After reading his blog, I went right to the support services team at school and shared this chrome tool and then showed them how to access it themselves via chrome extensions. A cool side benefit is that I also showed these folks the cool world of Chrome add-ons and extensions. Because of Matt's blog and my PLN, the learning and reading specialist, the head of support services, and the ESL teacher all now can share with their students this effective tool. I was pleased to hear the reading specialist explain to me why she thinks the extension is a useful tool for those who have dyslexia.
Yesterday, AJ Juliani shared his reading list. Though my list is not as vast as his, here are some of the people and sites that I read almost daily.
- AJ Juliani - A great big-picture and inspirational tech though leader. For AJ, it is always about the bigger questions. It isn't really about the tech, it is about what tech allows us to do.
- Learn, Lead, Grow - Matt Bergman is a thoughtful tech innovator.
- Jordan Shapiro at Forbes magazine always offers provocative articles about education and education policy.
- +Alice Keeler- a true Google guru. What doesn't she know how to do? I can't keep up with her output. But she is amazing.
- Finally, I check out this Education Technology and Mobile Learning blog for its broad array of tips and tools.
