Google Keep is one of my favorite tools.  In my classroom (no access to hangouts with kids) we use it as an alert to the teacher.  The student makes a 'post it' with a question or need and shares with me.  It pops up on my screen and I know they're looking for help or reassurance on something.  Great way to connect with students without having them wave their hand in the air!!
