Now that your class is underway, this tutorial will show you how to share your information with your students through demonstration. With screen-sharing demonstrations, you can easily share your desktop with your students. Every student gets a front row seat to the information. You can engage their attention and improve comprehension. It also increases retention of concepts.
Demonstrations can take place through three methods, full screen demo, window demo, and minimized demo.
A full screen demo shows your screen to the students’ computers. It utilizes full student desktop as students’ keyboards and mice are locked.
A window demo shows your screen in a window on the student’s computers. It allows the students the option to view or not. Students do have control of their mice and keyboard.
A minimized demo makes your desktop available as a button on the task bar, students can continue working, but they can choose to view or not view the demo. Students do have control of their keyboards and mice.
Demo options are available on the home tab of the ribbon. To start demonstration, click the demo icon at the home tab. Vision 7 will minimize to allow you to demonstrate your screen to the class.
Students will see your presentation on their individual screens. To stop demonstration, click the stop icon. Student computers now go back to the previous screen.
Demonstrations make your desktop available to students as a button on the task bar. You can share the teacher’s computer with individual students, a group, or the entire class.
Fullscreen demonstrations lock out student keyboards and mice, for undivided attention, and additional modes let students work in parallel with lessons, making your demonstrations available for reference, if needed.
