Let’s take a moment to learn some common vocabulary related to G2 LINK

How does it work in the classroom?

How does it work in the classroom? Meet Bob, Bob teaches in Classroom A, however, on occasion Bob will team teach with his colleague in classrooms C. The G2 LINK Classroom Amplifier allows Bob’s microphone to be paired with six total classrooms. For now, Bob only wants his microphone to broadcast in his classroom “A” and during fourth hour Bob will team teach with Mary in her classroom “D”. Since Bob has previously paired his microphone with Mary’s classroom, Bob will simply press the pair button to connect his microphone to the G2 LINK Classroom Amplifier in Mary’s classroom. Bob is now connected to Mary’s amplifier, and they are ready to team teach the lesson. Upon returning to classroom “A”, Bob will press the pair button on his microphone reconnecting it to his classroom. This same process will work with the other rooms where Bob has previously “paired” his microphone.
