Guided Access limits your device to a single app and lets you control which features are available. You can turn on Guided Access when you let a child use your device, or when accidental gestures might distract you.
I can't find an option to cast to my TV?
Gemiini Mobile App does not support casting, but many devices can connect to an external display through an HDMI cable.
If you have a laptop available, connect the laptop directly to the TV and play videos via the website to the TV. You can do this by plugging the laptop directly into the TV with an HDMI cable and then playing the videos from the laptop, mirrored onto the TV.
There is also the Gemiini Roku Channel available to those with a Roku device or smart TV. It offers a convenient way to stream your student’s Gemiini assignments on your own TV. Search "Gemiini" in the Roku channel store.
Find out which Roku device is right for you.
