Laura thanks so much for sharing that resource! Do consider putting it up above in the discussion forum as things on the wall tend to get buried and lost over time plus if you post in the discussion forum it will be shared during a week in review!

I'm just back from the Worlds Together conference in London.

This is the myShakespeare link

"measuring Shakespeare's digital heartbeat."

I'm a teacher ed person about to team-teach a "Teaching Shakespeare" class with a Shakespeare scholar (rock star Ayanna Thompson - here's a link to her book).

I'm interested in all things that may help us talk about teaching Shakespeare in the desert... Laura Turchi

Well the NYT people are probably more to thank - but I'll take the credit :)

Humm, it should be right above us - in the discussion forum - I don't see it up above.

You should just be able to click "+ Start Discussion" and add the resource to the forum.

Not e-cranky in the least! I am a long time embedder, put was distracted by the 'where'...Did I put in the right place?

I think everyone organizes their Ning differently - that's just what I've seen as working well to keep our resources organized here.

The embedding video skillz - those are very transferable to all kinds of Nings, wikis and blogs :) It isn't a big deal - and I hope my e-tone didn't sound cranky - just something worth saving above!! Very cute clip / book concept!

Thanks Ryan. Still a Ning-baby, I am!
Comment by Ryan Goble on April 28, 2010 at 9:38am
Kristen - thanks for sharing that - you might consider (pretty please) moving the video up into the discussion forum and embedding the video here!! Just remember to embed the video code with the HTML tab clicked.

That is the kind of resource we wouldn't want to get buried in the comment wall! If you post it up there other folks can easily find it, I can share it during the week in review AND I can link it to the Hamlet resources!!

You can pull the embed code by using this button on the YouTube videos..
