Last summer many of you helped create our wonderful lists of grade-level and subject-specific blogs that other educators could load into their RSS readers. I’m bouncing around a few thoughts in my head about those lists:
Should we require school employees to have loaded RSS readers (with a concurrent expectation that they spend time checking them and reading in them)?
How would the lives of the educators in your school organization be different if they regularly spent time with their loaded RSS readers?
How would the lives of preservice educators (i.e., student teachers) be different if they regularly spent time with their loaded RSS readers?
Can we figure out how to give educators professional development / licensure renewal credit for time spent with RSS readers, interacting with other educators in social media channels, etc.? We seem to be able to do so for face-to-face training, discussion groups, school book clubs, and so on…
Thoughts on any of this? Got your own questions you’d like to add to my list?
