Museums are beginning to experiment with Google+ Hangouts on Air, a new video chat tool, to build online communities around learning, interaction, and the exploration of museums from all disciplines. It allows museums to engage directly with up to ten "windows" at a time. Hangouts on Air are auto-archived to YouTube and can be shared to Google+, embedded on websites, and shared via other social media. This session will look at experimental uses of Google+ Hangouts by museum educators. The presenters will talk about goals, results, challenges, and the wider implications of using this tool. Where can museums push this technology? How might it help drive relevance for our institutions as we progress in the 21st century? Presenters: Ryan Dodge (@wrdodger), Lisa Mazzola (@lisamazzola), Mike Murawski (@murawski27), and Stephanie Pau (@17reasons).
