I am one of 8 Speech and Language Pathologists in my district.  We never have a chance to meet to discuss professional and district issues.  Is anyone using Google Hangouts to meet with colleagues?

Last year as a Reading Coach we used Google Hangouts to talk with Principals and teachers all over the district.  I really liked it.  They could sign in and leave whenever they needed to.  

I have thought about using Google Hangouts with parents, especially parents who are good with technology.  I think this would be nice.

How does this work exactly?  I am aware of Google Hangouts but don't know how it really works.  I am one of four elementary counselors in my district.  We get together every now and then but not as often as we would like due to scheduling issues.  Perhaps this is a way that we could "get together" more often?  How private is it? Can others join or do they have to be invited?  I'd be interested in hearing more about it.  Perhaps I should see if Simple K12 has a webinar on it!!

Lots of people in my district were using it now it is restricted for some reason.  I am the instructional technology specialist on my campus.   We can have it turned back on by request for our IP address.  

It is fairly easy but does require some practice.  If there is interest we could do a small group on the weekend and run through it.

I was thinking about using the Simple K12 community to get more comfortable with Hangouts.  So, nice to explore with friends.  I will start a hangout after the webinar Virtual Explorations and Field Trips with Google Tools, Presented by Jerry Swiatek that will be this Saturday, April 25, 2015 @ 11:00:00 AM (12:00:00 PM EDT).  Just message me here on Simple K12 and let me know you gmail address.  

If you don't answer the hangout call no problem.

I have not used Google Hangouts to meet other education specialists but am interested in doing so and seeing the responses of others and their experiences.

Talk to Verna Ann about it, she is using it for our summer class meetings. It worked out pretty well!
