Google Hangouts in Your Classroom: Virtual Guest Speakers

Screen Shot 2014-04-30 at 10.04.46 AMGoogle Hangouts are a fantastic tool for connecting with colleagues, other classrooms and experts in the field.  If you aren’t able to take your students to a Civil War battlefield or a National Park, or just can’t afford to fly a guest speaker to come to a school assembly, try organizing a Google Hangout.

This tool allows you to video chat with anyone with an Internet connection.  There is even the option to have multiple video calls happen at once so a group of people can “hangout” together.  This is great for holding a discussion or to form a panel that your students can address with questions they’ve written about a topic.

Next time you’re looking to bring a guest speaker to your class – why not try out a Google Hangout?
