Feedly Hunting

I initially had a difficult time navigating through Feedly. I was a little lost when I was searching for articles to read. It seemed like it kept taking me to websites trying to sell their content. It took some time to figure out what I was doing.

I created my three feeds which were Edtech, Education and FN content. I was able to filter out a few article that I liked.

The first being a article about teaching code to your students. It amazing to me that coding is being introduced to students. It used to seem so futuristic and unattainable. But now I see it could be quite easy. This program that this article writes about is very interesting. They use comic book like illustrations and narratives to help entertain your students motivation.

Students will work through these stories building on their understanding of coding. Students are dealt difficult situations where they will have to use their coding knowledge to get through puzzles. These narrations seem very elaborate. I couldn’t help but think back to some of my previous students who would of loved this program.

Education is always changing and becoming more accessible through the use of technology. Coding seem so far fetch to be taught, let alone to teach in a classroom. This is reminded that education is sometimes a step out of your comfort zones.

The second article I chose was a project based ideal list. I honestly love lists. They help me focus and stay on track what needs to be done. It is way to help keep my ideas separated and conveniently all right in front of me… I just love lists.

Secondly, I chose this article because it is way to share and build on your own projects. There is no one way to teach a subject. It also easy to become stale in your strategies. So keeping refreshed in your practice and engaged with new strategies will be beneficial. Not only for yourself, but as well as your students.

One thought on “Feedly Hunting

  1. Feedly is a good tool to narrow your content focus, but agree that you can still be lead to unwanted places. I liked that you shared a resource about teaching students how to code. This topic still seems very foreign and ‘futuristic’ to me but you are right that as educators, we must be willing to step out of our comfort zones too!
