In the Classroom:

SlideShare has a widget called Playlist that creates a customized list of your uploaded presentations or other presentations that you have in your Favorites list. The playlist can be embedded on a blog or wiki.

This is a playlist centered around the book Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs by Judi Barrett that is being shared with elementary teachers and librarians. The playlist included a cyberlesson based on the book and related presentations about weather found on SlideShare.
