Google Plus is turning two and it seems like we have been using it forever. The educational potential of this social networking website is huge and it is just getting better and better. I know some of you are not fully into it but I am pretty sure once you get used to it you will find it way more interesting than many other social media sites including Facebook.
I do spend a considerable amount of time on Google Plus interacting and sharing resources with teachers and educators on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning page. I also use Google Plus to stay updated of what others are talking about particularly in the field of ed tech.
There are several other ways to use Google Plus for educational purposes. But to tap into the educational potential of this platform you need to understand how it works and what possibilities it can offer to you. In this regard, I am sharing with you some of the articles and guides I have written and published earlier. I am also embedding a set of video tutorials created by folks in Googl Plus to help you get your feet wet in "Google Plusing".
