Which devices will my students be able to use to stream?

Your students should be able to stream on most school-issued or personal internet-enabled device. They can watch video projects on iOS, AppleTV, Android, Roku, Amazon Firestick, and their web browser. For our radio plays, they will be able to listen from their phone, tablet, or computer.

Can I show this on my TV in class?

Yes! The easiest option is to use screen mirroring or AirPlay to play the stream from your phone, laptop or other device to your TV. You might see a slight decrease in quality with this option.

If your TV is smart or has internet capabilities, you can download or open an internet browser and log into your email. From there, you can open the email we sent you and click on your link to stream. If you have trouble streaming on an older TV, you may have better luck switching to an alternate device. You can watch from the comfort of your home on iOS, AppleTV, Android, Roku, Amazon Firestick and your web browser.
