September 23, 2009 - The Outback visits Sydney Australia. A massive dust storm - the largest in over 100 years blew millions of tonnes of dust from Central Australia across a front more than 600km wide, turning the Sydney sky red, then orange then yellow and coating everything with fine dust.
These images were all sourced from Flickr where over 2,500 such images were posted today. Of course, which other song could go with this than "Dust in the Wind" by Kansas.

I would love to be able to introduce this soon.
Stu’s Double Jeopardy (for Windows) borrows from the lasting legacy of the popular TV gameshow, Jeopardy! to make an exciting, interactive and educational computer-based gameshow available to everybody.
As Interactive Whiteboards (IWBs) and data projectors become more widely used in schools, there is a need for motivating, interactive and educational software to complement them.
– Jeopardy can be played by up to 6 teams!
Check out the quizzes
In addition to these quizzes, there are specific instructions for creating and sharing your own quizzes as well. For younger learners you can use images for the questions.
Look where we could go with it in the future.
Stu's Double Jeopardy! is available free of charge. Thank you Stu Hasic!!
Mixbook allows educators even easier access to a powerful suite of digital storytelling tools on the web.
