The Zimmer Twins is a fun way to incorporate technology into the classroom. Watch your students expand their vocabulary, practice proper writing habits, and become junior movie producers all at the same time! Take a few minutes to explore the Zimmer Twins and so you are familiar with the site before using it with your students. Getting Started The best place to start is the help area. Here you'll find answers to common questions as well as movies that act as great guides to new comers. Accounts To save movies visitors need to get a nickname and password by joining the site. Setting up accounts in a classroom can present challenges. Use the site without accounts. Remember that students are welcome to set up their own accounts at home with the help of their parents.

The bill is "officially" designed to help American media companies (Disney, NBC/Universal, etc) try to stop piracy on foreign websites (like, say, the Pirate Bay). But "unofficially" the bill introduces VERY scary control features similar to what China, Iran, and Syria use to patrol/control their citizens. It also proposes some very unsmart things that can literally break how the internet works. Millions of people have been protesting Congress to stop SOPA, but it's a LOT of work since some powerful senators are being helped by those big media companies.
