Tool 2 : Building My Online Community

I dont think that building an online community is a totally new idea for most of us.  Almost all of us have a FB account and many of us have 2 or 3 in order to split up our personal and professional lives.  Sharing personal thoughts online is not a problem for most.  In fact some people share too much!  Using something like this blog could be a useful tool for staying connected to our students and other classrooms and ideas in the world.  Having an online presence and community geared towards the classroom can only broaden our global view and knowledge abse and make us all better at what we do.

The Physics of Angry Birds

This link is to a blogger who has used physics to describe the motion of the birds in the game Angry Birds.  I have created one lesson already using the plain red birds, but this guy is now looking at the other birds.  Be sure to check out the  "See Also" section at the bottom of the blog for more Angry Birds Physics.
