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!
LanSchool has this feature. It allows students to view what the teacher is presenting on their monitor without having to look up at a screen, It helps students with poor eye sight a great deal. It also assures that all students are on track by not allowing them to go anywhere else on the computer.

I believe this was a feature of another program i used to use at another district. it had a logo of an owl but I cant remember the name.

You can do this... You can send them the link... Or am I missing what is being requested?

With this, I wouldn't be restricted to something like peardeck which only does powerpoints!
Try Aristotle K12. We used to have go guardian and switched away three years ago. Aristotle has this feature and the system works on PC & Mac without needing Google to make it work. They give us more functionality at a lower cost.

It's nice for demonstrating, note taking, etc. The program I currently use (LAN School) does it and that'd be a feature I look for if we switch.

My young computer students cannot see the big screen because they are too short and can't see above other students and computers. It would be a lifesaver if they could view the lesson I'm demonstrating directly in front of them.
Just want to add my support to this request. This would be a wonderful feature!!

Teacher can take a screen they are on and clone that screen to student devices and show them. This would help with technology costs as projectors would not be needed in the classroom.
The ability to Mirror a teacher screen onto the student chromebooks. this would be helpful for real time science, art, etc. lab demonstrations.

Instructor can broadcast their screen to all students active in the classroom. This would allow Teachers to mass present something to the class. For example, some students may have a hard time seeing a projector. This would allow them to view the projector directly from their laptop.
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.

I would like to be able to change my students' screens to the one on my Smartboard so they can watch on their computer what I write on my board.

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.

Would love to be able to push my screen to students! I sometimes work in locations with no whiteboard or projection equipment, so this would greatly assist teaching.

Add broadcast ability
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.
Last year I used Lanschool with our laptops/computer lab. I was able to mirror my screen to all of my students. For example, I had a power point (not Google Slides) and I projected my power point from my screen to their screens. I was able to control each slide as I talked. It was a great feature to use last year. That way the students could view my presentation at their desk with their own laptops/chrome books without having to look up at my class screen (I think they were more engaged).

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.
