Hi Andy!
Great ideas given here! Thanks for sharing some cool ways to maximize conversations & connections utilizing the G+ hangout feature!

Funny, I was looking for additional resources for a blog post of the title above and found this article AND you used our Flickr Creative Commons picture from a G+ Hangout last year! YAY! We're honored!

The picture was taken during a Google+ Hangout with QR Codes (Google for blog post to learn more!) connecting 6th graders in Maryland & 2nd graders in Arizona via G+ Hangout! :-)

Just recently, The Mighty Little Librarian Tiff and I have connected our kids with a G+ Hangout collaboration between Central Middle School in Louisiana and my Murray Hill Middle School in Maryland doing book talks! Blog post soon to follow with more pics & deets!

Cheers!

Google Hangouts

Although I have not heard of Google Hangouts, I think they would be valuable to classrooms. This is a great resource for both teachers and students. It is also beneficial for teachers and students to easily reference content from a previous Google Hangout, since it archives them. Students seem to be more invested in assignments when they have an authentic audience. It sounds like it allows students to collaborate with students from around the world. Collaboration is an important aspect of learning, so I think this is great that students can obtain different perspectives via these Hangouts. How do you find people to participate in a Google Hangout with you? Is Google Hangouts strictly for engaging in verbal dialogue or is there a written aspect of this as well? Thank you for sharing this valuable resource!

I love this idea, but think many parents will be concerned about internet safety. I understand Google Hangouts are public if they are being recorded. Can anybody view them?

Thanks for sharing! We've just started using Google Hangouts here in RSD6. We've found it to be really easy to use.The archiving feature is great. I'd like to set up to a Hangout for our students to share their book talks between schools. I would love to see your students' Google Hangout presentations.
