Instant Messaging (Google Hangout / Skype)

  • The district recognizes the importance of instant messaging and the value it brings to both professional tasks and classroom instructional opportunities. Google Hangouts is an instant messaging service that provides text, audio, and video communication.  It has been integrated into Gmail and works within the browser so there are no downloads needed to send text messages.  Video conferencing image

Below you will find the districts expectations for the proper professional use of Skype.
