Last week I attempted my first Google Hangout for professional development. I certainly learned a few lessons and hope to improve in the future. We chatted about Pocket and how it can be utilized from a teacher's standpoint as well as a way to distribute content to students. I will be providing more resources on that topic in the future as I chose to not record the session like initially planned.
By the way, thank you to the staff members that were so very patient with me. :)
Next session will be on Padlet. I have quite a few teachers already utilizing this tool and have had a good response to it. I will focus on it in a couple of ways.
- Using Padlet to distribute content to students.
- Using Padlet as a collaborative tool.
The next session will take place on May 6th, 2014 @ 8:00 pm. If you are an East Noble Employee, you are eligible for a PGP for license renewal, but you can still participate if you are not a part of my school district. Please mark if you are going.
On the day and time of the event, that same button will change to "Join Hangout."
If you are unfamiliar with Google Hangouts, this tutorial should help with preparing you for the process:
