Connect With Other Gifted Educators and Classes


by Bethany Johnsen

Connected Educator Month may be coming to a close, but you can still meet and share ideas with educators around the world, thanks to the innovative website and Google+ community EduHangoutSigning up connects you to teachers and classrooms that are interested in sharing great ideas and projects, from a virtual book club in which your students can discuss the text they’re reading with students from other schools, to having a “Share and Compare” in which classes from different locations learn about where others live. The Hangouts can also be used to connect with people outside the classroom, such as authors on Twitter and others who might be willing to Skype with your students.

What would you do with the endless possibilities presented by EduHangout? Learn more about the project here, and be sure to share your ideas!
