“Teach and learn from everywhere!” – “Make every student a presenter.”
New from Google this summer, Google Cast for Education gives students the ability to share their Chrome screen and sound wirelessly through the teacher’s computer connected to the projector and speakers. The teacher then can accept or deny their request to project. The beauty of this is that when students are doing presentations or showing a video they created or even if they just want to share a photo or some research they found with the class, it’s as simple as clicking the extension! No more moving from their seats, unplugging the teacher device and speakers, and plugging in to the student’s device.
To get started, teachers need to install the Google Cast for Education app
and set it up – name it. Students need the Google Cast extension in their Chrome browser. Chrome management admins can install the new Cast for Education app for all teachers, and the Google Cast extension for their entire domain. Important… make sure Chrome is updated to the newest version for this to work!
