Google Cast is a Chrome app that runs in the Chrome browser and allows projectors to stream video and audio. These can be integrated with Google Classroom. Students can wirelessly project whatever is on their screen and share what work they are doing with the rest of the class. Teachers also have inbuilt controls and can receive casts using the Google Cast for Education app.
Epson projectors are particularly useful in the educational space with the ability to transform any 2D surface into a whiteboard. It produces up to three times brighter colours as well as producing powerful colour and detail for their lessons. Lamp life lasts up to 6,000 to 10,000 hours, and this helps teachers engage their students for longer.
Jason Meyer, education product manager at Epson America, said: “Epson designs classroom projectors with direct input from educators. With the rapid adoption of Chromebooks in schools in recent years, one of the top requests we've received is for a way to wirelessly mirror a Chromebook on an Epson projector.
“Google Cast for Education meets this request and enables a new level of interactivity and class discussion through the power of simplified connectivity."
