What Did They Tweet?

Say Good-bye to March 2010 edition of the What Did They Tweet weekly series!

Let’s see what our Personal Learning Network (PLN) tweeted about in education and social media.

Video: The Amazing Youtube Choir

Social media continues to amaze me. I believe a new online collaborative art form has emerged in which several people contribute to create a masterpiece. This virtual choir conducted by Eric Whitacre and produced by Scott Haines will show you what I mean by a collaborative masterpiece. Read the rest of the story of how this was created here.

  1. Again the PLN comes through with incredible resources, videos, and links. The social media choir is such a very neat idea!
    I am really looking forward to Sir Ken Robinson’s webinar, it is sure to be a great one!

  2. The choir is amazing. I love seeing things that show how powerful the web can be at bringing all sorts of people from all over the world together. I just want to sit all of the most stubborn educators down and have them watch this and show them the good they are keeping from their students by staying in the chalkboard age. Thanks for the share Shelly.
