Using the Internet to Learn Science Curriculum

written by a mom with a 13 year-old who found her science curriculum about food chains turned into music and video and posted on Youtube. The catchy tunes helped the daughter (and of course her friends as she shared the video on Facebook) study for a test.

"No longer being forced to learn only from your own class, you bring your entire context and the network to the learning process. Students become teachers, teachers become study groups."
