Education has changed so much since I was at school in the 70s and early 80s. I spent lots of time in the school and council libraries looking for inspiration. Yep, that long ago. The video below came up on my Diigo, and so wanted to share. It’s done by a group of school students explaining the benefits of using platforms such as Twitter, Diigo, etc to gather data on air pollution in three different countries for a science project and other projects – science was popular. One male student thought of Twitter purely for entertainment until he realised that he could connect with professions around the world on Twitter to gain knowledge and information. Also using YouTube, one student welcomed the feedback on her YouTube clip, she made another one.
So have a look if you like.
