12 Google+ Communities For and By Hawaii Educators

+Chad Nacapuy, who comes up with many of the ideas for our Google Rocks! Hawaii HOA shows, has listed here several Hawaii-created, educational Google+ communities for our Best Google+ Communities for Educators show tonight. I thought I'd add to Chad's list and post it here.

Are there others? Let me know and I'll add them to this list.

(Public communities are a click away to join, many private communities require a request to join.)

1. ACE 21  (Administrator Certificate for Excellence) - A collaborative space for Hawaii's educators. "The purpose of this G+ Community is to connect communities of all scales (classroom, discipline, school, complex, state, national and international) in a single, collaborative space. By leveraging Google+, educators are able to access a deep well of resources while also contributing to the shared body of knowledge. There will be opportunities for live webinars, and sessions as well as synchronous and asynchronous professional development modules." - private - Owner: Marybeth Baldwin
