‘Hangouts in History’ - Bringing the past to life ::

Re-imagining education using Google+.
History is always a tough subject to bring to life, and even more so when a teacher is trying to transport their students back more than 700 years in time to plague-era Europe. But we had a hunch that technology might be one way to make this subject a whole lot more participatory. With this in mind, our Creative Lab teamed up with Grumpy Sailor to help a classroom of year 8 students from Bowral ‘video conference’ with 1348, in what we called a “Hangout in History”.
