Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through (and learned from) Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.
I thought it might be useful for both readers of this blog and for me to review those monthly lists and pick a few that I think are the very best “tweets” of the year.
Here are my choices fo The Best “Tweets” Of 2009:
National Geographic’s International Photography Contest 2009 from the Big Picture
“Can I Put You On Hold?” NY Times column on “words you hate to hear”
Amazing stuff from the NY Times Innovation Portfolio
I’ve never imagined people would use a trampoline like this (you might not want to listen to the accompanying music, though)
“School is No Place for Heroes, Says One Scholar” is a good article poking holes in the myth that one person can do it all.
An Intriguing Alternative To No Child Left Behind is a good Washington Post column on Richard Rothstein, one of my favorite education writers.
A sign in an English classroom: “Follow your dreams – except for that one where you fly. That never ends well.” (thanks to MagistraM for the tip)
Odyssey Online is an extremely well-done & accessible interactive on ancient Greece.
