Episode 146 – Keeping up with EdTech: Twitter, Diigo, and RSS Feeds

(Music plays)

Tom: It’s Thursday, February 28th, 2013 and welcome to episode 146 of Tech Talk 4 Teachers, I’m Tom Grissom. Cindy: and I’m Cindy Rich.

In this episode we talk about some of the tips and tricks we use to keep up with the constant flow of information coming at us daily. It is easy to become overwhelmed but there are some things you can do to keep ahead of the game. In this episode we explore some of the technology we use to manage and archive the vast amounts of information we receive each day. As usual we also share our Technology Picks of the Week and discuss the ICE 2013 conference currently underway and how to take advantage of using hashtags on Twitter like #ice13 even if you cannot attend in person.
