Trends in Ed 7.21.09
I've been enjoying the current moon fervor a lot lately. Isn't there something nice about having space in the news again? In any case, I thought I'd highlight some of the web content put together in honor of the moon landing's 40th anniversary. Unfortunately, the computer I use here at EdLab isn't well-equipped to view some of these sites, so I haven't been able to get a hold of all of the content myself yet. The first, of course, is Google Moon, the addition of the moon to Google Earth. I haven't tried this out in the software yet, but I've been enjoying playing around with the online version. In addition, there's WeChooseTheMoon.org, which allows users to track the mission in real time, complete with Twitter feeds of mission control transmissions. Finally, NASA's put up a real-time stream of audio from the mission, available here. I find these real-time web exhibits sort of interesting. Are there other good examples of historical events explored in this format?
