A Tech Tool (Toy?):

File this under the "how could I use this for a lesson" file... (with thanks to my twitterfriend, Kyle Calderwood, for sharing...)

1. Grab your phone and head over to (Seriously, you should do this right now...)

2. Make a digital "paper plane" stamped with your location.

3. "Fly" your plane, along with the thousands and thousands of others that have been thrown out there from across the globe.

4. Use your digital net to catch planes others have thrown, and see where else they have been "caught."

What do you think? Is this just fun and games? Or could there be real learning that happens here?


  1. Crazy! Mine is flying...let me know when you catch it!

    1. It's fun, isn't it? :-) I'm thinking of some neat ways geography teachers could use this...
