scroll down and click "Slideshow"
https://www.goldencarers.com/us-presidents-quiz/6685/

In terms of using PDFs for zoom calls - this is something that really depends on what you're trying to achieve, and how you want to use the resource, so I'm not sure I can provide too much help there sorry.

Maybe some others will have a few tips and tricks from their own experience!

Old Wives Tales #1 - True or False?

Hi Jennifer!

Interesting question, currently, once the slideshow has loaded in your web browser, you no longer need an internet connection to use it.

So that means you could open the slideshow on a laptop at home, then take it to work and connect it to a TV via a HDMI cable, and then go through the slideshow that way.

It's not ideal, and most work places have WiFi these days, but it is an option.

We are also looking into a downloadable version but don't have an ETA on that just yet.

I hope that helps! :)

Free Activity Calendar for Seniors

Hi Tonya!

If you're working with the Word Document, try and change the settign "1-Page" to "Multi-Page".

That will let you resize your table inside of word once you've generated it.

Let me know how you go! :)
