Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 4, 2013 10:59 PM

Put together Google+ and Connected Classrooms and the result is great virtual field trips foryour classroom. Today Google+ and Connected Classroom have launched this new iniative. To learn more head over to Connected Classroom as you have to submit an application to join. Your school will have also have to support Google+. With budget cuts in education this is a great opportunity for students to experience trips to locations that they may never be able to visit in person.

Great examples of taking unique spaces and places into your classroom.  Ignite Your Audience is very keen to create an experience like this for the Macpherson Homestead in Carnamah, Western Australia. http://www.carnamah.com.au/homestead

Love the ideas this presents. I think Google+ has lots of valuable possibilities, if adoption can be found. Trying to tie it as another Facebook just won't work. They need to find their niche and adopt it. This seems like a great use of their resource.

Google Inc. is challenging Facebook Inc. by using a controversial tactic: requiring people to use the Google+ social network.
