Cyber Monday March 19 2012

So every Monday I meet with my elementary teachers and I share 5-10 resources with them that I have found or we talk about possible ideas they want to implement. I figured I would do a quick blog post recording these so they can go back and see what we went over in case they miss it.


The first thing we talked about was dealing with information overload. I explained the benefits of RSS and showed how to subscribe to feeds via Google Reader.
