  • @le_lapin Yes, Google+ is a much better resource! It's funny, I was so anxious to get the wave invite -then it just fell flat. Google+ is recommended.

  • Great job. On a side note, Google having discontinued Buzz, it might be necessary to take this into account, update and replace with Google+

  • Brilliant presentation, great information, & beautifully clean slides! Though I have to say, I find 'The Educators PLN' a bit pompous. I'm a Clasroom 2.0, ISTE Community, & TL Ning grrl. Is this preso Creative Commons?
