How I Use It
Google Hangout is a great tool for meeting virtually to explore, learn, dialogue and collaborate. If you have a strong Wifi connection, you will be able to interact virtually with a partner, small group, etc. anytime, anywhere. This is a tool that would allow students and adults to collaborate with peers from any location. It's a great way to conduct meetings, planning sessions, etc. In my work, I use it to "meet-up" with peers while working in Google Docs to record minutes, design and evaluate projects, etc.
This is an excellent tool for collaborative learning!!! Students could easily interact virtually with project partners for planning, development, etc. related to course-work.
