[TIPS] The Exploding Walls Project

Who says Twitter is useless? (Ok… but I won’t say it any longer!) Today I had it running while I was working and a twit came through from kjarrett which pointed me to this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjq41_HETdU

 

It’s the “Exploding Walls” video produced by Mr Mayo and his 8th grade English students. Take a look. It does a nice job of showing the effectiveness of using today’s tools to open up learning – OUTSIDE the walls of the school.

 

Nice job, kids! As Pink Floyd would say, “Tear down the wall!”

 

Reminder to teachers: Youtube blocked? Paste that video’s address into the field in step 1 here: http://www.zamzar.com/url/ and in step 2 choose mov (or whatever format you wish). Give it your email address and it will convert the video to your format and send you a link where you can download it.
