Einstein, Minecraft, Typing, and Me

Four great posts came across my reader this week that I thought I’d share. The first is an Albert Einstein archive that houses over 81,000 Einstein and Einstein-related archival items: writings, professional & personal correspondence. Second is a great post written by fellow Singapore Tech Specialist, Colin Gallagher, all about implementing Minecraft in the elementary school. The third item is a great new keyboarding resource  for kids and adult learners. Lastly, a new infographic tool from Intel that allows you to create a personal infographic about yourself highlighting your social media uses (Twitter, Facebook, YouTube).

Minecraft: A Journey

Minecraft Week 5 Flyabout: 1 from Colin Gallagher on Vimeo.

Educational Technologist Colin Gallagher walks you through the whys, hows, what-ifs and oh-yeahs of implementing a MineCraft class in the elementary school.

Typing Club

I’ve written a lot about keyboarding sites for kids, and here is another great resource to add to that list. Typing Club is one of the best and most robust free programs to come along in a while. There is a teacher portal (beta) which lets you manage multiple classes, students, and keep track of progress.

What About Me?

What About Me is a site created by the folks at Intel that allows you to create an infographic about yourself via your social media postings and interactions.
