How to video broadcast inside a channel on the Teams iPad App

In this blog, we’ll use the following steps to video connect with our students within a Teams Channel and share our iPad screen as a tool for instructional videos.

1.  Create a new Channel in Team

2.  Create a calendar event to conduct the live video Meet

3.  Join the Meet and share an iPad screen to the channel

4. Use a variety of applications in the live broadcast

5. Allow students the opportunity to rewatch the live broadcast once it’s finished

Many teachers use iPads as a powerful tool for instruction, creation and collaboration. As schools move towards remote teaching and learning, online collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams allow a single communication hub to run classes and lessons.

The Teams iPad App allows teachers to broadcast and share their screen directly to a Team Channel. This provides an opportunity for educators to utilise their favourite apps to create engaging and clear instruction videos directly from their iPad. 

This may include:

*  Reading directly to your students via the iBooks app and holding a live book club discussion

*  Create instructional art videos using Procreate

* Revisiting and holding a class discussion on a Keynote Presentation

* Giving immediate live feedback to students on a Book Creator creation

* Demonstrating a musical composition in Garage Band
