This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
This presentation discusses the affordances and constraints of using Google Apps forEducation to deliver a technology class with a hip-hop theme for secondary institutions. The goal was to increase the literacy skills of youth using a topic the students had self-expressed an interest in. The apps integrated were Google Sites, Docs, as well as Maps, Blogger, and YouTube.
