It's good to be here. Please allow me to introduce myself. My wife Helen and I run music classes for babies and toddlers across the UK (www.musicbus.com
) and I'm primarily interested in this platform for two reasons.
One, to see how Connected Classrooms might work for us. We're already using hangouts as a means of communicating with our licensees but I'm keen to see if there's scope to use hangouts as a means of encouraging people who may not otherwise be able to get to a class to participate online. I'd value your input, ideas and experiences in that area.
Secondly I live in a beautiful and historic part of the UK and am happy to explore the potential for running hangouts from my local area. Since it's November and coming up for Thanksgiving some of you may be interested in seeing footage (via iPhone/iPad) of the Mayflower Steps in Plymouth for instance. I've included a #google
link to give you some background info on the last place the Pilgrims stood this side of the Atlantic before sailing for the New World.
I look forward to connecting with you all. Please feel free to PM me as well as comment here.
