(If you haven’t, pause. EdSurge did indeed get tagged--and rose to the challenge.) Along with calling attention to a good cause, this challenge provides a very "chill" opportunity to teach about the power of social media and the web. Cool Cat Teacher and edublogger Vicki Davis provides a great lesson plan for doing just that and making the challenge into a "teachable moment."
