Yesterday, WordPress.com announced that they’ve added the ability to embed a Google Document into a blog posting. This is something that I’ve used over and over again in wikis that I’ve worked with but now this opens the possibilities right in the middle of a blog post.
In other totally unrelated news, @aforgrave and I’ve wondered back and forth the value of QR Codes in the classroom. At times, some of the suggestions that people come up with seem contrived just to use the technology. Like in my recent post?
Now, I know that the readers of my blog are some of the brightest and insightful folks on the web so I’m going to challenge you by using this new embedding feature.
Below, I’ve embedded a Google Form where I’m going to ask three questions.
Thank you, in advance, for answering and participating in my little experiment and research project.

The Physics of Angry Birds | Wired Science | Wired.com
You know the game, I know you know. Angry Birds. I have an attraction to games like this. You can play for just a little bit at a time (like that) and each time you shoot, you could get a slightly different result. Oh, you don’t know Angry Birds? Well, the basic idea is that you launch these birds (which are apparently angry) with a sling shot. The goal is to knock over some pigs. Seriously, that is the game.
