The amount of information in web 2.0 is astounding.  It is fast, constant, and immense.  When I used to go to the stacks and bury myself in journals, I now sit at home and it just pours in.  Nice.  No wonder we are getting fatter.

Okay, enough on the human condition in our automated world.  Because I am a Librarian/Media Specialist, I am looking at finding the latest and greatest on teaching technology.  Because Project Based Learning is probably going to be a part of my Action Research, I found Reinventing Project-Based Learning (http://reinventingpbl.blogspot.com/feeds/posts/default).  

I am following Edutopia (http://www.edutopia.org).  Edutopia is hip, current, and broad.  It is excellent with hitting on best teaching practices and trends across the country. 

I am also following Educational Technology (http://people.uis.edu/rschr1/et/).  I am finding that the articles are varied.  I will have to pay a little more attention to the source than I will with Edutopia.

eLearn Magazine (feed://www.elearnmag.org/elearn.xml) has an interesting angle on technology in the classroom.  They have a humanistic approach and look at the human interaction and technology.  

Finally, I am following eSchool News (http://www.eschoolnews.com/feed/).  This feed has an array of articles on how technology is being used and the latest and greatest products out there.  

What is also a little intimidating about these feeds and blogs is that not only do I receive and read RSS feeds, I also comment on others' blogs and they comment on my blog and I read their comments and look at their feeds and read those and...  I am going to need my rest.
