The nature of our work at DST means that we don’t often get to engage in face-to-face collaboration with fellow coaches or encounter feeling pulled in many different directions because we can’t be in more than one place at one time. Google Hangouts (GHO) can remove the geographical distance barrier and allow face-to-face collaboration to take place anytime, from anywhere with Internet connectivity. Learn the tools and features that make this tool a powerful way to work with fellow coaches and/or school or district staff across the distance.

Learning Outcomes |After this session, you will be able to:

  • Understand what GHO is and what it can do
  • Experience a GHO and some of its features
  • Start and participate in your own GHO

Taking the Face to Face Online | 60 minutes

Reflection | 15 minutes
