That was a lot of information to absorb! I feel like I have to read everything and go to all the sites and before I know it, time has gotten away from me. It took me much longer to go through Tool 2 and I feel like I've barely skimmed the surface. I visited the sites listed and especially liked Educator's PLN. I subscribed to their site. They had great videos, especially the surfer dog! I think this would be great for teachers to see and think about how it could relate to their perceptions of their students.
I already have a Diigo account and now have created a Google Reader account. Creating the account was easy but I had a bit of trouble attaching sites. I called on my tech expert ( who else but my son) and now have several sites attached including Jensen-Learning, the Learning Network, IES What's New, Read Write Think, and TED Talks. I now know what an RSS feed is!
