Google Cast for Education
I've been playing around with Google Cast for Education on and off for the last week or so. Sometimes it works perfectly, other times I can't get it to locate other devices. Mr. Duffy has added it to the domain, so everyone, both teachers and students, should have access. It is a chrome app- so it will show up in your apps and extensions when you are using the chrome browser/chromebook and it will also show up under the 3 lines at the top right of your chrome browser as "Cast". Note* this is NOT the chromecast dongle! You must be logged in to your school account; it requires no additional hardware. It has great potential to help students share their work when using the chromebooks- without getting up and trying to connect to the projector, or you can share your screen to your entire google classroom class, quickly and easily- no projector needed, all students can see and be actively engaged. Here's the quick promo video to tell you more about it as well as a slightly longer one to help you try it out on your own. I'm very curious to see your results, so please add them to the comments section. Did it work for you? What uses do you see for it in the classroom? If you are using Google Classroom, was it useful?
