Have you been YouTubed Today?

A quick post as I wanted share two YouTube videos I found this week.

First, Wikis in Plain English but CommonCraft. This has been watched over 6,000 times since May 29. It gives a clever and understandable explanation of how a wiki can be used to facilitate online collaboration and how advantageous this is compared to using email.

Second, you are going to laugh at this one,
Love Two Point Oh (the key) by johnnyonline. This has been watched nearly 100,000 times since may 6. Johnnyonline is a musician with a sense of humour. The song is about unrequited love in a Web 2.0 world. The lyrics are available on the YouTube page as well. I think I will play this for my senior students and get them to identify the key IT words and then go about explaining them.
