EDUCATIONAL USES OF MASHUPS
In education, mashups rely on open and transparent resources, materials, and formats for both teachers' and students' exploration, presentation, and learning. Mashups are used as an instructional tool by teachers or as a creative tool by students. Teachers can use mashups to engage students in investigation and inquiry-based learning. Students become the participant as they engage with knowledge, remix information, and share products. Mashups go hand-in-hand with constructivist learning and provide opportunities to teach literacy, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and the arts.
