Google Hangouts is Google's free video-conferencing tool that is available for teachers to use as part of the Google Apps for Education (GAFE) suite of tools. Hangouts also include a messaging and phone call feature. Up to 15 participants can join a Google Hangout at a time and screen sharing is supported. It's a great way to connect your classroom with other classrooms anywhere in the world. Google Hangouts are available for all staff in the TDSB and are accessible through Academic Workspace (aw.tdsb.on.ca). Hangouts are currently unavailable for students with their TDSB GAFE accounts.
