Google Meet Breakout Rooms
Breakout Rooms can be achieved in Google Meet with a bit of preparation. Students can be in various Google Meet rooms which a teacher can participate and monitor.
Create a Google Doc to hold the hyperlinks of your Breakout Rooms
Create names for your rooms
Create random characters to be your "nicknames" (I just pretend type fast to make these)
Place https://meet.google.com/lookup/ before each of the random characters
This works to create and link nickname style meets
Link the room names to each meet link you just created
When you are ready for the meet open each link and join. Mute your microphone as you do
Use an extension like Mute Tab to mute the joined breakout rooms
Announce the Breakout Room document in Classroom when you are ready
Individual links could also be assigned to groups of student to prevent room hopping.
Advanced: Use an extension like Tab Resize for an overall view layout
