Students And Their Emailing Lessons
from the oops dept
By now, just about everyone has heard the story of the elementary school that tried an email experiment where the kids all send off emails to find out how far they can travel around the world, and soon the students (and the school) are overwhelmed with thousands of emails from all over the world. Yet, according to the NY Times, unprepared teachers keep on setting up the same experiment and keep getting the same painful results. It seems that the teachers themselves need a little lesson in viral marketing, and just how quickly it can take off.
