Free Technology for Teachers Edu Hangouts Teaching is Elementary: Using Google Hangout in Education - 10 Ways to Use in the Elementary Classroom I'm no expert - especially when it comes to Google+ Hangout. In fact, I've only used it a couple of times. However, I can see the many and varied possibilities for use in an elementary classroom. Classes can collaborate in ways not been done before! English Language Arts: 1. 2. Writing: 3. 4. Math: 5. 6: Math Mysteries: Participating classes will be introduced to a Math Mystery via the Hangout. Science: 7. 8. Social Studies: 9. 10.
