Some of you may follow me on Twitter (or Jaiku) and will know I flit around the South-West and sometimes further afield.
Looks like there’s a new Twitterer to follow and they’re on Mars.
Nasa are using Twitter (amongst other web tools and sites) to update people on what the Pheonix Mars Lander is doing on Mars.
This to me illustrates another way in which micro-blogging tools can be used to provide information and interesting stuff to learners.
One of the features of Twitter is that the tweets are available as an RSS feed and therefore can be fed into a browser or into a VLE (such as Moodle).
Interesting article about teaching from space.
Asked how teaching compared to being an astronaut, Mrs Morgan, 55, replied: “Astronauts and teachers actually do the same thing. We explore, we discover and we share.
“And the great thing about being a teacher is you get to do that with students, and the great thing about being an astronaut is you get to do it in space, and those are absolutely wonderful jobs.”
