How Google Hangouts can Enhance School Communication Google has been quite busy in and around classrooms these days. Google Classrooms and free email archiving, new updates from Google for Education, are just two examples that show Google is serious about education.

Most K-12 teachers know that students spend three hours to six hours every day using digital media. The challenge, as a recent report by the Consortium of School Networking makes clear, is that both teachers and administrators "struggle with what these new applications mean in terms of school policies and practices." Administrators CoSN polled said that when it comes to digital tools in the classroom, "they just did not know how to proceed." This state of affairs will soon change, predicts Holly Willis, director of academic programs at the University of Southern California's Institute for Multimedia Literacy, as the emerging field of "digital humanities" motivates academics to reach out to K-12 schools with teacher training, curriculum support, and other resources deemed crucial to research and practice of what has been dubbed digital literacy.

Different Ways of Looking at How to Use Edtech in K-12 Classrooms With many schools returning to in-person learning after more than a year of remote or hybrid, many teachers feel conflicted about their technology usage going forward: Some want a hiatus from tech, while others have a bring-it-on attitude and aim to build on hard-earned technical skills.

Each of you can look at all of the ideas and put check marks beside the ones that interest you, and then that will drive the topics that we discuss today." I leaned over to my husband, Brad Flickinger, an "unconference expert," and whispered that I'd love to learn more about educating teachers about technology. He told me to go up and write it down.

Online Tools for Teaching & Learning Google Hangouts is a video messaging tool developed by Google that allows users to collaborate at a distance, instant message, video chat, and share photos, computer screens, and files. Google Hangouts can be accessed online or through mobile apps available for iOS and Android. Chat histories and files are saved online, and they are available to be synced between different devices. For educators, Google Hangouts is a great tool to engage students in collaboration outside of the classroom. It overcomes geographical barriers and provides more opportunities for face-to-face interaction.

the project Everyday, we are bombarded with television images, video games, music, and magazine articles/newspapers that give importance to conflict and war. Violence has become commonplace and accepted as part of our society and, for some, it is a way of life. It is our hope that through the Pinwheels for Peace project, we can make a public visual statement about our feelings about war/ peace/ tolerance/ cooperation/ harmony/ unity and, in some way, maybe, awaken the public and let them know what we are thinking. This is not political.
