BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Beach County School District is now rushing Google certification for teachers countywide, so as many as possible are in a position to “live stream” lessons for at least part of each day.
“The goal is for all teachers to stream,” said District Spokeswoman Claudia Shea. “(All lessons) will also be available as recorded after the live presentation. Accommodations would be made in the event a teacher is not streaming.”
The goal: teachers stream lessons — live — using Google Hangouts, then make work accessible through “google classroom” which is an education-focused version of GSuite, used by many major and small businesses nationwide. Many students throughout Palm Beach County already use Google Classroom to complete work, ask questions and return homework to teachers.
The Palm Beach County School District Wednesday afternoon released a guide that was discussed during a news conference earlier in the day. You can download it below.
