Using Google+ to Turbocharge Your Personal Learning Communities and Classrooms

Over the last two weeks I’ve spent some time sharing materials with educators who are interested in opportunities to use Google+ as a tool for learning, socializing, and communicating with colleagues and students. I’ve talked about my use of Google+ previously as my tool of choice in my personal learning network. In this recent work I wanted to synthesize all of this information for people interested in using Google+ in their classrooms, or as a learning tool.

To that end I wrote a guest post for IRA’s Reading Today blog entitled “A Digital Toolbox: Demystifying Google+.” To review and comment on an earlier version of this blog post, please visit the following Google Doc.

I also developed a series of four YouTube clips walking you through the ways in which I use Google+ and helping you set up your own system.

Google+ Basics: Introduction and Profile Editing

Google+ Basics: Create your personal learning network

Google+ Basics: Use Hangouts to communicate with others

Google+ Basics: Build your own learning management system

To wrap up all of these elements I held our first TechTalk of the year focusing on Google+ and invited in Nancy Atterberry and Cathy Bosco in to work through these materials and share our thinking about the use of Google+. The video for the Hangout-on-Air is embedded below. To view the TitanPad we used for the “rundown” during the show please click here.
