Feedly is amazing! Not only am I able to find resources for almost anything I search, but I am able to connect with other teachers from around the world. The ease of being able to search has certainly taken the weight off of my shoulders when looking into have other blogs that I can gain insight from as opposed to just casting out a net on the interweb and hoping I get a bite!
I found one blog which I have been hooked on for the past two weeks. It is called “Dangerously Irrelevant” by the blogger Scott Mcleod. His blog focuses on technology, leadership and the future of schools. One of his latest posts “The real reason we ban cell phones”, hones in on the importance of why teachers think of cell phones as a negative towards their lack of attention arising. I then goes on to outline the reasons in which why cellphones are important and provides some links to articles that support these arguments.
The benefits behind Feedly are plenty, however I find it takes a long time to load and you do need to be more specific in searching. If you search with too broad of a topic, your results become to heavy and too wide of a range so finding resources becomes tougher.
I find many of my teaching views align with Mcleod. I am glad to have connected with a blog I find enjoyment in reading. Feedly has led me to other great blogs and some that I believe will come in had for my learning project which I will post about very soon!
