Okay, so I definitely left this blog post to the last minute possibly. But in my excuse I’ve been in an out of the hospital since Monday with the damn flu. Turns out I should’ve gotten my flu shot this year. Anyways, today is the first day where I have actually gotten out of bed and have been awake for longer than an hour (small achievements are still achievements!). So I figured I’d return to Feedly and explore it some more. I created a Feedly during out last EDTC 300 Zoom class, but I hadn’t created any feeds yet.
The first thing I typed into the search bar for sources was Education, and TED-Ed and Free Technology for Teachers were two of the first things to pop up so I decided to follow both of those. I have followed Edutopia on Twitter for a few years now and I knew that I wanted to follow them on my Feedly as well, so a click click click later and Edutopia was added to my Education feed. I really enjoy and find the video’s that Edutopia posts to be very informational and informing. One video I watched recently that I really enjoyed was this one. During my internship, I always tried my hardest to be in the classroom to say good morning to each and everyone of my grade 7 and 9 students. And every morning those grade 7 and 9’s said good morning right back and we would have a conversation about what they did last night and how their sports went or what they did on weekend. Some times they would try to come early to class just so they could talk to me for a few extra minutes, it really was heartwarming.
I have also now followed TED (uploads on Youtube) and I have made an Entertainment feed as well. This is what my Feedly looks like so far:
