What is Google Meet?
Google Meet is very similar to Zoom, a popular virtual conferencing web-based program. Zoom has been all over the news and social media lately due to a variety of hacking and privacy concerns. From what I understand these issues are limited to the free version only but it still poses a risk to students. As such, this has been banned from use in our district.
Google Meet is another Google product and as we are a Google Classroom school/district. This works perfectly for us. Please note that do to FERPA, COPPA, and other state and federal laws it is very important to get permission for use with your parents prior to using this program. In addition, I have had all my students adhere to strict guidelines with involved with our meetings to ensure their safety and adherence to these laws.
Google Meet Apps
I have found that apps and extensions help me better use Google Meet with my students.
What are your favorite apps or extensions to use with Google Meet and your students?
