Hey, everyone... you may have seen the news that Google+ is being closed down for consumers. From a professional standpoint, I know there are many other community tools out there that can help meet our members' needs. From a personal perspective, I'm kind of crushed. :( Over 5 years and 5,000+ members together... there have been a lot of resources shared and support given in this space, and for that, I am so grateful. This community will continue to stay open... Google announced the process to shut it down will be complete by next August. I'll be surveying this group to see which possibilities for movement to another space would best support your learning. If you have any ideas, feel free to share below. Thanks so much for being here and for helping make this space an important resource for so many.

Update 10/10 - sent out to G Suite Admin today: Hello G Suite Administrator,

We recently announced that we are winding down the consumer version of Google+ over the next 10 months. This change does not impact your usage of Google+ as a G Suite for Education customer. Google continues to invest in new features for Google+ for our G Suite for Education customers, and we’ll share more details on the G Suite blog in the coming days. You can expect the following:

-A fresh, clean look for the education version of Google+ on the web and mobile
-Additional capabilities for admins to be able to review and moderate posts made by employees, if needed
-New admin dashboards to view post analytics and engagement metrics

*This community is owned and managed by a non-Edu account. So I'll continue to be looking into the best way to migrate to a different space. Thanks for all of your feedback thus far!*

Hello, community members! This is your friendly reminder to keep this space question and discussion-based! If you post a link to your blog post, it should be a) introduced by a blurb by you indicating why it's valuable to the community b) added to the Resources to Share or appropriate category (not Discussion) and c) not spammed across several communities. We will remove posts and accounts who take advantage of sharing links in this space if it appears the members are not also contributing in other ways.

We are growing and growing... over 5,300 members now! Established in 2012, this is one of the busiest and most exciting communities on Google+! I know our members gain valuable insights here, and the reason we moderate is to keep it a productive learning space for our members doing great work for kids and teachers. Thanks again to my co-moderators +Doug Alichwer and +Susan Ferdon!

Thanks for sharing and learning with us!
