Connect Technology Conference


I attended the Connect Technology Conference (Canada’s Learning and Technology Conference) this week in Niagara Falls, Ontario.  This was my second time attending this amazing EdTech event.  There were many dynamic speakers and topics but the two tools I was most eager to investigate were Google Hangouts and Skype in the Classroom.   I have already blogged about Skype and will post about Google Hangouts in the near future.  I experimented with Google Hangouts with three classes today and had to work through a few challenges, mainly with adding students, before we were able to get it running properly.  I definitely think this tool would work best with small groups, rather than the whole class, which I attempted today.
