Google+ just released! Our early Thanksgiving present to EDU.
Google+ is now open for K-12 Google Apps. We have enabled it for all teachers here at Norris. (We can enable it for students if staff have a need for their students to use this service, but that will come at a later date for our Norris Google Apps.) I just put together a quick overview in this blog article: http://goo.gl/Vsn7b  We will be putting together a few inservices for this in the next several weeks, so watch your emails!
