The amount of information found via the web is amazing, and hard to assimilate. One method for finding new content is to check reputable awards sites. One very good award web site to follow is the "Eddies", also known as the Edublog award site. Dating back to 2004, these awards recognize top blogs in the educational field ... from corporate to educational.
This year's nominees find me reviewing and subscribing to three new blogs (and maintaining my subscription to Tony Karrer's eLearning Technology):
- Clive on Learning - from the United Kingdom
- Mobile Learning - from Australia
- Technology Enhanced Learning - from Germany
It goes without saying that without the use RSS, you receive only imited value from new content. If RSS is still a new concept to you, link and watch this short video. You will then need software. Here is my software recommendation, GreatNews, along with some screencasts.
One final point, note how the three blogs which I am newly monitoring are from countries other than my own. If you don't believe that culture affects one's viewpoint on many subjects, please reconsider. The intelligent person recognizes the affect of their own cultural norms, and tries to move beyond those imitations.
