Task 1: Join the USD 443 Share community on Google+
A Google+ community is a controlled social site that allows users to share updates, links, pictures, and videos. This will be a great place for workshop participants to share our work and learn from each other. Jayne and Kara are just starting to explore Google+, so be patient with us as we learn along with you :-)
To access your Google+ page (you automatically have one associated with each of your Google accounts), simply log in to your school Google account (email@example.com) and click on the +YourName in the upper right portion of your Google Drive page.
To join USD 443 Share, click on Home in the upper left of the Google+ page, hover over Communities, and then use the Search Bar to search for USD 443 Share. Jayne and Kara will quickly approve your request.
Blogging is a great way for you and your students to publish work and especially writing to a larger audience and receive constructive feedback. Feedback can be on their learning and/or views if it's a hot topic issue, which can be great for eliciting passion in our writers.

2. Decide which platform is your better fit.
3. Create an account and post your first blog post.
