Interactive News Presented To Students via Google+ Hangout

25 09 2011

On September 24, 2011 While I was attending PodCamp Boston 6 at the Microsoft N.E.R.D. center in Boston I took part in a Google+ hangout with +Sarah Hill The Interactive Anchor/Reporter at KOMU-TV. Host of U_News @ 4, an interactive conversation about “U” and today’s news.

As Sarah spoke to auditorium of students and parents calling us her international inner circle.

All had heard of Google Plus but none had heard of Hangouts.

We demonstrated one and you should have seen the look on their faces. Don’t you just love seeing the first Hangout aha moment?

+Peter McDermott simulated a breaking news event on his Ipad2 walking around neighborhood, I was impressed with the video quality.

Thanks for helping me demonstrate Hangout’s use in TV News +Kim Beasley +Bruce Garber +Mike Downes +Laurent Jean Philippe Ravalec +Dolidh Young +Alejandro Fernandez-Lovo +Joseph Puglisi
