Really love this new look Google+
It seems so much tidier and user friendly. Just wish photos was easier to navigate and create albums - any suggestions out there? Video Tutorial Welcome as I haven't found one on Google+ that answers my questions and I hate fumbling when I don't have time!
Thanks all :-)

Not often I find both teacher and student friendly literacy resources! Must have teacher friends!
One of the coolest resources ever...current, relevant and useful for any classroom level! 
Unlimited access to hundreds of leveled news articles and Common Core–aligned quizzes, with new articles every day.

When we decide that a Synchronous learning space (like hangouts - for example) will add a more 'real feel' to learning what are some implications that others have discovered?  

I have been involved in online courses where these are used to present material and then assessed and unfortunately the ability to feel you've achieved a good grade is lessened by the technology's inadequacies (or yours with it).  I hate thinking that I do this to my students.

Any experiences/research (Falloon, 2012) out there to increase my understanding appreciated!

p.s. I was part of the cohort for this research

ICS rolls out to the Galaxy Tablets in July to August. Looking forward to seeing ICS on the tablet. Especially as Samsung, in their ihfinite wisdom, have seen fit to not roll it out to the Galaxy S. And now we jave Jellybean starting to appear.

Make the time to hear this especially if you think your life is missing something! Laugh, love and look for the positive...
 
12 min video on pianist Alice, born Nov 23 1903, sharing Longevity secrets; she lives in her own flat in London without :) assistance while practicing 3 hours piano daily. In this/other videos Alice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alice_Herz-Sommer) credits her Longevity to "looking at the bright side of every person and event", laughing, harmonious music, positive words said to others, loving everyone, smiling (7 min video: Ron Gutman: The hidden power of smiling). Studies show optimistic thoughts can slow aging: http://goo.gl/bRDvq. Joy releases rejuvenating hormones, while negative emotions release aging stress hormones. Some MDs think peaceful music increases longevity: http://goo.gl/4xBCm. Soothing music helps plants grow faster & healthier: http://goo.gl/Xyn11
