My friends call me bumblebee. Definitely not a nod Transformers. Bees worry me. I live in the zip code of unsettled which includes the property of occasionally terrified. Two friends and I hiked on the Appalachian Trail. 3 days, 30 miles later, I became Bumble Bee.
Google Spaces was essential gear planning the hike. 3 friends, 4 kids, 2 fathers, 1 trip with 0 free time. Detailed planning became possible using Google Spaces.
Google nails the small space real estate. I’ve long trumpeted the benefits of Google+. Communities and TopTopics are two features overlooked and undervalued. Establishing a familiar yet original experience, Google Spaces is a venue for interesting topics.
Search for content, add links or pictures without hassle. There are no superficial barriers when you are ready to chime in on conversations. The layout uncluttered, rich with essentials necessary to plan with a team. Google Spaces lasts as long as necessary, fading out as conversations come to a natural close. A new way to discuss content, infusing relevance through the experience.
“Okay so we have to change our plans because of bears.”
Best line of the trip posted on Google Space by Andy. While planning, we discovered bear activity was standard for sections of the Smokey Mountains. Maps, blogs, and even hand made Etsy loin clothes found shelter in our Google Space. Everything you ever wanted and a little of nothing you need. The platform promotes natural discussion. Covering essentials, as well as the occasional side bar.
“I think I might not bring my tent”
Planning a trek isn’t atop of most folks to do list. Planning with your fellow American History teteachers should be. The start of a new year brings the blessings of fresh discussion with peers. The parking lot can become the default venue for conversations you share with coworkers. Dont let it. Google Spaces navigates team planning, in expert fashion.
Plan you next Trek or PLC with Google Spaces and let us know what you think.
