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.
Just want to add my support to this request. This would be a wonderful feature!!
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.

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.

to allow teachers to lock student computers while a teacher is able to push his/her screen to those computers. basically mirroring the teacher display on the whole go guardian classroom.
