Every month I make a short list highlighting my choices of the best resources I shared through Twitter, but didn’t necessarily include them in posts here on my blog.
I’ve already shared in earlier posts this month several new resources I found on Twitter — and where I gave credit to those from whom I learned about them. Those are not included again in this post.
Here are my picks for August’s Best Tweets (not listed in any order):
Da Vinci’s lion springs to life: Using original plans by Leonardo da Vinci, his life-like lion is built in this video.
“Top 10 Apologies” TIME Mag. slideshow, from Plato to Mark Sanford
Well-done interactive showing the quantity of fossil fuels needed for items on dinner plate
Corporal Punishment In Schools, NY Times infographic showing which states allow it & who uses it most
Infographic showing items you eat & what exercise you have to do to work off their calories
“I Learned It At The movies” very interesting research piece on how teachers can use film effectively
“AfriGadget: Solving Everyday Problems with African Ingenuity” looks like neat place to learn about Africa.
