Years ago, I built a player that collects ALL the TED Talks in one handy place. HD. Also, the player is designed to promote serendipity, browsing, stumbling upon ..... so little does this happen in this day and age where we only seem to feed our present prejudices. …

Blasts from the Pasts: Free Hugs

This video was super big, mega large in 2008.  A classic and inspired so many students in so many classrooms. Free Hugs.

Change the lyrics ideas...

I'm a big fan of always exciting students with "possibility".  By that I mean, designing a lesson so that they can change and interact with the content in creative, personal ways. They can be touched by possibility - much like we are when online and using Web 2.0 tools.

One easy way to do this is to use music/song.  A "change the lyrics" activity. Find…
