My communities have been so important to my profession as an educator — to think and work with the best to create an innovative education revolution. Three of my favorite are #clmooc, #etmooc, and the #GEG WA communities. Visit them and see the engagement, the relationships, the real neighborhoods of learning.
I appreciate how Google continuously upgrades its apps and provides GAFE so our students are learning the tools and research they need in the future. However, I learned how to be the teacher of those students through the creative work within those Google Plus communities. I feel a little betrayed; we all joined in and made it work — used the potential, and built our connections into neighborhoods we frequented as needed.
My friend, Terry Elliot, called this move expected, but Unbelievably Crazy. Well, I didn’t expect this, and I am saddened by the news.
