BP1_Google Reader

I've been learning so many Web 2.0 tools this past four months in all of my courses.  One that I am excited about using is Google Reader.  Google reader allows me to receive updates for my online subscriptions to blogs, online publications, and podcasts.
I have subscribed to five RSS feeds that I feel will help be in my teaching and my AR project.  They all have to do with technology in education.
iLT-Change-the-world.pngThe first is iLearn Technology.  This is an educator's blog about ideas on how to integrate technology in the classroom. There are a number of lesson plans, flip charts and freebies.  I can't wait to get some time to browse through the archive to see what I've missed and become inspired.

Education Technology Insight is a sight aimed at educators wanting to integrate technology in their teaching. I believe by subscribing to their RSS feed, I will be able to learn a lot of research behind technologies, opinions and other educators experience using different technologies.

Dr. Tony Karrer is CEO/CTO of TechEmpower, a Los Angeles Web Development firm, and is considered on of the top technologists in e-Learning.  His blog eLearning Technology will help me with portions of my AR project.  I have already gotten information from him about benefits of text-to-speech.

Thinkfinity is a site I visit quite often to get ideas for lesson planning.  Being a subscriber to their RSS feed will save me so much time searching.

I hope you find these sites helpful as well.  Check back to see what else I have learned that I can share with you!
