Ed Tech Resources - October 14th, 2013

As technology teacher leaders, we are always looking for tech tips to share with you. My two main curation tools for doing this have been Feedly and Twitter. Feedly is a news aggregator that replaced Google Reader some time ago. I subscribe to many different blogs that share ideas on education, education technology, science, etc. The feeds for each blog gets sent directly to my Feedly account. Every other week or so, I scroll through all of the recent blog posts and read the ones that sound interesting. Depending on what it is, I may bookmark that particular article on Diigo or share it on Twitter. 

I also follow numerous educators, administrators, and products directly on Twitter. Every once in a while, I will scroll through my Twitter feed, looking for relevant information. Once I find something I like, I again either bookmark the information or "re-tweet" it on Twitter. 

So, what does this mean? Two things. First, if you use Twitter, you can follow me (@mrmularella) to see the resources I am sharing. My Twitter feed can be found here. You will notice I rarely tweet myself! Second, many future blog posts will just be a collection of online resources for you to explore. Rather than write one tip myself, it's much easier and quicker to share online resources written by others (who frankly do a much better job than me anyway). 

iOS 7 Resources
The new iPhone/iPad operating system was released about a month ago. Before you have students update their iPad (wait until you hear from Alex!!), we recommend you learn a bit more about this new OS. It can take some getting used to at first.
