Tweetal Lunar Eclipse


There’s a total lunar eclipse tonight (15-16 June 2011), or very early tomorrow morning for Australia and SE Asia. Click here for a chart from NASA on when and where it will be visible and how much of it  you can expect to see.


I also finally caved in and got Twitter. @iBiologyStephen, if you will. There’s a little Twitter widget up on the top right of the blog that will take you to my profile. Beyond the basics of leaving messages, getting into PD and checking out updates, what novel – and effective – ways are you putting Twitter to work in class? Add your ideas in the comments below or tweet me. That’s how I roll now.

  1. Hey Stephen!

    Hope you are enjoying your holidays. Your post had impeccable timing as I am in the process of setting up a Churchill Biology twitter account. Basically, just links to exciting articles and websites that I find during the course of the day sent straight to pupil Blackberrys! Like your website but mobile! I am sure there are other more meaningful ways to use it but my pupils are SO reluctant to read outside the classroom that I thought this might be a good way of starting the process. They seem more likely to click on a link then open a book!

    • Hi Hina,

      Still at school, but we finish next week. I thought I’d give it a go – and like you say people are becoming more used to clicking on links than opening books. That’s true for me!

      Good luck!
