Content + Communicate = Google+

Getting started with Google+

If you haven't yet had the chance to check out Google+ please watch the video below to take a quick tour of the Google+ home page. Please note that if Google+ has not been enabled for your school Google account, you can access Google+ with any private Google account.
Google+ Intro

Content + Communicate = Google+

Start with setting up your Google+ profile

You can customize your Google+ profile with your own images, background information and contact information. You also have the ability to control who you share your profile information with. The video below will walk you through setting up your Google+ profile.
Google+: Set Up Your Profile

Next add people to your circles

You can create circles for your friends, family, co-workers, etc. You can customize and reorder the circles and put people in more than one circle. When you share content through Google+ use your circles to decide who to share with.

Then join communities

Communities are created by people to share content about a similar topic. For example, you will want to join the "WEMTA PLC" and "WI DPI School Libraries PLC" communities. You can actively participate in the community - or just learn from others. Remember the community can help you learn and share about any topic.
