Embed with a Google book

Google book search has recently added a new feature which allows you embed sections of your chosen book into your blog etc. Here is an embeded graphic from Oliver Twist.

And here is the same thing as embeded text from the book:

The Adventures of Oliver Twist By Charles Dickens, Chapman and Hall
OLIVER TWIST CHAPTER I TREATS OF THE PLACE WHERE OLIVER TWIST WAS BORN AND OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES ATTENDING HIS BIRTH

This has lots of applications in the language and literature classes, as well as teacher blogs for students, where critical analysis can occur.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Social Networking goes primary

The Social networking phenomenon went to primary school this week when the Disney Corporation bought the newly successful Club Penguin for a few hundred million dollars.

From the Club Penguin site:

“Chatting and gaming are the two most popular online activities for kids, yet most virtual worlds are focused on an older audience. We wanted to create a fun, online world that we’d be comfortable letting our own kids visit.”

So where will social networking end, or rather, when will it enter your classroom as a viable way?
