Google Meet is an essential video conferencing tool for educators to connect with students, colleagues, and parents remotely. With the ability to conduct virtual meetings (via audio, video, and chat) and webinars with larger groups of participants, engaging learners in new ways with breakout rooms, live streaming, Q&A, polling, attendance tracking, recordings, and more, teachers can easily communicate with others and collaborate on various projects. Google Meet also offers screen-sharing features that allow teachers to share their screen with their students, making it easier to present information and facilitate discussions. Another great feature of Google Meet is its ability to accommodate up to 100 people for up to 60 minutes, making it a convenient tool for hosting large virtual meetings. Overall, Google Meet is a powerful tool that helps educators stay connected and collaborate effectively with others in a remote learning environment.
