Hello everyone! This week, I created an account with Feedly.com. I was a little skeptical of how I would feel about this app as it seemed harder to work than I wanted. After getting started, I realized that it is so simple and useful in the life of a teacher. I followed many educational accounts which provided articles on experiences, resources, tips and so much more.
I also created a second feed called "#English" as that is my major and finding resources and support in that subject area is extremely important to me. While choosing which accounts to follow, I was trying to follow the ones that I thought would be able to benefit me with the areas I struggle. Classroom management is always an ongoing struggle so I followed a few based on the articles they posted about that. One of the key topics I was searching for was technology in the classroom, which is also why I am taking this class. I love to put on PowerPoints or videos in the classroom, but I'm quite lame when it comes to how much more I could be doing. My goal through this class and through Feedly now is to find fun and engaging ways to incorporate technology into the classroom without taking away from the actual lesson.
I love Feedly so far - I'm interested in poking around a little more and maybe discovering some new accounts or features on the app itself. Either way, this app is my best friend for finding and sharing resources! Here is a picture of my feed board right now in case you want to check out any of the accounts that I follow:
