Google Plus - tips for using in education, facts and data infographic

Google Plus (Google+) is Google's Social Networking service. I love it. You can create circles (groups of people) and only share things with the circles you choose, can have Hangouts (video conferences), share resources, have conversations, and much more. Google+ doesn't have all the ads and games that Facebook does and has a cleaner layout. I think it's a great resource for educators to use with colleagues and with students. You can share resources, have discussions and learn from colleagues. With students, you can post resources, have a Hangout as a help session, and much more.

I've written about Google+ in education many times:
