Google Hangouts at LT15UK (Part 1)

I should have written this before today…but I’ve had some epic Tech fails this week. Anyway, not to dwell on that.

At this year’s Learning Technologies conference, I’m still part of the social media team, tweeting from the backchannel, but today I will also be hosting the Room for Reflection / Google Hangouts.

This is a the first time this will be happening at the conference, and its a nice additional way to engage people from outside the conference, and let them participate in the action away form the Twitter stream.

Technical support and top notch video equipment  and filming for these sideshows are supplied by Dreamtek. You can see a previous hangout I participated in with Don Taylor and David Gelles here:

As with anything that you do for the first time. There is a little apprehension as to how these might go. So, I’ll be reflecting on my experiences post – conference.

I’ve been using Google Hangouts more and more these days. To consult with clients, have online meetings and will be utilising it more to deliver training and online discussion in the near future. So watch this space.
