Remote Learning Tips


Sharing Video in Google Meet--share your screen AND see your students!

This video walks you through three options. He's great at explaining, even if you're not techy!

  1. present using multiple monitors-if you have the capability to do that (See your students on one monitor and have your screen on another monitor.)
  2. login to Meet a second time with a different device
  3. Have one device and one monitor? Overlay your presentation window with your Meet window.

More Info

And, here's another great article to help with sharing with your students...this time learn various ways to share video in Classroom.

Check out Screencastify Submit!!

This new feature from Screencastify is in Beta, but you can request early access here. I asked yesterday, and I got the email I was in today! If you want your students to submit videos, create an assignment in Submit, and you can easily post the assignment link in Google Classroom! Students don't need to have the Screencastify extension installed in order to record videos via Screencastify Submit or a Screencastify account. Check out more info here. It looks like a pretty cool addition to Screencastify.

And, I created a set of instructions for students, including how to access Screencastify Unlimited here. I also added this page to the Student Tech Help page on the MRHS Links page.

Apply for Canva for Education

As a way to give back to schools, Canva offers Canva Pro access, plus a bunch of add ons for the classroom, free to teachers and students. Eligible teachers with proof of their teaching certification and employment at a school qualify to get free Canva for Education access for their class. Sign up on the link below.

If you don't know Canva, it's a design website for images, posters, infographics, social media posts, and more. Health classes have used it for digital posters, and English classes have used it in a variety of ways. Here's an example from Health. It's nice because lots of free to use images and illustrations are included, or you can upload your own.

Submit a Book Review--only MRHS peeps can see them!

Hey, Mustangs! Read any good books lately or have a favorite that everyone should read? Submit a book review to Flipgrid here:, or scan the QR code in your Flipgrid app. Help someone find their next favorite! Need help with Flipgrid? Shoot Mrs. LaRue an email, or she can video chat w/you, too. This would be a cool activity to do with great would it be to have a whole page of reveiws from students and staff in one place? My example is below, but the rest won't be on YouTube...just Flipgrid (shared on the library website for all to see).
