Google Hangouts - your FREE (portable) document camera!


A very blurry picture of Matt & me
@ ISTE 2017
This morning, on my commute to work, I was listening to the Google Teacher Tribe (#GTTribe)...it is a weekly tradition.  I love the podcast because it has great ideas for new and veteran Google users alike.  This morning, one tip that Matt Miller (aka Jimmy Matt) shared really wowed me -
How to use Google Hangouts as a (free!!!) document camera.

Here is what he shared.
                                     
Hook your computer up to a projector and start a Google Hangout.  On your mobile device join the hangout.  Select the box for the mobile device so it is the one projecting.  Put a document in front of the camera and it is shared!  You can also do this as you walk around the class with the device, or pass the device to have students share their work where they are seated.

Such an easy and extremely useful hack.  Thanks Jimmy Matt! 

Note: This also works if you want to show how to do something on a mobile device.  Generally, I use airplay on my Mac but it doesn't always work and this is a great way to have devices on different platforms talk to one another (e.g., PC desktop and iOS device).
