7 Google+ Communities

Just about a year ago I wrote a post outlining why educators should be at least starting to play with Google+. Since writing that post my use of Google+ has gone through ups and downs for sure. But around April or so I started reading my Google+ stream more frequently and now I head to Google+ before Flipboard on my Nexus 7 and iPad.

For me what has really caused the change is the communities that now exist in Google+. Powerful, though provoking, idea sharing, helpful communities of people learning together. If you want to give Google+ a try or want to give it another go I think findind a few communities you are interested in is a good way to start. So here are links to a couple of my favorite Google+ communities.

Gamification in Education

20% Time in Education

Google Apps in Education

Mindcraft in Education

Technology & Innovation in Education

Google Apps Scripts for Education

Ask a Google Education Guru

This is a great place to start. Join some of these communities that peak your interest then go search for others you might be interested in and see what you find. There’s some good stuff in Google+ for sure and it’s only going to get better.

If you are a blogger and like most bloggers you share your blog posts on Twitter. It might be time to consider sharing them on Google+ as well.
