It is no secret that television is not Ms. Annie Sells thing!
My mother did one hell of a job protecting me from mass media especially via television until I was 18 years old. But we sure learned to appreciated good literature, strategy games, puzzles, and classic movies. Nevermind I read my way through many a library! Many thanks Momma.
Now if television isn’t your thing… if you, like me, long ago gave up on RSS feeds and you hate getting tons of subscription emails in your personal email, then I would like to recommend Flipboard.
Flipboard is a fully customizable app that allows you to keeping your finger on the pulse of things.
Yes, I know the last thing you need is another app. But is it not worth a few minutes to check it out? I dare you. http://flip.it/KbXXi
When I am no totally swamped, I try to log in a few times a week, before bed. The key to Flipboard’ s usefulness is keywords and searching by topic.
I have been using Flipboard since October 2012 and pulled together a “board” as a snapshot of some of my interests during that time, for you.
(Hint: It is great for pulling together online resources in one place — students, educators, and business and industry friends.)
Try it out. Create a few of your own and come back and tell us about it.
