“This song speaks about people who have the light of education and start off on their own but continued to have the same attitude.

Student Engagement with Issues that Matter Using Social Media (#TeachDoNow) is a collaborative learning experience open to anyone interested in learning how to use Twitter and other media sharing applications to promote social and civic discourse with students around science, news and the arts.
