Did you miss the State of the Union address by President Obama last night? This Wordle word cloud created with the text of the speech summarizes some of the emphasized themes.
The full speech is available on Whitehouse.gov. Note all the interactive features provided on that website. Among other things it shares the “official” Twitter hash tag for the speech and event, #sotu. Our president and his administration fully embrace the constructive power of social media as a communication platform. Where are school leaders in your community in their thinking about social media and learning in the classroom? Are your principals and superintendent on Twitter yet? Perhaps it’s time they joined the conversations and connected learning there?
For a shorter summary of the speech, check out coverage on CNN Student News today.
