Due to a little technical hiccup, I was only able to enjoy the webinar from the comfort of the twitter-sphere. So I missed out on a lot. Fill me in, please.

What were your favorite parts?

What was most compelling?

What ideas do you hope take to school with you tomorrow?

Mapping the school grounds could also be done using Google Sketchup. Perhaps better for middle and upper school students.
