Check out the Google Air EdTech Conference, May 2!


Curious about how Google+ and Google Hangouts work in an educational setting? So am I!

This Wednesday, I'll be participating in (viewing) the first Google Air EdTech Conference via Google Hangouts. It's called

EducationonAir

I invite you to join me when you have a free moment, either in the Hawaiian Studies Room, or wherever you and your laptop want to be.

I've made these choices, from the fantastic Conference Schedule:
8:00am - 8:50am Becoming a Google Search Ninja - Hangout on Air live streamed on the Google+ page of Derrick Waddell (Session Twitter hashtag: #Searchtips)

9:00am - 9:50am The World is Your Oyster: Using Google Docs and Google+ to Connect with the World - Hangout on Air livestreamed on the Google+ page of Wendy Gorton (Session Twitter hashtag: #g+edu)

10:00am - 10:50am Digital Literacy & Citizenship - Hangout on Air streamed on the Google+ page of Google in Education Moderator: Kelly Mendoza of Common Sense Media (Session Twitter hashtag: #digcit)

12:00pm - 12:50pm - Google Apps and Other Products in a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Environment - Hangout on Air livestreamed on the Google+ page of Juan De Luca (Session Twitter hashtag: #googlebyod)
1:00pm - 1:50 pm - Harnessing the Full Power of the Web - Hangout on Air livestreamed on the Google+ page of James Sanders (Session Twitter hashtag: #edu1:1)
Feel free to stop by any time, and if you'd like help setting up your own viewing of the other great sessions being offered (no registration required), give me a shout.
