Tweeting Round-Up

Its that time of the week where we share what we have been reading and sharing on Twitter.
Our Maths series has become hugely popular on Scribd. You can take a look at some of our books on our Scribd account. If someone had to tweet Moby-Dick, it would take 12,849 updates for the entire story to unfold.

The Gates Foundation granted $100K each To 81 wild ideas. We were reading about “Incentives that work in Education“. Also, take a look at Chris Jordan’s portraits of global mass culture. Mother’s Day is over, but we took a look at this question and answer session with elementary school children about mothers. Take a look at Readius, the pocket E-reader. We were also reading “Endpaper – Fiction reaches a new level“.
