DisplayNote - Broadcast Your Screen to Your Students' Computers

DisplayNote Broadcast is a free tool for broadcasting whatever is on your screen to the screens on your students' laptops, iPads, and phones. One of the best things about DisplayNote Broadcast is that it works on any computers and you don't have to install any software in order to use it. Additionally, your students don't need to be registered in order to view the broadcast from your computer on their devices. 

To use DisplayNote Broadcast you have to register for a free account. Once you've registered you can then just click the broadcast button to start broadcasting. A six digit code will be generated for you to share with your students. Students receive the broadcast by going to the DisplayNote Broadcast site and entering the six digit code generated by your broadcast. 

Watch this short video to see my demonstration of how DisplayNote Broadcast works on a teacher's computer and on a student's iPad.


Applications for Education
DisplayNote Broadcast is the type of tool that is great for getting all of your students to look at the same thing on your computer at the same time. I found this to be particularly useful when giving coding demonstrations to students as they could see things in more detail than just looking up at a projector screen.

Screenhero Makes Almost Any Application Collaborative

Screenhero is a new screen sharing service that offers something that I don't recall seeing in any of the other screen sharing services I've tried over the years. Screenhero offers the option for both parties (the sharer and the sharee) to use their mice to control an application. For example, I can share my screen with you and allow you to move things on my screen. Likewise, I can move things around on your screen. By sharing our screens through Screenhero any desktop application becomes a collaborative application. Watch the one minute video below to see how Screenhero works.

Applications for Education
The free version of Screenhero allows you to share your screen with one other person at a time. My first thought when looking at Screenhero is that it could be great for providing tech help remotely. I also think that Screenhero could be a good tool for students to use when they're using an application like Garage Band that is not collaborative for a collaborative project. By sharing their screens through Screenhero both students will be able to access and work on the same files.
