Drive engaged learning with Screen Sharing
To create effective learning environments, knowing how to share your device screen or that of students with your class is a powerful tool to utilise in class.
Let’s learn more about screen sharing and how this feature is able to drive learning and understanding in the digital classroom.
What is Screen Sharing?
Screen sharing allows users to present an exact replica of their screen onto the screens of other participating users. Educators can use screen sharing to create more engaging learning environments. Educators can share lessons, tests, revision work, run through test papers, videos and even educational games.
Gone are the days of needing cables and wires to share your screen at the front of a classroom. Mobile Guardians classroom tools enable educators to share their screens and their students’ screens with their whole class at the touch of a button.
The benefits of Screen Sharing in the classroom
Screen sharing helps create a more engaging classroom experience. There are many ways in which screen sharing will benefit you and your students. Here are some of the benefits screen sharing will bring to your classroom.
Educators can create student-centric classrooms, where students can contribute knowledge and share discoveries with ease within their learning environment can be achieved through screen sharing.
With screen sharing tools like the one created by Mobile Guardian, any student in the class can share their screen regardless of the type of device they are using. This makes classroom environments where students are using different devices a breeze to navigate for educators.
