"If you're an innovative educator, by now, you have probably tried Google Hangouts which let you conduct a video conference with up to ten people / locations FOR FREE! This by itself has terrific potential for teaching and learning tool.
I explained here ways the following ideas could be put to use in the classroom:1) Take a class without having to be in the same place. 2) Invite an audience to a performance. 3) Invite others to perform/discuss with you. What you may yet to have tried is livestreaming your Hangout and capturing it via YouTube. This is known as Google Hangouts On Air which takes something that was already awesome, and makes it even better.
You can see what it is here:"
