Take a Laugh at Twitter

I really enjoy using Twitter. It puts me in touch with other like minded individuals that are interested in education and the use of technology and web2.0 applications with students. Each day people in my PLN share links, problem solve and sometimes just ramble or comment about what we are doing/learning. Today this link popped up today which is really funny. One of the characters in this short 4minute clip reminds me of the reaction I sometimes face when I try to tell people about twitter... it's good to be able to laugh at yourself, and this is for all those out there that love twitter too!

Sharing Inspiration

On my Twitter today a fellow tweep mentioned they were preparing to plan an art unit. This launched me into thinking about all the visual art resources that I have sitting on my computer in need of sharing. Many of you may already remember from my "7 things meme" my passion for art education, so I beavered away to create a new page on my wiki to inspire teachers of possible art lessons that can be viewed here. I quickly got some great feedback from my friends and hope that if you like what you see then you will post a comment here for me.

I'm also pleased to mention that my Te Reo Maori digital learning centre resource (that I blogged about earlier) was featured in a national ICT PD newsletter, so hopefully the use of this resource will become more widely known through this special promotion.
