Introduction



This project is a unique opportunity for middle school students to communicate and collaborate with other students using Google+ as the primary telecommunications tool.  Students will be focusing on obesity and look at how their daily decisions can effect their lives.  Students will also be using Google Docs as a means of sharing information they have collected and will be able to discuss their work using Google+ Stream, Google+ Sparks, Google+ Circles and Google+ Hangouts.  Through Google+ Hangouts students will be able to see and talk to each other face to face via video chat and begin to understand how Google+ could make working with someone halfway across the world easier.  As you navigate the pages of this site you will see how Google+ works, how Google+ allows students to collaborate and how students will learn about obesity through collaboration.
