Google Hangouts in Your Classroom: Virtual Guest Speakers

May 8, 2014

Google 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.

Virtual Guest Speakers

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?
