How are Educators Using Google Plus Hangouts?

World-Shaker wants to know how educators are using the new Google+ and we’re curious too! Have you joined G+ yet?
As more people join Google’s new social network, Google+, they’re figuring out how to take advantage of some of the innovative uses for the site.
One obvious use for educators is to boost their personal and professional network, particularly as the service offers more granular controls for privacy and sharing. Within these Circles, as each designated group is called, educators and students can create discussion groups without having to worry about the awkward or troubling “friend” or “follower” relationships that come with Facebook and Twitter.
This is a pretty compelling idea. I’d say that once more people end up on Google+, we may be able to look at Tumblr Teacher hangouts :o)
