A Must Have Google Hangout Tip Sheet for Teachers

Google Plus hangout is a free video chat service from Google that enables both one-on-one chats and group chats with up to ten people at a time. There are several ways hangouts can be used in your class. For instance, you can use them to create a group discussion with your students around a given topic. You can also use them to watch YouTube videos together to spark a discussion. Language teachers can use them to practice using new vocabulary, phrases, and communicational functions.




Google Hangouts are not all video based. You can hold a hangout using only the textual chat functionality or you can add voice. There is also another great feature called hangout on Air. A Hangout on the Air is a Google hangout that is broadcast on YouTube both through your Google+ page and YouTube itself. It’s a great way to have a “public” event or get more people involved in the conversation!
