The Twitter Trio (4)

1. Wordia

Wordia is a new online dictionary that brings words to life via videos. Check out this video for the word cliche.

2. WGBH Open Vault

Open Vault is a Media Library and Archives. Search through the archive of broadcast series and programs. Here below is a link to Dr Martin Luther King Jr's famous "I have a Dream" speech.

3. The UNDP-Olympus-AFP Foundation Photo Contest

The Millenium Development Goals are a global undertaking to end poverty. The goals are:

Eradicate extreme poverty and hunger

Achieve universal primary education

Promote gender equality and empower women

Reduce child mortality

Improve maternal health

Combat HIV/AIDS, malaria and other diseases

Ensure environmental sustainability

Develop a Global Partnership for Development

Contestants can enter photos that focus on progress towards the millenium goals. The photo below was taken by GB Mukherji shows a maths teacher with high school students. Some day, the teacher told the photographer, one of them will become a scientist.

The Twitter Trio is a weekly feature on my blog. My goal is to share resources and information that I have found via Twitter with my readers.
