  1. I really like your topic of using the web to enhance teaching.

    We launched LifeSnapz (http://www.lifesnapz.com) to enable people to capture and explore events using photos, videos, timelines and maps, and share these events with trusted groups like families, friends or classmates. We believe there is a use case for teachers to communicate with their students and students’ parents. I’d love to hear your feedback.
    Best regards,
