Day 3 Gmail Calendar and  Hangouts

Got better at organising my Google Calendar to get it to work for me and help organise my life. It was also very useful to set up a meeting with other collaborators. I learned to turn on and set a very useful feature on Gmail which would allow you to "undo send," perhaps very useful if you forward an incorrect attachment or email and you wish to undo that within a few seconds before it's actually sent.

I used to use MSN Messenger to communicate with my siblings who resided in Australia and South Africa. Having learned about hangouts , I feel confident that this is a way I can have a 6 way communication with all my siblings who live in different countries.. I could even use it with a small group of students at my school, not a large group since it can be time consuming to set up and  you probably need a few confident users to help with setting up.

We got into groups of 3 and we commented on a student's  creativity in writing on hangouts and that was really exciting to be able to complete the entire process from inviting the group via. Calendar to recording the screen and sound.

I do apologise for the annoying sound which came about as a result of having the volume on the microphone turned up too high. That's something I will remember to correct on my next screen

  1. Kia ora Kaysee, Great to see your learning continuing from afar. I am reading your post in Melbourne airport. You should see Melbourne appear on your blog world map, and in your statistics I will be the Mac using visitor from Melbourne!!

    I agree that this will be fabulous tool to use with your siblings in multiple countries. That is how I connect with my brothers.

    Your group conversation around the blog post from Pt England was well done. You manage the technology skilfully and had a professional conversation about the learning occurring. Well done. I was wondering what the group would take from that conversation into their own create activities with their own classes in the week to come?
