Step 3: Explore

Consider how you might utilize the content that you find. Here are 3 examples.

The Atlanta Zoo: Videos are posted daily of what the animals at the Zoo are doing-follow them, and show videos periodically that match your curriculum standards, or just for a quick brain break!

Alice Keeler: Want to follow an educational Google Apps Guru? Follow Alice on Twitter and Google Plus!

NASA Earth Observatory: Daily videos of earth provide student opportunities in Math, Science, and Geography!

Elementary Educators Community: Share content and learn from others in this Community of like-minded educators!

I think that you will find that if you begin to explore Google Plus, you'll find lots of people to follow, Communities to join, and Collections worth subscription.
