Virtual Field Trips with Hangouts

Google Hangouts can be used for virtual field trips through Google's "Connected Classrooms" project. This connects classrooms with people and places all over the world.

Google describes it as follows: "Virtual Field Trips connects cultural institutions like museums, zoos and aquariums with schools and non-profits around the country via Google+ Hangouts On Air. Hangouts On Air allow institutions to share universal access to unique cultural and educational experiences regardless of geographical and financial restrictions."
