Connecting Students with Google Hangouts

After 2 days of being immersed in conversation about technology enabled learning, focusing on using technology to get to deeper learning, and engage the relationship aspect of the possibilities with George Couros, I was thrilled to hear how WRDSB  teacher Ryan Wettlaufer is using Google Hangouts with his students.

To me, this is a perfect example of the SAMR model.  Ryan has thoughtfully and skillfully created real life opportunities for his students by leveraging his personal learning network (PLN) giving his French language program a whole new meaning.  I was able to connect with Ryan for an interview via Google Hangouts.  Learn about Ryan’s insights in our interview.

Thank you Ryan for taking time to share your leadership and best practices, and a perfect topic for Connected Educators month.
