Story
Introduction
I love MUSIC. I'm a big jazzhead, and love neo-soul just as much. I currently work at Google Inc. on the Google for Education team (google.com/edu).

I post here about Google products, but my opinion is my own, not that of the company.
Bragging rights
I know how to juggle, do stilts, and chinese yo-yo.

Rumor has it, if you look at your Apple Watch through your Google Glass, your brain automatically synthesizes all MOOCs through an adaptive, ad-based, proprietary, personalized learning environment chock full of super useful learning analytics; and the world implodes into a parallel ed tech dimension!

Time to get rockin! :) +Carolyn Wendell 
 
Today we are pleased to announce the launch of Google Educator Groups (GEG),  a program supporting communities of educators who learn, share, and inspire each other to meet the needs of their students through technology solutions, both in the classroom and beyond. GEG empowers educators around the world to expand their social and professional networks, and gain skills to deliver the best possible education through open technology. 

GEG takes place both online and offline, and provides a space for educators to build relationships, collaborate, and learn through Google+ communities and hangouts or in-person events and workshops. Whether you’re a teacher, professor, or principal, anyone is welcome to join GEG to learn. Each group is organized by a local volunteer (GEG leader) and is entirely independent from Google. 

Interested in joining a GEG or starting a new one? Check out the website at www.google.com/landing/geg to learn more, spread the word, and get involved. See you in GEG!
