Using Google+ to Collaborate

This Wiki is being hosted by Google, as are the other Web 2.0 tools teachers can use in order to make this design project a success.

Through the use of Google+, teachers will be able to collaborate on unit plans by creating and joining Circles, taking part in Google Group dicussions and having face-to-face interactions with one another via Google Hangouts. To learn more about what each of these Google+ features are and how they work, please visit: http://www.google.com/+/learnmore/

Creating this Wiki has been a group effort and in order to do this all 6 of us teachers came together using Google+ to collaborate on ideas to put it together. We all joined Google+, created circles to add each other to and arranged times to meet up on Google Hangouts. We also used Google Docs to put our project report together, and this is another handy Google tool that teachers can use to collaborate on ideas together. To understand how Google Docs works, please visit: http://support.google.com/docs/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=49008

Also, as mentioned on our Home page, interested teachers can join our Google Group, Edutech Conspiracy. Once membership is approved, you can introduce yourself to other group members and start collaborating on units there. Each unit that is currently posted on this Wiki has a corresponding thread on the Google Groups page where the unit can be discussed with the original author as well as other collaborators.
