“Don’t lecture me” (with Twitter track) – Donald Clark at ALT-C 2010 – YouTube

Donald Clark giving one of his marvellous signature incendiary talks about how to avoid bad ways of teaching (lecturing in particular) with Twitter accompaniment. The tweets are almost as interesting (though not in a good way) as the talk itself. He was well and truly tweckled. A great talk and a fascinating glimpse of the power of backchannels.
