Teaching Paperless

I have enjoyed the Teaching Paperless blog for a while, but I really loved this activity. One, it plays into middle school, high school curiosity about simple things that are really complex, and it is an incredible ways to stretch the concept that we are able to get real-time information through social media to confirm, update, and extend our understanding of things. The graphic also reminds me of a college linguistics course that I loved where we talked about the various terms for a variety of things and their local origins. Soda, pop, soda pop anyone.
