This Google tool integrates seamlessly with GMail, Picasa, Google Hangouts, Drive, Chrome, and other Google products. This is helpful in finding, using, and managing all your materials. Use Google Circles to create groups of friends, acquaintances, and colleagues. Users are easily added and removed within Circles. Photos can easily be tagged and identified in Google+. Privacy is easily managed including a variety of privacy levels on your content. Share content easily even within Hangouts. In Google+, individual posts can be muted (which is nice when you are not interested in them and do not wish to see them anymore!). Be sure to download the mobile app for Google+ to stay connected on the go and even upload and tag your photos.

In the Classroom

Connect all content, pictures, and other materials together. Students who already have a Google account already have access to Google+. Users are normally invited to "join" via an email message. This may be problematic in the many schools that do not permit student email access. Note that notifications sent by Google Docs may also land in "junk mail" folders or be blocked by spam filters. We suggest that you experiment with a small group of students to determine what will work in your particular situation. One option is to set up the groups with the teacher as a "member" but have students work from home, using their personal email addresses, for group projects. Make sure you are protecting the safety of student work and identity and are within your school's Acceptable Use Policy.
