Mash-Ups. Cyber-worlds collide.

In an attempt to keep you abreast of what's new and cool, I must discuss one of the hottest 2.0 tools out there - Mash-Ups. A mash-up, by definition, is a web application that combines data from more than one source into a single integrated tool. Mash-Ups were originally created by hip-hop artists. A good example - taking Led Zeppelin music and overlapping it with Ludacris lyrics - creating a "mash-up" or new song. In education, mash-ups are truly in their infancy -but rest assure, creative minds are turning their wheels as we speak.
Check out this article on on techLearning that explains how mash-ups are being used (in the classroom) with Google Maps
