Hi +MaryBeth Hertz 

We're looking for other teachers and students using Hangouts in their classroom. Join us on Teachers Teaching Teachers http://edtechtalk.com/ttt this Wednesday 6PM PT/9PM ET. We'll be talking about how we are using Hangouts On Air.

+Johanna Paraiso, +Chris Sloan  and I have started using Hangouts On Air to connect students. Check out our early episodes of Youth Voices Live! http://youthvoices.net/live

Have you been using Hangouts in the classroom or with other teachers?

This really puts our "education crisis" in perspective.

I can't even imagine that this issue is present in our world at this time--unbelievable to think a young girl has to risk her life to stand up for education for all.  Why don't her tormenters realize that education holds the key to a promising, peaceful world.

Yes, Arta, you need to extend your screen or mirror it. See the section at this link that gives the keyboard shortcut. http://www.omgchrome.com/10-shortcuts-every-chromebook-owner-should-know/
 
Chomebook question-- Is there any special trick to connect to projector?   I could connect, and it would show the home screen, but would not display any window I opened up.
