I often have a whole bunch of free floating facts in my brain and most of it comes from listening to CBC Radio. I have been listening since I was a zygote and if I had my way, I would listen to CBC for at least 8 hours a day. As a result, I find many things that would be a fit in the FFP classroom through the radio.
Here is the latest: a 5 episode series called ReCivilization hosted by Don Tapscott. It explores the impact and possibility of collaborative technology in several different areas. I think it ties right into Civics. Maybe too heady for some but I find it fascinating. In episode 5, there is an interview with Mitchell Baker, the Chairperson of the Mozilla Foundation. Her interview inspires me to use more open source software.
