I got an email from Jenith Mishne pointing this out. As she said in her subject line, it looks like Yahoo is jumping on the bandwagon. (We’re preparing for the third Google Teacher Academy, which will be here in Southern California.) Of course, this is one tech company trend I won’t complain about. Free services and resources for teachers is always good.
Here’s Jenith’s message:
Have you all seen this….
Somehow the video was weird to watch. They’ve built a good lesson sharing tool, from the looks of it, but otherwise it doesn’t seem that… innovative. I guess Flickr is Yahoo!, though, and there are probably a handful of other cool tools teachers can (and do) use. It’ll be good to keep an eye on. Thanks to Jenith for the heads up.
