To get started teachers will need to enable google meet for your classroom by clicking on the section highlighted:  If this is not showing for your class, ask your teacher to generate it. The meeting link, once active can be made invisible by the teacher at any time.


Once this step has been completed the Google Meeting “room” is setup and can be used over and over, with teachers just entering it by licking the link.

Note:  Students cannot enter the room without the teacher being in there first as they do not have permission to create google meetings using their school logon.
