As Co-Teaching becomes more popular in education, it is imperative to allow both teachers (or Presenters) in a meeting to utilize and manage important features such as Breakout Rooms.
Currently, Breakout Rooms are only able to be managed by the meeting creator. This overlooked feature leaves out all Co-Teachers, Special Education Teachers, Para-Professionals, Instructional Aids, and Principals from participating in Breakout Rooms.
This is an important feature because teachers rely on numerous adults to participate in student's learning but this is holding us back from giving this important service.
Imagine the meeting creator gets sick the day before the lesson, but it requires breakout rooms. The lesson is broken.
Imagine the meeting creator loses connection in the middle of the meeting. The Co-Teacher cannot bring students back. They are stuck in Breakout Rooms.
Please help us support our students by allowing all Co-Teachers and Presenters the ability to access Breakout Room Management.Scott Kielty supported this idea ·
