This is How To Use Google Hangout in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

This is How To Use Google Hangout in Your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Digital Learning - beyond eLearning and Blended Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to use Google Hangout with your students then here is a very good video clip to help you learn more about the benefits of using this platform in your teaching. Though relatively new, Google Hangouts has been increasingly gaining in popularity particularly among educators and social media users.

 


"Google Hangout  has several distinctive features that sets it apart from the crowd. First, it is integrated with other Google services like Youtube, Gmail, and Calendar and if you have a Google account then you automatically have a Google Plus account. Google Hangouts can also be recorded or streamlined live on YouTube using a generated link. The image and audio quality of hangouts are, I believe, better than the ones in Skype. Google Hangouts also supports a wide variety of third party apps that can be used to perform different tasks like adding emoticons, doodles, chat and many more."

At Google, we believe in the power of the web to help people discover, connect, and learn. Education lies at the very core of our company’s mission “to organize the world's information and make it universally accessible and useful.”

Leading-edge technologies will play a vital role in helping equip future generations with the skills they need to thrive in the workforce of today and tomorrow. That is why we support collaborative learning in communities around the world, and why we invest heavily in education programs initiatives and partnerships through our products and tools.
