This Google+ Hangout was part of the Education On Air conference on May 2, 2012.
The students at the University Laboratory School in Hawaii have staged a coup. Like a scene out of Lord of the Flies they have begun demanding technological tools to meet their needs as individual leaders and have left their teacher powerless (so they think) in the wake of their rampaging.
This session will give you a look into an actual 7th grade classroom to see how students are adapting Google Apps for Education to facilitate their own learning. With the use of videos, student artifacts and 7th grade student presenters we will see how kids decided to take back their education and what has been the result.
