Google+ - more reasons it's great for educators

Posted in Labels: ,

I'm a big fan of Google+. I have a lot of educators and technology people in my circles and I'm trying to get more of my friends to join. I also have some former students who use Google+ and I'm setting up circles for my classes.

A recent announcement that Facebook will start putting ads directly in the news stream, and the fact that Facebook is full of apps, games, and nonsense, and security and privacy issues, all contribute to my continually decreasing use of Facebook. It's also blocked at school.

I've written about Google+ before and ways to use it in school and I've found some more good resources about Google+ to help people get started using it. It has more features and options than Twitter, but less junk than Facebook. The pages feature is also a great tool for educators and schools and hangouts makes video chat easy. You can easily share you blog posts and tweets to Google+ too.

You can find me on Google+ here.

Here are some resources to get you started:
