We have deployed Google Cast for Education to all district Chrome devices and accounts. So when staff members or students use their district account to log into a Chromebook or log into the Chrome web browser on a desktop or laptop computer, they will automatically have it available.

Google Cast for Education allows you to wirelessly mirror your desktop screen or a tab in your Chrome browser to any other Chrome browser you are also logged into. This means:
  • Teachers can mirror their Chromebook screen, or a tab in its Chrome browser, onto their teacher station computers and thus project it on their classroom screens.
  • Teachers can optionally set up a Google Classroom, invite students to join it, and then selectively allow those students to cast their Chromebook screens to the teacher station and thus the projector for student presentations.
  • In general, students and staff can mirror their own Chromebook, Windows, or Mac screens to other Chromebooks, desktops, and laptops.
Here's a link to a document with detailed instructions and screenshots for setting up and using this feature:
