5 ideas for using Google Hangouts On Air | Innovative Educator

5 ideas for using Google Hangouts On Air | Innovative Educator | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

By Lisa Nielsen

 

"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:"

I am currently leading my students toward Google + hangouts vs. Skype. This seems to be a growing trend.

Mark Fuson's curator insight, July 19, 7:03 AM

I must admit, I've got to get better at some of these. One of the biggest issues with learning something is practice and practice takes time and the willingness to fail. Unfortunately, teachers often are so rushed by their schedules that they can't afford to struggle with something in order to learn it because they have 165 students, 3 different preps, papers to grade, a family life, and curriculum to create. Unless we change these factors, how can a teacher learn new skills in the classroom and why would they try to if experiencing a little failure could negatively impact evaluation?

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics | Edudemic

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics |  Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? 

 

Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.
