Google Hangout

Teaching in a small school with limited students it is important to be able to connect with others outside our community to develop students knowledge of life outside our town. We participated in our first Google Hangout with another class this week. Our students have been reading Morris Gleitzman’s Pizza Cake and have done research on Morris Gleitzman. We connected with a class of Year 3 students at South Halls Head Primary in Mandurah who have been studying Dr Seuss. Each class asked some questions of the other about their authors. It was great to be able to ask questions about each others class, school and interests as well. The students were buzzing during and after the event and are keen to participate in more google hangouts. Check out our class blog to get the student’s perspective on Google Hangout. Here is a short video of what it was like:
