How to Attend an AVID Virtual College Fair
Make sure that your students have access to 1:1 technology* on the day of the AVID Virtual College Fair.
Bring your AVID Elective class down to the computer lab, so they can
learn about colleges from around the country. Students can log in from
any internet-connected computer, tablet, or smart phone. Each student
should be on his or her own device for the best experience.
Prior to the event, educators and students can register at
AVID.CollegeWeekLive.com. CollegeWeekLive accounts are free! Students,
teachers, and counselors can use them year round to access
Log in and chat!

*For grades 6-8 (as well as elementary) we suggest that AVID classes
participate together as a group (rather than 1:1) and that the AVID teacher gives a guided tour of the AVID Virtual College Fair and acts as
moderator, asking questions on behalf of the students.
