During teletherapy, it can get pretty boring if it is only the SLP with the power to move and click items on the screen. When a child can be an active participant in teletherapy their engagement increases which means their potential for learning does too. Many platforms easily allow for Screen Control Sharing…but not Google Meet.
There is a work around however that can help to fix this pesky problem. Here are the steps you need to follow to give your students screen control in one click!
- Download the Chrome Remote Desktop extension You will only have to do this once.
- Create your Google Meet
- Copy and paste this code into the chat box, but don’t hit enter yet! https://remotedesktop.google.com/support/
- Now, add session/ after support so it looks like this: https://remotedesktop.google.com/support/session/
- Go back to you chrome extension and click Generate Code. You will get a 12 digit code. Copy and paste this after the session/
- Now you can click enter and post it in the chat. All your student needs to do is click the link.
- You will be promoted to share your screen on the chrome extension page and then you are good to go.
If you are someone like me, who likes to ‘see’ the steps, then you can watch this short video.
I have only tried this between computers so far, so I am not sure how it would do with a computer/iPad situation etc. If you know, feel free to share in the comments.
