A Royal Post #edtech

No, I didn't get caught up in the Royal Wedding hysteria.  I did not wake up at 3 am to watch the "Wedding of the Century".  I did wake up around 4:30 to get ready for work, and did open my eyes to part of the event taking place.  I did see another few minutes on YouTube, just becuase I was curious how they covered the event live.  Was this why YouTube brought back live streaming?  And I certainly won't be buying any Tea Cozy emblazoned with the Royal Couples faces!  I do have an Irish lineage after all. And yes, the Irish Guards uniform worn by William today got the blood boiling just a bit.
But I am aware that most of the world was captivated.  So, in honor of William and Katherine and since it is Fun Friday, I thought I'd share the BBC's Primary History Site.  American's often forget there are other networks out there and are probably familiar with a number of resources for students at PBS.org  If we expand our horizons with the web we can really find some valuable resources. The BBC's Primary History Site has lessons online, resources for teachers and even built in quizes.  The activities are fun and educational. There is way too much to cover in one blog post so I encourage you to explore the resources on your own.
