With the lack of time, substitutes, and money we need a solution to help solve the issue. We have the possibility of communicating through social media, but how can this be successful to a community? This session will focus on learning how to engage your community of teachers by connecting them through Google+. Your learning community will be able to share resources, questions, advice, tips, and showcase student projects. As @E_Sheninger stated “Connectedness is no longer an option, but rather a standard and a professional obligation.” Let’s give teachers an option to drive their learning where and when they want to in a timely manner. #sharingiscaring
