I am trying to problem solve an issue with Google Meet. I will be teaching remotely via Google Meet to students who are in the same classroom with a classified staff member as their monitor. Is there a way for the students to be logged on and turn on their microphones to speak without the feedback that is created when people in the same room log on to the same Meet?

Headphones with mics on them work the very best.

They all have to mute except the student talking. Otherwise it’s a loud vibrating noise

I wonder if it’s the wireless Internet in my school. When they unmute (even just one child at a time) we get the noise any time there is another person logged on to the Meet in the same room, even if they are across the room. This should go well.

Have kids use headphones.

I talked to my husband who works in tech. He said that the only solution is for students in the same room to wear headsets (headphone with attached microphone). This will be true for any platform because the computer’s microphone is designed to pick up all sound, not just a single voice. I checked on Amazon and a decent one costs around $30. You might want to check with your district about ordering in bulk for students who are working in close quarters with siblings or cousins.

Please please don’t feel inadequate. There is no “techie gene”. You are an intelligent motivated person who, as a teacher, faces challenges everyday that many would turn away from. The key to tech is the Ms. Frizzle approach, “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!” You have this!

The noise in the home can be so loud when there are so many doing virtual learning in the same home. I wish they all would wear headsets!

I’m doing something similar on Zoom and it seems ok if they aren’t sitting close to each other.

Only if you switch to Zoom so it is set up to auto mute for sign on.

I wish could. Everyone must use Google Meet.
