Feed(ly)ing my brain

The process of choosing my content on feedly had two key words; science and education. As for deciding which ones have the pleasure of me following, I considered a few things. A: how many others were following, this told me how popular their content is and/or relevant to the majority of the population. B: how many articles they posted a week, this showed how often they would be on my feed, too much I would skim over them and too little they wouldn’t provide enough content. C: their most popular articles, based on titles did they intrigued me? Did the titles talk about read science where it could benefits me and my growth as a science educator.

One source that I followed is ScienceDaily, being a science teacher it is helpful yet overwhelming to keep with the studies and new developments coming out. This source posts articles on the new discoveries in science and I take that knowledge and see if it is relevant in any of the science curriculums. An example of an article they posted was “Do microbes control the formation of giant copper deposits” this would fit nicely into Environmental and Earth Science .

  1. I like how you really made your feedly account about yours interests! It makes it more easier to search up great resources!! Maybe you can go back in and add a few links! For example, if you linked ScienceDaily it would be easier for your readers to just click on the link rather than opening a new tab and googling it! I do enjoy that you add pictures to your blogs. Makes it more inviting and eye catching 🙂 Keep it up!


  2. You did a great job of choosing your Feedly content wisely. You have inspired me to put more thought into the feeds that I am following and how they will help shape me as an educator.
