Daily I see posts and articles on how Google+ is the new Twitter for educators. I am no where near ready to leave my Twitter PLN (although most of the educators I follow are already in my Google+ circles), I am using my Google+ communities to learn daily. As we make the transition to devices that are more friendly to Google Apps in Education, I believe that we can learn and grow if we use Google+ Communities. The link below is a good article on how to get started with Google Communities.
We are excited that our teachers, students, and staff have some time to catch their breath and enjoy a beautiful Alabama summer. We are also excited to have time to plan for the upcoming school year! At HHS we will have some shifts in devices over the next couple of years starting with Chromebooks for our freshmen in the fall. We will continue to support our 10-12th grade teachers with the integration of technology using iPads, but will also add lots of opportunities for teachers using Google in Education. We will post lots of resources here for teachers and will continue to collaborate and learn together over the summer. Enjoy!

Yesterday we had our first PD session for 9th grade teachers and most of these teachers received their new Dell Chromebook. Now the fun begins! We will start focusing on Chromebooks and Google in Education with this group as we continue to support and increase our integration of iPads in grades 10-12. Below you will find useful links from Nikki Robertson for those who are looking for additional Chromebook resources:
