……is a neat new entry into a teacher’s toolkit – if you’re brave enough to give it an experimental go!
Mashable also wrote about this simple but brilliant gimmick that they dubbed a Social Browsing Widget.

The way it could be used is governed by the comment field, which you position with your mouse after writing the text. The comments don’t stay on screen for long, so it’s not about marking up a page with comments, but rather having a fun tool – perhaps online with other classes – to throw some ideas around and generate discussion.
Try this out on your wiki some time soon 🙂
I just enabled that’s my mouse on my website. Any ideas on how to get people to use it?
I’m enjoying your blog, Judy.
