Time for Play

Saw this fun app on the Techno Constructivist blog where Carl Anderson is using it to promote Social Networking in Schools.  It's a cute idea for capturing the reader's attention and focusing in on short specific points.  One draw back in setting up a string of these players on a blog is that they all load and play at the same time.  To hear them clearly, click on each of the six posts separately.  When you're creating  your own, just refresh the page each time you want to create a new one.  There's no back button.

Yesterday was a stellar day for some really original April Fool's Day jokes.  I was almost late for work as I watched the Twitter stream take-over by Will Richardson's fans.  Google had everything from a name change to a vowel outage and a new translator tool.  For more foolish fun see my delicious bookmarks.
