allow teachers to mirror their screen onto their students screens
I want to be able to send my google slides, website, powerpoint, etc to the students' screens! Please add this!
Thank you so much for taking the time to provide feedback. Our engineers investigated the implementation of this feature, and unfortunately, due to higher aggregate costs than benefits to our customers, we will not pursue this opportunity shortly. We will revisit declined suggestions in future releases.

Try Googlecast for EDU
So, 3years later, Does GoGuardian still think this feature isn't valuable enough to develop? I wonder how many customers were lost by leaving this incredibly valuable classroom feature out of your softweare?
I think they should have more accurately stated: It's not worth it for us to add this feature to the basic GoGuardian software, BUT we will look into developing this separately as an add-on and charge you separately for it (as they typically do) lol.

Having the ability to share the teacher's screen to students is a great idea. I am in a special education room with multiple teachers and the small group of students that we each have use Chromebooks for all their assignments and discussions. This option of sharing would allow me and the other teachers to present topics of discussions, presentations, and other styles of teaching without interruption and distractions of displaying various content around the classroom.
I would like to be able to have my screen show to my students so that if I am using a different room, or system, where I do not have a projector available all of my students, can watch me walk through steps for them. Also, this would allow students who might sit in the back of a lecture hall or large classroom the ability to easily see small test or functions that I am using.

I have been researching software to use on windows computers, and many of them seem to have this. It would be great to be able to have a comparable feature.

My teachers would also like this feature. Until then, there is an extension for Chrome called Share to Classroom. Get your class on the same (web)page, instantly.
Google Classroom Teachers: Save time and create a more interactive class with the Share to Classroom extension. The extension allows you to push web pages to your any of your Classroom classes, so they open instantly on your students' computers. With this extension, you can get your students on the right page, quickly and reliably every time. You can also post announcements, create assignments, or save webpages to post to Classroom later.
Students: The Share to Classroom extension gets you to web pages your teacher shares, without you having to type out the whole URL. You can also push web pages directly to your teacher.

We use this feature with the Impero program in our computer labs and on our desktops.. very very useful tool. I have found it most useful when I want to model a new program or website and show the kids how to navigate something before they try.
In that program you can also broadcast a student's screen onto everyone else's screen to highlight or showcase work.

Nearpod does this beautifully and allows you to add questions/activities into your slides/powerpoint. If you have a premium account, you have the option to let kids go at their own pace. Otherwise, you proceed through your presentation and the student devices mirror yours. Data is collected from the activities throughout and you get a good formative assessment.

I would love this feature as well. Students are always moving around to be able to see. Can't accommodate every up front.

Classflow has some similar capabilities, though i haven't tested them.

NetOp's "Vision" product allows pushing teacher screen to student devices. I believe this would be beneficial for our teachers.

Seeing that you can now sync your Google Classroom with GoGuardian wouldn't you assign/share the content with the Google Classroom announcement/assign feature? Then these items would be retrievable by the students after the sessions are over by going to their Google Classroom.

Lanschool does this. It should be doable. It also allows the teacher to keep the class on task.
Jeff Grossenbacher commented
This would be exceptionally helpful for many of my teachers. This would be a VERY worthwhile addition.
Jennifer Shields commented
Yes, I would use this a lot.
Drew Hubbard commented
I'll second that.
Mike Zimmerman commented
This would be a huge help to us if this would be available.
