Still don't see the educational benefits of Twitter? Try Flipboard

I recently blogged over at the new Sony Education site about how the app Flipboard can "unpack the power of social media." If you are still in the camp that sees little benefit in Twitter or other social media, you are guaranteed to be impressed if you give Flipboard on the iPad, your iPhone, or any Android device a spin. Yes, I said, "Guarantee". If you are not fully impressed, I will buy you lunch in the Bentheim Elem. cafeteria on hotdog day.

Here is my post. "Flipboard unpacks the power of Social Media in the Classroom" Tell me what you think.
