A Fun Calendar App for Your Blog

This is more of a "fun" post than a serious ed tech post, but I know some readers will like it. Yesterday, I noticed a neat calendar app on Steven Anderson's blog. The app is called the Human Calendar. The Human Calendar is a widget that you can place in your blog or website to display the date using images of people holding up signs displaying the day of the week, the month, and the year.

Installing the Human Calendar is a simple matter of copying the embed code provided and placing it where you want in your blog or website. You can also add the Human Calendar to your Google Homepage. Check it out below.


Applications for Education
There are not many (any?) specific uses for the Human Calendar in education other than providing a neat way to display the date to visitors to your course blog or website.
