All Must Be Shared: Google+ Takes Your Class into the Future

In addition to creating Circles for selective sharing, Google+ also empowers you with the ability to create Communities. Either publicly accessible or by invitation only, Communities serve as a digital agora for interactions based on similar interests. While many educators are beginning to join Communities relative to topics such as educational technology, gamification, Google Apps for Education, and online learning, Communities can also be utilized for classroom collaboration and sharing.

Whether you flip your instruction or not, connecting your students in a Google+ Community serves as a more interactive classroom website where announcements can be made; discussion topics can be posted; and assignments can be distributed, collaborated on, and collected providing you with a medium to deliver timely and authentic feedback as well.
