32 Tricks You Can Do With Wolfram Alpha, The Most Useful Site In The History Of The Internet

32 Tricks You Can Do With Wolfram Alpha, The Most Useful Site In The History Of The Internet | Web 2.0 in the classroom | Scoop.it

Wolfram Alpha is probably the most useful site on the internet.

It’s not a search engine, it’s not an encyclopedia, and it’s not a calculator, but it’s a little bit of all of that. It’s really the only member of its field.

Here are some of the coolest things you can do with it.

Education Rethink @edrethink: Ten Ideas for Using Instagram in the Classroom | Web 2.0 in the classroom | Scoop.it

T IS FOR TEACHING | Web 2.0 in the classroom | Scoop.it
CAMPBELL Walsh was sick of waiting for his NAPLAN test results. ''I wanted to know how I'd done.
In another era, Campbell might have been told to sit down and be quiet. Instead, his teacher, Bec Spink, suggested he post the question on social networking site Twitter. Campbell had an even better idea: why not tweet to the Prime Minister? Spink didn't skip a beat. ''Righto,'' she said.
