Project wiki / Education Pack

tags: twitter, hz08, hzmeta, connectingpeople, education, all_teachers, edu_trends

The educational “pack” of twitterers — join this wiki and add yours — this helps newcomers find twitterers grouped along a common topic. I'm exploring to find people in other areas to learn from!

Youth Twitter

tags: connectingpeople, hz08, hzmeta, mashup, education, Web2.0

Youth twitter site where students are usingtwitter to communicate with one another in short 140 character bursts. I always see fascinating things here.

YouTube – Mathmaticious

tags: math, hz08, hzmeta, education, usercontent, video, arts_entertainment

This mathematicious video took a long time to make. I love it! Math teachers will love this.

This is something for the horizon project student to review. This is Funny but it is an example of how videos can be made on any topic — a math teacher could have students see how many of these terms they recognize.

I loved this video! It was great the way they made a popular song into something educational. I thought it was simply hilarious!

@Charlie @Anon — We have a similar taste in humor then, did you notice at the end how this boy filmed, produced, edited, and acted — what an amazing experience!
