How to use Zoom and Google Meet together to allow for extra support for students.

 If your class is using Zoom for instruction of your class and you have a support teacher in your class and would like them to be able to visually work with the student in a one-on-one setting for a part of the time, try the following.

  • Have the support teacher start a Google Meet -
  • Name the meeting (I recommend the student's first name - but whatever works for you and your district).
    • Start the meet
  • Make sure the student has Google Meet set as a bookmark (choose star to right of url) or (Ctrl+Shift+D) or select the three dots in upper right and choose bookmark this tab.
  •  Have the student join the Google Meet  (remind the student to have a bookmark or someway to easily join and be able to re-join)
  • The support teacher and the student can now work together 
    • the student can show work they are doing
    • the student and support teacher can chat if necessary one-on-one
  • They can leave the Meet and re-enter the Zoom 
Embedded below is a minute and second YouTube tutorial showing what it looks like in a Zoom meeting from the teacher's point-of-view as well as what it looks like from the student's point-of view when in a Google Meet.

Apologies as the Chromebook I was using did not allow for Screencastify to load so my daughter had to shoot the video with my phone. 📱 😀

Of course there may be other ways and I would love to hear them.

Take care,
