Google+ Hangouts is an instant messaging and video chat platform developed by Google. It allows Google users to exchange messages and pictures, video conference, share screens, and even broadcast the meetings live via YouTube.
With all these features, Google Hangouts can be a great tool for literacy programs and for introducing the Use Digital Technology competency. It can be used for texting/messaging, photo and video sharing and group projects – even for live meetings and training sessions when face-to-face meetings are not possible.
