IGNITE
General Session IV
Fri. 10:30am-11:15am 

Track: IGNITE

Abstract
Virtual learning has become a necessary skill for prospective teachers and administrators. My hybrid courses use Google Hangouts for instructional time instead of a traditional classroom environment. This presentation will focus on the learning dimensions of the virtual classroom as well as the technical considerations needed.
