GwynethJones's insight:

I'm one of the fans who found this season formulaic & dreary.

I wanted adventure - I got angst.


I LOVE Peter Capaldi as a person, he's delightful on the Graham Norton show, he's a TRUE Dr. Who fan outside of his celebrity (he wrote to them as a kid, then as a grownup) but as the Doctor he was querulous and sad.

Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View

Travel the Egyptian Pyramids with Google Street View | Daring Gadgets, QR Codes, Apps, Tools, & Displays | Scoop.it

In my life prior to becoming a full-time geeky girl, I was a sixth grade teacher. Throughout those 17 years, my favorite subject to teach was social studies. Within this content area, I loved, loved to share the knowledge (and excitement) I have about the ancient Egyptians. I was—and still am—particularly fascinated with the mummification process and even more so, the Pyramids of Giza.

 

That said, imagine my delight when I opened my browser to “Google” something, and I got a load of the latest tech gem my favorite search engine has to offer.

GwynethJones's insight:

I also have always been fascinated by ancient Egypt....and because of the political climate right now - it doesn't look like I'll ever get to visit  - so here's how to do it from home & for school, too!
